A networking group focused on “spearheading discussion about security and safety at educational facilities” has been launched to bring together school leaders and aligned stakeholders.
The new Campus Security Coalition says it will seek to assist schools over the next year by partnering with technology vendors and installers to provide the tools and services necessary to strengthen situational awareness and security efforts.
“If it takes a village to raise a child, it also takes a village to protect one. There’s a need in today’s market to help schools address security concerns by listening to what they need and offering advice for building a better security posture,” said Jumbi Edulbehram, regional president – Americas, Oncam. “As the educational landscape changes, so, too, should the technology used to protect these facilities. It’s important for manufacturers, integrators and end users to come together to discuss a more holistic approach to securing our schools.”
Individual membership in Campus Security Coalition is available to leaders with experience in school security or safety initiatives, individual schools and school districts, educational administrators, consultants, campus police and security leaders. Aligned technology and service providers can participate through a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities, both year-round and event-based.
