It’s been an unusual school year — and now, many campuses will be vacated again for summer vacation. Empty school grounds are susceptible to all kinds of security risks, whether it’s students exploring the campus at night or breaking and entering by people with more malicious intentions. The relaxed tempo of summertime can be inviting for everyone from the curious to the criminal, so it’s definitely not the time of year to let school security slide. Even if school police stay on duty during the summer, schools need extra security.
Last year, summertime was the kickoff for months of violent crime in numerous cities. As summer of 2021 poses similar threats, law enforcement departments across the country are warning business owners to prepare for a second wave. The Wall Street Journal reports that as COVID restrictions begin easing and warm weather leads to more outdoor activity, police departments are readying for a potentially violent summer.

Here are some examples.
No matter what size they are or where they are located, houses of worship need to make security a high priority. From robbery, to defacement, to physical threats against members and leaders, churches and synagogues are particularly vulnerable to crime. Criminals don’t expect places of worship to have the same kind of security protection that businesses do; the good news is, your congregation can prove them wrong by being prepared.
Numerous security concerns have arisen for businesses over the past year, but there’s nothing new about the need to keep the doors locked.

But thankfully, modern security equipment integrates with your current security system so you can save money while getting the latest in security technology.
