Facility Security Assessments
Our assessment will help the school district improve the safety and security of their students and staff alike through our proven method of
Deter, Detect, Delay and Respond
We break our assessment into four separate sections: Behavioral, Infrastructure, Technology, and the Site itself. The changes are outlined, the issues itemized, and the improvement costs estimated. Site plans include the locations of the issues identified, as well as photographs depicting the problems we observe.
We provide an assessment that will help faculty members better secure the building.
This includes visitor management protocol, keeping doors and windows closed and locked, establishing and practicing lock down procedures, maintaining good relationships and open communication with local authorities, and monitoring existing security infrastructure.
We perform a walk-through of the building and inspect existing conditions at exterior doors, vestibules, and key points throughout the buildings.
We make note of doors that need to be kept locked at all times and that will need appropriate hardware to do so. We also verify that the existing hardware is working properly on doors that need to remain secure. In some instances where an extra layer of security would be beneficial, we may suggest the installation of additional security doors.
When it comes to technology, it's important to ensure that all existing cameras, monitors, and alarm systems are working properly.
We will assess the condition of your existing systems and suggest locations for additional equipment in order to provide complete security coverage. Technology also covers access control equipment such as video or audio intercom, buzzers, and proximity card readers. We will recommend entrances that would benefit from these systems.
Every school needs exterior protection. We find problem areas and suggest ways to strategically place bollards and gates in order to protect against vehicular attacks.
We also identify any vulnerable utilities on the exterior that would benefit from using security fencing.
