Garden City, New York (PRWEB) April 24, 2014
Global Elite Group(GEG) a provider of physical security services to schools and universities since 2002, announces new programs to address vulnerabilities. “Threats to educational facilities have been an ongoing challenge for K-12 schools and college campuses. They share a common goal of keeping students safe however that is where the similarities end. Addressing a safe environment for all is the foundation of the new programs GEG has initiated,” explained William McGuire, President and CEO of Global Elite Group.
In order to meet the changing goals of a security program for educational facilities GEG begins with an analysis of what the needs are. “We analyze technology use, physical methods of preventing access and current procedures to address the threat environment each facility, campus and student body may face,” stated McGuire. It is not unusual to uncover lapses in areas that are often overlooked such as security doors, barriers, front door procedures, communications systems and the overall lock down and emergency plan. GEG will provide an overall assessment before making any recommendations, which includes the integration of technology and physical security practices.
At the center of GEG’s program is to provide school administrators with an overview of the basic issues facing their campuses, to make the environment safe from attacks and school shootings while also having a functional facility. “While this is contrary to the way schools are designed with open areas and people coming and going, it is possible to meet very high security standards ensuring the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors,” added McGuire. Schools also serve as a community resource often used as shelter during an emergency, a polling place and a meeting place for many groups, security cannot cut it off as a viable asset to the community it serves.
GEG provides an overview of best practices deployed successfully in many industries including educational facilities. Global’s staff brings together years of expertise in the security field to tailor a security solution specific to threat levels assessed. In addition to a physical security presence GEG findings may include recommending barrier perimeter systems, access control doors, establishing restricted areas, panic alarms and camera systems to monitor remote areas. The tools for keeping schools safe are many while at the same time keeping an open campus for all to enjoy.
