Private School Security

Prioritize Safety in Your Private School

Today’s private schools face unique challenges when it comes to ensuring the safety of students, staff, and visitors.

With increasing concerns surrounding school violence and active shootings, it is essential for private educational institutions, despite their smaller size and close-knit communities, to proactively address these threats.

Secom is dedicated to providing specialized and robust security solutions that respect the unique environment of your private school:


Custom alerts for smaller campuses ensure immediate response to breaches and/or unauthorized entry.


Advanced tech allows office staff to consistently manage campus entry points and those of affiliated buildings or facilities – particularly during pick-up, drop-off, and other busy times. Properly screen all visitors to know who is on campus, and when.


Advanced monitoring solutions, including AI-based firearm detection, keep tabs on the unique and occasionally non-traditional layouts of private school campuses.
