Challenges Facing School Security Systems

One of the biggest challenges Chicago area schools face today is the need to provide an environment that is both safe and conducive to learning. This can be difficult considering the range of security incidents and challenges they face, including bullying, fights, graffiti, theft and more. Controlling who can enter a school and monitoring the goings-on within a building or campus are paramount to providing a safe, secure environment from the outer perimeter to the classroom. At the same time, this must be accomplished in a way that doesn’t make people feel as if they are in prison.

Further complicating matters are the inevitable budgetary constraints that force schools to do more with less. At the same time, schools are being asked to do more with less because of ever-decreasing budgets.
