Body Worn Cameras Support School Security

By Two Way Radio Gear

When it comes to visibility and supervision, independent schools have all wrestled with the same disadvantage: No teacher, administrator, or security professional could be everywhere at once. This was the case until the advent of Body Worn Cameras. When your school makes the commitment to outfit its faculty and staff with Body Worn cameras, you are making a substantial investment toward campus safety. Body Worn Cameras allow teachers to have a separate set of eyes always viewing their students. For independent schools employing security professionals, Body Worn Cameras capture indisputable evidence of student behavior as well as corrective actions taken to redirect the students. These devices can also serve as training tools for administrators to review the effectiveness of classroom management, disciplinary measures, and adherence to the curriculum. Whether students are taken off-campus for a field trip or taken outdoors for recess, Body Worn Cameras can ensure they are never without constant supervision.

Why should your school use Body Worn Cameras?

  • Creates an unbreakable link between teachers, aides, administrators, and security staff
  • Helps to maintain visitor/authorized personnel protocols
  • Can help to identify harmful situations before there is an issue
  • Captures clear, indisputable evidence to submit for law enforcement/legal entities
  • Can act as an independent witness in parent/teacher/faculty meetings
  • Promotes an understanding of proactive safety, reassuring parents of students

Take security a step further.

With Body Worn Cameras, you no longer have to question what happened during an incident. The evidence is there in plain sight. Most Body Worn Cameras are equipped with technology that can store and record many hours of video and audio and can integrate with CCTV to make sure that you can see every angle of an incident.
