Parking Lot Patrols
Ensuring that only students, faculty, staff, and authorized visitors are allowed on campus is crucial to the security of any school. For most campuses, this begins at their parking lots. Marked Spear Security vehicles regularly patrol parking areas on larger campuses, enforcing regulations, ensuring that any unauthorized vehicles or persons leave the premises, and ensuring the school’s legal authority to control its property is maintained.
For smaller, private parking areas, we staff gates and kiosks to screen all arriving vehicles. Our security personnel can check arrivals against lists of authorized visitors and personnel as needed.
Most unauthorized visits are innocent errors made by law-abiding people who quickly leave the premises. However, we are also able to ensure that anyone who is more persistent is calmly but firmly discouraged from attempting to gain entrance.
Monitoring the Property Point of Entrance
Spear Security personnel may staff entrances to halls and offices or other areas to create a visible presence while monitoring entrances and exits. When desired, they can also operate metal detectors and ask visitors to set aside keys and other metal items that may likely set off alarms. When alarms nevertheless go off, personnel can operate wanding equipment, ensuring any armed individuals are identified and removed from the premises.
Spear Security staff can also make sure that all doors are locked and the perimeter of the property is secured at the end of each workday.
Spear Security offers electronic video surveillance in buildings and parking lots to discourage and identify intruders such as petty thieves or youthful vandals. In some cases, we can also provide 24-hour remote monitoring that allows us to contact authorities if warranted or even inform would-be perpetrators that they are in violation and police have been notified.
Importantly, we keep tabs on ourselves as well. Spear Security employs touring technology that monitors personnel continuously to assure outstanding service and appropriate responses at all times.
A Safe and Pleasant Environment
Interpersonal conflicts are often inevitable but significant disruptions can be minimized or even bypassed completely. The Spear Security approach is marked by an emphasis on de-escalation tactics to ensure that minor issues are resolved quickly and amicably. Our team employs a low-key, diplomatic approach aimed at cooling down hot tempers while important rules and standards are enforced.
These tactics nearly always produce the desired effect. However, there are rare instances in which bad actors or individuals with mental health issues are too strongly motivated for even the most proven tactics to work. In these cases, our team is more than ready to employ a firm approach that nevertheless minimizes the use of force while ensuring the safety of everyone.
A Helpful Approach
Spear Security personnel are ready and able to help school operations in any way they can. This includes minor tasks that may not be directly related to security. For example, we can assist by answering simple questions for students and visitors, such as the locations of particular classrooms, offices, or restrooms. In this way, we can help save the time of staff members while simultaneously ensuring an appropriate atmosphere for learning.
