Creating safe educational environments where learning is developed and enhanced is extremely important and viewed by many as a basic human right. Each instance of violence involving weapons raises new concerns about the need for effective measures to ensure that our children, teachers and assistants can focus on the importance of education and go about their lives in a safe environment as possible. Installing a Metal Detector whether temporary or permanent is both a physical and optical deterrent and demonstrates a desire to reduce weapon violence.
In the last 12 months Scanguardian have installed in Sixth Form Colleges and Social (Youth & Homeless) Centres and the response has been instant. It has improved safety of the said environments for those who use them as well as giving much needed peace of mind to staff in these locations.
In the case of the Homeless shelter we installed, this was also done with a higher profile with Local Police endorsement and with necessary local media attention to drive home the need that in learning and rehabilitation areas safety of those using is paramount.
