K-12 and Higher Education

Almost daily we see and hear about some type of violence that has occurred at a school or university. Despite the publicity and awareness generated from these acts of violence, they somehow continue to occur. Ensuring the safety of students, teachers, staff, and the general public at educational facilities requires a comprehensive approach to security that requires a thorough understanding of the potential risks and threats that are then addressed and mitigated through preventive, monitored, and reactive security measures.

As a leader in the electronic security industry, GC&E understands that a combination of these three security measures represents the best approach to providing a secure and safe learning environment. GC&E has been partnering with schools and higher education institutions for over 12 years to assess their risks and develop integrated security solutions that are customized to address their unique risks and threats.
