What Type Of Alarm System Do You Need To Secure Your School?

Posted by Joe Wilson

May 27, 2015 6:58:14 AM

School_VandalismWe all know that a safe and nurturing environment is a necessary foundation for education. 


Unfortunately schools, colleges and universities have become increasingly vulnerable to crime and violence and security breaches in schools do happen, both during class time and after hours. 


Currently in the US a school is three times more likely to be burglarized than a business, and vandalism costs to schools total more than $1 billion a year. Fortunately the numbers are far better here in Western Canada, but we still have to be aware that security is now part of our every day lives and that educators need to concentrate on teaching, not on how to make their environment safer. 


Here at Sonitrol we understand the unique challenges faced by public and private schools, universities, colleges and educational institutions. We specialize in providing innovative alarm systems and security solutions that secure public and private buildings, that will improve overall safety, and protect students, educators, and the general public.


We can help secure educational institutions with the best security systems available and stay within your budget. We offer protection against fire, theft, vandalism and unwanted visitors for your school with a fully integrated Sonitrol system. The cost of repairing vandalism by far outweighs the cost of the security systems that can prevent vandalism from happening.
