Security Guards, Patrols and Escorts

Our security and patrol officers are disciplined and adaptable, able to protect your campus from unauthorised persons and provide students with assistance in times of trouble. This physical presence will assist in preventing, detecting and deterring criminal activities. Our security guards are uniformed making them readily identifiable, meaning students in distress can easily find the support they require. Should they require, security personnel can escort students or staff on campus. Additionally, they are fully trained in first aid and can help students, staff or visitors in critical situations.

Access Control & CCTV Solutions

Best protecting your facilities involves more than boots on the ground. Leveraging secure technology is an important part of any security solution. Your facilities need to be secured from unauthorised personnel, especially after-hours. By installing a comprehensive access control system you’ll be able to control and track who is using classrooms, lecture halls and other facilities.

CCTV is an important component in both crime prevention and crime resolution. Strategically placed cameras can deter potential criminal threats from undertaking malicious or damaging activities against your property or students’ property. When properly managed it can also help resolve crimes that do occur, allowing you to better liaise with law enforcement to identify culprits.

Emergency Response Procedures

It is important that you protect your students, staff and visitors in critical situations. On campus any number of emergency situations can arise, depending on your facilities and campus layout:

  • Fires
  • Chemical spills
  • Gas leaks
  • Crowd control
  • Medical emergencies
  • Physical threats
  • Elevator outages

Being prepared for these situations is critical for the safety and peace of mind of everyone affiliated with your institution. We have the experience and capability to help you create plans for these, and other, potential emergency situations.
