31 Oct 5 Tips to Help Improve School Safety and Security
Eagle Protective Group, while an excellent choice for securing your school, our services are not always within reach to small schools or other educational institutions. Below we outline a few tips to help you improve security on your campus even if you have or don’t have a security staff on staff.
Here are some helpful tips to improving school safety.
- Check your campus for safety and security improvements: Security fences, cameras, lighting and emergency power should be inspected at intervals listed according to the technological guidelines put forth by the equipment or every 6 months if you have no guidelines.
- Create a response team:You need to respond quickly in an emergency. Every member of the response team you have created should have one role to perform and be able to perform it at a moment’s notice.
- Purchase a communication system:In a crisis situation, being able to communicate with the response team is vital. This can mean two-way radios, smartphones with that can retrieve student and staff data (medical information and emergency contacts).
- Publish and practice your response drills:Share your emergency response drills with parents, they will want to know how you intend to safely secure their children in emergencies. Practice these drills regularly.
- Create good relationships with students:Get to know your students and show them you care by being involved. You can head off improper behaviors in students by understanding their individuality and adjusting counseling or help accordingly.
Improving school safety in your school does not have to break the budget, nor do you have to implement draconian systems that treat your children more like inmates rather than students. If you have any questions on how you can improve school safety on your campus, feel free to contact us!
