School Security Starts with a Plan – We Can Help

More than ever, formulating a comprehensive and scalable school physical security plan to guard against the mildest acts of school vandalism to the most egregious acts of school violence, is a critical priority for every school in the St. Louis area. Even if you already have security measures in place, we can assist you with an evaluation for upgrading software, security camera placement, designing and diagraming a campus-wide security system to achieve your security goals and maintain the continued safety of your students, teachers, staff and parents.

Putting into place the proper physical security measures can mitigate external threats and reduce the amount of harm inflicted if incidents and security breaches do occur. Conducting a site assessment and developing building security plans by our school security experts can identify existing vulnerabilities and enhance overall school security.

Security Strategies to Consider

  1. Involving district and community partners in the site assessment is important, including local law enforcement or other experts.
  2. Conduct security site assessments annually.
  3. Integrate the results of a site assessment into the school’s campus-wide Emergency Operations Plan.
  4. Conduct additional security assessments at external sites outside of school buildings, such as sporting venues, common areas, parking lots, school bus storage or staging areas, or transportation routes near or leading to the school.
