Safe Schools, Colleges & Universities Let's go! Home » Solutions » Safety Reimagined » Safe Schools, Colleges & Universities Safety Reimagined: Safe Schools, Colleges & Universities NEXT GENERATION SAFETY FOR THE NEXT GENERATION Schools and universities are meant to be places for safe teaching and learning, free from crime and violence. A place where the next generation can grow and learn. But this is only achievable with a foundation of safety. Everything starts with safety. It’s the core that holds educational centre operations together. Motorola Solutions have created the first and only end-to-end technology ecosystem that unifies voice, video, data and analytics in a single platform. Together this Safe Schools and Universities ecosystem provides you with the foundation of safety you need by addressing your unique challenges, from everyday incidents — a fight in a hallway, an allergic reaction in the restaurant or an injury in gym class — to extreme events, including intruders and emergency alarms. They’re also reimagining how the technologies used to help keep schools and universities safe can do even more — drive efficiencies and generate better outcomes. Because safety, efficiency and productivity are deeply interconnected. With the right technologies, you can be faster, smarter, more focused and more resilient — better at everything you do. When technologies communicate and learn from each other, safety and performance improves across your entire facility. Intelligence advances outwards, giving you eyes and ears where you’ve never had them before. Information flows where it’s needed — from cameras, to radios, to smart devices, to security operations centres — and what you need to know is made clear. People collaborate in more personalized and productive ways, using any network or device they want. Fairness and accuracy replace biases and blind spots. Resiliency increases and decisions improve. Motorola Solutions’ Safety Reimagined Safe Schools and Universities technologies come together to efficiently keep students and staff secure, providing the certainty of safety you need. Bridging the gap in areas of risk, which often thrive in the unknown and the unseen. Helping you not only respond and manage both the everyday and the critical emergencies, but also recognise patterns, anticipate actions and help prevent situations from becoming major incidents. Reassuring everyone who comes through your doors that potential threats can be identified and resolved before they escalate. Ensuring that if the unthinkable happens, there are plans and technology in place to respond as quickly as possible. THE PROMISE OF A MODERN SCHOOL, COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY SAFETY AND SECURITY Parents expect schools, colleges & universities to return their children back safely each day and staff need to feel secure to deliver on their jobs. QUALITY EDUCATION Ensure that all students have equal opportunities for the best education possible. EFFICIENT USE OF BUDGET Ensure operations are as efficient as possible to maximize annual budgets.

From overseeing building entries, controlling student and visitor activity, and monitoring access, detection plays a critical role in minimising potential threats. Integrated video security monitors and identifies unusual activity and potential intruders across campus. Automatic license plate recognition analyses vehicles entering and exiting campus — detecting and reporting suspicious vehicles on school or university property. Building entry management provides access control, automates lockdowns and pushes notifications of potential entry breaches to your response team’s radios. All of this comes together to improve your situational awareness and help increase early risk detection. Learn More ANALYSE Every day, you’re responsible for monitoring a large campus to maintain the safety of hundreds of students. Searching through the collected data in order to recognise concerning behaviours on and around campus is a demanding task. Video analytics detect potentially suspicious activity on your property, providing real-time insights into campus movements. Appearance searches quickly and seamlessly explore video footage and locate students and visitors through physical descriptions, allowing easy identification. Unusual motion detection reveals atypical events which need investigating. Ultimately, these insights enable proactive monitoring and management across campus — enabling you to respond to suspicious behaviour before an incident occurs. Learn More COMMUNICATE Whether it’s a routine fire drill, a sudden food fight in the restaurant or an emergency situation, clear and timely communication is key to creating a connected and protected campus. Communications — including radios and LTE devices — instantly and reliably connect your security, administration, bus drivers and staff. Radio alerts ensure key personnel are informed of critical alerts. Mass notification enables you to send critical information to faculty, staff, students and guardians quickly and easily, keeping the community aware of campus activity. Connectivity — both on and off campus — is an important part of creating a safe and collaborative educational environment where you and your team are always aware. Learn More RESPOND Whether it’s an everyday situation or an emergency, being ready and aware can make a critical difference. Having a comprehensive communications and action plan that can be seamlessly activated ensures your personnel are able to respond calmly and effectively with minimal disruptions to the learning environment. Emergency connectivity ensures instant access to your local law enforcement agency for immediate notification and effective engagement of emergency response teams. Mission-critical devices provide interoperability and seamless communications when you need it most. Real-time intelligence shares alerts and live video feeds with campus personnel and public safety, enabling a coordinated and informed response and providing eyes on the scene for your staff and local responders. Because enabling rapid response and documenting past incidents can be the key to preventing incidents from becoming tragedies.

Customer Reviews “We’ve had a few instances where students did not arrive home on the bus. With the search feature, we were able to easily track the student and determine if they rode home or walked that day. It cut our search time immeasurably and allowed us to follow-up with the parents quickly." 5 Brian Knight, Principal of Southport High School “The system has significantly increased the security of our large building. Coverage of 20 access points to our building is an enormous task for our administrative team. We now have access to respond to all breaches in a moment’s notice. In the past, we may or may not have even known our exterior doors had been breached.” 5 Kert Boedicker, Principal of Perry Meridian High School “We can now search camera feeds in just a few clicks. The time saved helps us respond to or gather information regarding incidents in a much more efficient and timely manner. This technology allows us to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to school safety.” 5 Lucas Klipsch, Assistant Principal of Perry Meridian High School “When it comes to the safety of our students, we could not have the reliability of our communications system in question. We needed equipment in place that could be counted on during any event, at any time of day.” 5 Ted Birren, Director of Operations, District 214 SAFE SCHOOLS VIDEO DOWNLOADS Safe Schools & Universities Solution Brief Download PERIMETER BREACH Use Case Download AGGRESSIVE INTRUDER Use Case Download SAFE STUDENT RETURN Use Case Download CONTACT DTS Name* Company* Telephone* Email* How can we help?
