School violence, hijackings, burglaries and drug peddling are massive problems in South Africa – and they are continuing to worsen. According to a study conducted by the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention, over 1 million learners across the country stated that they had experienced violence in the last year while on school grounds.
Furthermore, according to stats released in 2018, 57,9% of primary school learners who were tested for drugs tested positive and 72,9% of high school learners who were tested for drugs, tested positive.
How RSS Security Strives to Find a Solution
With the above in mind, RSS Security has recently opened a School & Campus division, which strives to improve safety at schools and universities. This was done not only with the learners in mind, but also the teachers.
Our security-related services in this division include the placement of highly trained guards all around the premises. The following specialist services are also included:
- CCTV Monitoring
- Access Control
- Drug Searches
- The Hiring of Assistant and/or Teacher Vetting
- Awareness Talks
Thanks to a close partnership with ER24, we are also able to ensure that all children, staﬀ and visitors receive priority treatment in the event of a medical emergency. Ultimately, we employ the latest technology and train our personnel in all aspects of security in order to be able to offer an all-in-one solution for safer schools in South Africa. We even boast a team of speciality sniffer dogs who have the ability to sniff out drugs in practically any circumstance.
All of this is sure to grant peace of mind to the parents, the teachers, principals and, of course, the learners themselves.
If you would like to learn more about this service or the new division in general, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team.
