Education Solutions: Security

Solutions for Education

Whether in a neighborhood school or across a large university campus, the surveillance needs of those in the education market are specific and acute. BTI understands the unique needs of education and provides megapixel technology to specifically meet those needs.

K-12 Schools

  • 85 percent of public schools record one or more incidents of violence, theft, or other crimes amounting to an estimated 2.0 million crimes each year.
  • Institutions must also provide safety and security for parking areas, concerts and athletic events.

Colleges and Universities

In 2009, one university alone had:

  • Theft of university property totaling $126,987
  • 432 incidents of theft or loss of personal property
    • Total loss $87,439
  • 39 burglaries totaling $38,104

A college or university is more than just a place to learn, it is a home for hundreds and more often thousands of people.

  • In 2009, there were almost 200 forcible sex offenses, 24 robberies, 85 aggravated assaults and over 1000 burglaries on college campuses.
  • Institutions must also provide safety and security for parking areas, concerts and athletic events.
