A school should be a place of learning, but because of the seemingly endless number of tragic events on school campuses, school administrators have to devote more and more time and resources to keep students safe.
Schools have implemented a number of safety measures—fencing around the school perimeter, locked gates during school hours, visitor check-in requirements and regular emergency preparedness drills for students, teachers and staff. Another important addition is security guards.
Security Guards’ Role On Campus
While administrators and teachers need to keep an eye out for everything from student misbehavior to external threats, it’s not their primary job. School security guards act as a campus’ eyes and ears.
