Incidents at schools are on the rise: During the 2017–2018 school year, 80% of public schools recorded that one or more incidents of violence, theft, and other crimes had taken place, amounting to 1.4 million incidents. Three of the four deadliest school shootings in our nation involved perpetrators who were not students or employees gaining unauthorized access to a campus.

A proactive response plan is critical, if an incident has happened it is already too late. It is imperative to monitor entry points at your school through integrated video security and access control. Which can help monitor and restrict the movement of people, assets or vehicles in, out and around your school.
