An educational institution’s security mandate is to promote a safe and welcoming environment that recognises and is respectful of the diverse nature of its community. Promoting this type of environment is a challenging task.
Typically, a university campus is akin to a small town with a vast range of buildings, lecture theatres, classrooms, laboratories, recreational spaces, workshops, car parks, access roads, pedestrian walkways and sprawling accommodation blocks, many of which are accessible round the clock. Young people and a relaxed atmosphere – along with late-night activity – make easy pickings for expensive hardware, vulnerable individuals, bullying, and false allegations.
A university is often a young person’s first environment following the safety of the parental home, and safety will often be an important factor in choosing an establishment. At 2020 Vision we understand the increasing necessity for schools and universities to be able to provide the best possible security, both to tackle real problems of danger and to reassure staff, pupils, students and parents that security measures are in place to mitigate the risks from a vast variety of threats including assault, vandalism and theft.
Universities and schools require solutions targeted specifically for their own unique environment. This is especially true now that universities are frequently open 24 hours a day. They must protect current investments and ensure smooth changes using up-to-date technology. Partnering with a security provider that understands the importance of campus safety is crucial.
2020 Vision is an acknowledged and experienced security systems specialist, well known for implementing some of the best university CCTV systems in the UK.
