Campus Security

Educational institutions from K-12 to higher education are looking for ways to meet a range of student needs with ever dwindling funding. Parents want to know they are sending their students to a safe and secure learning environment. Teachers, coaches, bus drivers and security personnel want to more effectively oversee assemblies, sporting events and other school activities while maintenance staffs want to more efficiently manage day to day activities. And administrators want to ensure a rapid, coordinated response to any situation using technology that is within their budgets. 

The case for two-way radios 

A common thread that links these challenges together is the need for effective communication. Two-way radios help address rising safety concerns from the classroom to the bus stop to the football field. Whether drivers need to report a broken down vehicle, security needs to notify teachers of an emergency or maintenance needs to be reached for a broken water pipe, two-way radios help keep staff connected. 

Here’s how: 

Situational awareness 

Technology is becoming a crucial component in securing school campuses and increasing safety. Motorola two-way radios provide constant and reliable communications between teachers, staff, maintenance, the security team and school bus drivers, helping to head off potential threats and maintain heightened security throughout and around the campus. 

Increased campus safety & security 

Motorola radios provide a host of ways to increase security throughout the schools. 

• When disturbances or emergencies occur, teachers, bus drivers, crossing guards and coaches can take immediate action via the radios’ emergency call features to quickly alert a safety or security team. 

• Using MOTOTRBO radios, security staff can program radios to receive an alarm text message when an emergency door is opened, wherever they are throughout the coverage area.
