Protection 1 is a national leader when it comes to delivering comprehensive security solutions for educational facilities. We take a proactive approach to evaluate your threats and then execute a highly effective school security program designed to protect students, faculty, administrators, visitors and physical assets.
The risks facing schools, both public and private, include bullying, weapons, drugs, vandalism, staff and student harassment, property theft and gang activity. The need to increase public confidence and relieve parental concerns must be balanced with declining budgets, aging schools and increasing random acts of violence within the school setting.

Intrusion Detection and Notification
Intrusion systems provide status notification of entry points to your buildings, including doors, windows and loading docks. Our Integrated Systems division can customize integration features between your security systems, giving campus police, facility personnel and dispatch a complete picture of your security status—while simplifying the use and management of all systems utilized. Integrating user credentialing data between the systems will ensure those being allowed access into an area have the power to disarm your intrusion system and unlock a control point in a specific area.
Fire and Life Safety
Fire and life safety systems are necessary to preserve life safety of people on your school grounds. We integrate these systems with burglar alarms and access control systems to help ensure that life safety is not jeopardized and local fire code compliance is being maintained.
Access Control and Visitor Management
Access control systems can help you protect your entrances by preventing unauthorized persons from entering your school buildings while notifying system users of any suspicious activity. From invalid access requests to propping doors open, your educational facility’s security personnel will be able to leverage your access control system investment by providing key actionable information. You can also guard against theft by restricting access to areas that store assets such as computers and A/V equipment, student records, athletic equipment and supplies.
Visitor management systems can help deter unwanted persons from entering a school by identifying and logging visitors, volunteers, employees and vendors as they enter and exit your building.
Video cameras can monitor areas within your facility, such as common areas, offices, laboratories, hallways, locker areas, stairwells and cafeterias. Exterior cameras can monitor all building perimeters, fences and gates, parking lots and storage facilities. In the event of criminal incidents such as theft, vandalism or drug activity, video documentation can be used to identify suspects. When you take an integrated approach to video surveillance, your personnel will be able to quickly identify suspicious activity by employing information-sharing between access control and camera systems.
