Security officers can help colleges by protecting students, faculty, staff and even area residents from harm. Ideally, a college should be a peaceful safe haven for all, and students, in particular, shouldn’t have to worry about being violently attacked, right?
For those colleges who need to beef up their on and off campus security forces, consider working with LawDog Security of Chicago (773-233-5742) to supply extra security officers as needed.
Basically, college leadership should be concerned with safety as a main priority. Parents won’t send their kids to a school with a reputation for being unsafe. After all, parents worry about their kids– a lot– and they want to know the campus they’re sending their kids to has people looking out for their well-being. A college campus often becomes a “home away from home,” and when dad or mom isn’t there to protect their child, they will feel more comfortable knowing security officers are there, watching over everyday events.
People need to have a sense of security in order to live a normal life. If people are scared to come on campus for any reason, they cannot complete their goals there! If anything, they’ll stay away, and that’s not good. Having security officers patrol college grounds helps give people peace-of-mind. Just in case something bad happens, it’s good to know there are people to turn to for help when necessary.
The very presence of security officers on college campuses helps prevent violence, assaults, sexual harassment, thefts, etc. People tend to be on their best behavior when they know they’re being watched (by security officers) and there’s the potential to face negative consequences (such as jail time or expulsion) if they do wrong and are caught! Meanwhile, security can “step in” when there’s tension rising between people or groups on campus and help quell the conflict(s).
Security officers on campus can always call for back-up and/or law enforcement officers as needed. For more information about college campus security in Chicago, contact us.
