Making Schools Safer with Security Technology

To keep students safe, many schools are enacting additional safety measures that not only better secure their school, but help establish healthier environments for students, staff and visitors. It is never too late to consider adding new or upgraded security technologies to keep your people and children safe.

Incidents of school violence and the pandemic have drawn concern from parents and the community.  “In today’s uncertain landscape, we can all agree that keeping kids safe is a priority.,” says Jon Jackson, Vice President, Technology.
