High Security Measures for College Campus Safety

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Though it often seems as though they are off in their own little bubble separate from the rest of the world, the fact of the matter is that college campuses are just as susceptible to experiencing crime as anywhere else. From car theft to robbery to aggravated assault and more, campus crime rates can be worrisome to students, faculty, and parents alike. In order to ensure college campus safety, it may be necessary to employ certain high security measures. Hercules Fence has the best suggestions for campus security:

When it comes to areas that are more or less open to public streets, such as perimeter sidewalks and campus lawns, consider the advantages of an anti-climb fence. An anti-climb fence is a subtle way of incorporating high security measures into your college campus; it can be made to look ornamental while still being very effective at keeping out intruders. An ornamental anti-climb fence will have an angled section at the top of the posts to discourage scaling. For decorative and practical value, there is no better choice.

For the safety of your students, consider installing crash-rated bollards along main walkways. Because of their size, people can easily assume a campus walkway is meant for vehicle traffic. However, if a walkway is meant to be restricted to pedestrian traffic for the majority of the time, then it is essential you are able to enforce this. Crash-rated bollards keep out vehicle traffic while allowing for foot traffic to go through, and they can be removed or retracted to allow vehicle traffic only when necessary.
