SecurAmerica operates on a high touch, responsive and customized business platform – specifically for the college and university setting – that provides visible and engaged security services while providing peace of mind to students, faculty and campus visitors. We know that our officers provide both a visible deterrent to portential criminal activity and serve as a very important customer service ambassador for students and visitors. We work closely with campus administration in creating a holistic security plan or supplementing existing public safety departments and efforts.
Our campus security program is tailored to the unique needs, threats/risks, nuances, student population and environment associated with the educational institution we are serving.
We specialize in the following services:
- Fixed and access control posts
- Student and faculty escort services
- Traffic control
- Campus event monitoring and security
- Security/safety patrols
- Alarm monitoring
- Facility system checks
- Securing/unsecuring labs, rooms, buildings
- Key control
- Student and faculty transporration shuttle service
- Campus resource officer
- Student crime prevention and awareness programming
For our university and college campus clients, we carefully recruit, screen and select our personnel based on the role they will play in the security program, their ability to work well in a university setting (specifically dealing effectively with students and faculty), their maturity and their ability to demonstrate the success factors that have been specifically developed for each position and shift.
Our campus (university and college)“culture match” process takes into account an officers’ personality, skill set, talents and interests and matches these with the unique requirements of the college/university campus setting we serve and each position to be staffed. Our recruiting sources include the military, law enforcement, educational and customer service fields.
SecurAmerica’s university style training programming is customized to the needs of each college and university client. Our learning pillars include student/faculty public relations and customer service; campus safety and security concepts, including rules enforcement; emergency preparedness (including active shooter) and response; and liability avoidance/risk management.
Our instructors are learning professionals who facilitate classroom teaching, interaction and testing in our state-of-the-art and fully staffed learning centers. Every officer assigned to a college or university client is “certified” as a Campus Security Professional (CSP). This certification process includes the use of customized OJT checklists, an initial post test, weekly evaluations during an officer’s first 30 days and a final certification examination.
