Violence in South African schools has become a sizeable problem over the course of the last few years. The Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention recently conducted a study, which demonstrated that over 15% of school-going children, at both local primary and high schools, have experienced some form of violence while on campus. This violence often takes the form of threats, assault and robbery.
This, along with the ever-increasing drug problems in South African schools, is the reason why many principals, teachers and parents are calling for effective security solutions. Enter security services company RSS Security and our special school and campus security offering and corporate security solutions.
School and Campus Security in South Africa
RSS Security is one of the most trusted residential and corporate security companies out there. The school and campus security division at RSS Security is dedicated to optimising the safety of both learners and teachers within schools and universities across the country.
We improve school and campus security by placing highly trained guards strategically all around the premises, all the while implementing the following:
- CCTV Monitoring
- Access Control
- Regular Drug Searches
- Hiring Assistance
- Teacher Vetting
- Awareness Talks
Our focused and diligent security contractors, along with our speciality sniffer dogs, will work hard to keep school and university campuses not only safe, but also pleasant places to be. Paired with our awareness talks, learners and teachers will know all that they need to know in order to maximise their safety both on and off campus.
Furthermore, we have gone the extra mile in order to ensure that in the unlikely event that a violent episode does take place on the site, teachers and learners will have quick access to medical care. This is thanks to our partnership with ER24.
