College Campus Security

We Major in College Campus Security

No matter if your college or university is large or small; public or private; or located in an urban, suburban or rural setting; your primary security concern is making students, faculty, staff, visitors and parents feel welcome and safe. At the same time, you have a duty to keeping the campus operating, mitigating foreseeable risk and avoiding the damage that could occur to your brand and, potentially, your enrollment, if you don’t.
AlliedBarton understands these concerns through our many years of experience providing security services to colleges and universities across the country.  

The Right Security Officers for Your Campus

Security officers are often the first face of your institution’s brand. It is important for security officers to have the skills and personalities that fit their job responsibilities. We developed AlliedBarton|GatewaySM to help us match job candidates to openings for which they’re best suited. For colleges and universities, we recruit friendly, approachable people who enjoy working with the public and are attentive to detail so they can carry out the tasks of their posts and patrols. That way, you can be sure that our security officers will represent your school positively every time they encounter a member of your community.  

Whether providing a visitor with directions, assisting a professor with an office lock-out, checking identification or patrolling a building, AlliedBarton security officers are helpful, enthusiastic and professional. Close monitoring and supervision by our responsive management teams ensures that security officers are well-trained, and that knowledge is practiced and reinforced for consistency every time. We also expect our security officers to be alert and observant so they become engaged in the activities of the campus. This vigilance enables them to recognize the routine from the unexpected, and always know how to respond.
