REDMOND, Wash. – Intercom manufacturer Aiphone has released “Best Practices for Keeping Students Safe: A Guide to Campus Security”, an eBook providing public and private K-12, college and university campus administrators with best practices for protecting campus populations.
The free 31-page eBook looks at current technologies, policies and procedures required to handle a variety of security challenges. It includes interactive checklists to prepare for new security projects and for choosing a security integrator.
