back-to school time to get safe

Its back to school time in New Jersey!! All over social media and the news channels, you see it’s back to school time. Going back to school should make your local schools do a check up on their security that they have in place to protect what truly matter most to all of us our children!

 

Today we are living in an uncertain world, and just sending our children off to school is scary. So, the question to ask here is, “how can we keep our children safe?”. It’s scary to think of all the safety measures that need to go into place today in our schools. The first lines of defense that all schools need to have today are locked doors with a buzz in system. These doors should have a camera pointing at the person at the door, along with an intercom system. With the buzz in system in place, a person at the door can state why they are there and actually show their ID before the doors are opened.
Cameras should be placed at each exterior entrance of the school as well, so the front desk can see who is moving around the outside of the school at all times. Next would be proper placement of cameras inside the school. Each hallway and stairwell needs to be protected. Cameras inside the schools keep your children protected on so many levels. They will protect your children from bullies, protect teachers from falsely being accused of something and can protect your child from a teacher that may not be treating your child right.
Many schools are now even adding cameras to the actual classrooms. This is often the proof to show parents how their child is behaving in the classroom, or proof of how a teacher may interact with your child. Cameras in the classroom often serve as not just protection for the child and the teacher, but as a way to go back and see how both teacher and child can improve in the future.
Keep in mind, no two schools are the same when choosing a company to install cameras and alarms to your schools. A company that offers a package is not really your best bet. You want to go with a company that will come to each and every school and does a safety audit to best meet the needs of each school. A school safety audit is something that should be done at least once a year to ensure all the systems are working properly and are still meeting your school’s needs. This audit of the school should not just be limited to security cameras and alarms in the school, it should also include every point of entry and door access protection. Another tool your school board can use when looking for the company that is going to install your security system is to look them up in the Better Business Bureau. You want to use a company that is BBB accredited so you can look back on the company’s track record. Keep in mind too, when choosing the company or any company that may work in your schools, be sure that the staff is all background checked.
