School crime is not a simple issue with a single solution. A balanced approach, incorporating well-integrated programs that make sense and are effective, is needed to address property crimes on school campuses. An integral part of such a balanced approach is a secure access control system to the facility and a high-level video surveillance network. However, security cameras, when and if they are in the right position to record events, cannot stop an actual crime, unless they include one critical element — real-time, interactive remote video and access control monitoring.
Most schools already have some sort of access control and video surveillance network in place. It is important that school administrators understand the solutions available to them to make their security investments as efficient as possible. When a critical event occurs, real-time, remote monitoring can help to proactively prevent an incident or actively assist police and other first responders on the scene.
