EDUCATIONAL PROTECTION SERVICES
No parent should ever have to wonder whether their children are safe at school. Protecting schools is about finding a happy medium between keeping people safe and facilities secured while still being open and accessible to its vulnerable student population. PalAmerican and our school security officers (SSOs) understand how to maintain this balance and keep your institution running safely.

The PalAmerican Difference lies in our ability to train our officers to provide an exceptional security presence while also helping students, teachers, and staff feel safe and protected. We achieve this thanks to friendly officers who receive the industry’s best training to help them carry out their duties properly and confidently.
In addition to our standard security training — which is typically 2-3 times longer and more extensive than our competitors — our officers are trained in areas specific to education and minors. This can include working with special education youth, supervising after-school functions, and drug and bomb detection.
Before assigning security personnel to your school, PalAmerican conducts a risk assessment that evaluates several safety and security key factors:
- School location relative to surrounding crime demographics
- School community relationships and impact on school safety
- School security staffing, posts, and post orders
- Physical security measures (i.e. cameras, detection equipment)
- Staff and student security concerns
- Gangs and gang-related behavior
At PalAmerican Security, we take the time to understand the security challenges you face and help you develop an integrated program customized to address your individual situation. Contact us today to discuss your specific security requirements.
