SERVICES FOR A POST-SECONDARY ENVIRONMENT
Paladin provides campus security services for post-secondary institutions ranging from small satellite campuses to large, urban universities. We understand that each facility presents its own unique set of challenges and cultural features, and so our selection process is tailored to fit your institution with the right security team.
Securing millions of students across North America, we recognize that risk factors can vary depending upon location and type of post-secondary facility, as well as the layout and student body makeup. Our campus security services focus on open-structured buildings, parking services, student residences, vehicle threats, food and drink establishments, property theft risks, student misconduct, and campus property and trespasser threats. Our employees receive top security training to maintain a safe environment for staff, faculty, and visitors that supports student learning and development.
CAMPUS SECURITY SERVICES: ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Your post-secondary environment requires dedicated, well-trained professionals to provide safety and security to students, staff, and visitors while at your facilities. Campus security services are not one-size-fits-all when it comes to post-secondary institutions. The service you require could vary depending on your institution. We provide a wide array of campus security services training to our officers, including:
- Roving patrols, including bike and mobile patrol
- Event support (such as sporting, fairs, rallies, and cultural events)
- Drug and bomb detection
- Resolving special security issues, e.g., an active threat event
- Liaison with local law enforcement officials
- Emergency planning
- Knowledge of the Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
- Substance and alcohol abuse training
- Effective, clear, and considerate communication with faculty, staff, and students
- Full learning and understanding of campus law, policies, and procedures
SECURITY AND EMERGENCY PLANNING FOR POST-SECONDARY INSTITUTIONS
Whenever we begin a new contract, we conduct a comprehensive security risk assessment before initiating formal campus security services. This assessment is multi-focused, with an emphasis on crime data, facility and staff security concerns, facility layouts, and historical security concerns. This is one of the many ways we tailor our security services program to your institution.
OFFICERS WHO UNDERSTAND POST-SECONDARY SECURITY
Our esteemed screening, selection, and training processes ensure that every officer is trained and equipped to handle anything they might encounter while patrolling your facilities. From counter-terrorism training and prevention to events and activities, and even media training, our officers are prepared for any security situation that may arise at your institution with a customer service-focused approach. We understand that colleges and universities are places where students learn and make memories, and security should promote that environment. That is why our officers receive mental health first aid or ASSIST training to support rather than enforce.
British Columbia Institute of Technology is one of BC's largest post-secondary institutions in Vancouver that offers courses and programs in technology, trades, engineering, business, and health. Paladin offers campus security services for their facilities, focusing on building a symbiotic relationship with the institution.
Paladin invests in the training and the development of their Guards and ensures that there is a good two-way communication. They are responsive and collaborative and take a lot of pride in our relationship.
