4 Benefits of Installing School Security Cameras in Bedfordshire

Schools are public buildings with a unique responsibility to protect the students in their care. School security cameras, or CCTV systems, are now being used extensively to maintain the safety and security of school premises. They help to keep unwanted visitors out and allow staff to concentrate on their work with their students.

School security cameras in Bedfordshire don’t just keep intruders at bay. As an established installer of school security systems, the 1st Choice team recognise at least 4 wider benefits for our clients.


1. CCTV Spots Bullying and Vandalism

It’s no longer possible for staff to have eyes on every part of the school premises. CCTV cameras can help by creating a network of cameras which eradicate ‘hidden’ or covert areas that may provide opportunities for bullies or vandals. 1st Choice security engineers can help by auditing your premises and recommending the areas that need cameras installed.

2. Keeping Intruders Out

Theft is a major problem in schools. There are 3 reasons for this; first, schools are a repository for all kinds of expensive equipment that thieves would like to get their hands on. Second, there’s plenty of ‘down time’ for school premises which intruders can take advantage of. Third, students are a great source of insider knowledge either intentionally, or not.

School security cameras are an effective deterrent to opportunistic intruders. Being caught and identified by CCTV is a level of risk which most petty thieves will avoid. If a burglary does take place, your security cameras provide a clear record of the event with an excellent chance of intruder identification.

3. Monitoring Visitors to the Site

Schools are busy community hubs and many of our clients are worried about how easy it is for unauthorised visitors to access the site. Security cameras installed as part of school door entry systems allow you to monitor everyone entering and leaving school premises. If you spot anyone acting suspiciously you can alert security staff immediately before they get into the school buildings.

4. Peace of Mind for Teachers

Teaching staff do an important job, and they deserve to feel secure and supported whilst on school premises. CCTV cameras offer them reassurance that the school is protected against unauthorised visitors. They can also provide evidence where misconduct claims are made and supply critical video imagery to support meetings with parents discussing pupil behaviour.

Professional Installation of Security Cameras

Many of the schools we work with are operating on limited budgets. This means that our school security system designs need to be optimised to ensure the very best value for money. 1st Choice engineers will carry out a free security audit of your premises, find the vulnerabilities and blind spots, and make best use of your budget to provide effective security. This many include security gates for your school, or a school alarm system.
