Incident Prevention and Response: A Holistic Approach to School Security
Today’s schools must be prepared for a security incident at any time. A holistic approach to safety demands an easily-managed security system that delivers the protection students and teachers deserve. Video and access control act as deterrents, providing real-time views of the campus. These systems work in conjunction with panic buttons and two-way communication technology, which give administrators and first responders a way to assess threatening situations, and give faculty and staff an active role in their own security. Join us to find out how you can implement these kinds of solutions in your own schools.
