Security for Schools, Colleges and Universities
Schools/colleges and universities need good security practices to protect students not just from the physical threat, but also from crime.
Security for schools, colleges and universities needs to be balanced against the requirement to have a friendly and welcoming atmosphere within the education sector. This ensures all staff, students and parents feel comfortable and safe. There is also a need to ensure that vital equipment and supplies are kept safe from crime. It is important to mitigate against these risks with proportionate and effective measures. At Abbey Protect we have developed a range of security products and training courses to achieve this.
Budgets are clearly a huge issue and any security solutions need to be mitigated against this. This needs to be balanced with profiling security threats. Laboratories have access to dangerous chemicals, students may be vulnerable to attack, however they may also be the attackers. Perimeters need to be secure and so there are multiple security issues to consider.
