These officials implement sophisticated security plans complete with access control, security personnel, and monitoring systems.

Chellenges. Access Control and Security. Schools and Universities.

The number one goal of college and university security teams is to keep students safe. But, college campuses are often porous and vulnerable to numerous types of threats from both internal and external sources. Further, security officers must deal with a very diverse environment of stakeholders; having to work with faculty, staff, students, community members, and administrators. In these diverse environment, universities must protect students and staff against internal threats like sexual assault and domestic violence. They must also take measures to deter external threats and like terrorist attacks and crime pouring in from the neighboring cities and towns. With campuses now reaching the size of small cities, controlling access into and out of a campuses facilities and providing adequate security creates a major challenge for university officials.

Because of the tens of thousands of students and faculty entering and exiting campus buildings all day long, many universities implement sophisticated access control systems. These systems often include turnstiles, card readers, and ADA handicap accessible gates. Most campuses implement optical turnstileswaist high turnstilesADA gates, or a combination of the three to keep intruders out and control the high flows of traffic at key buildings. Turnstiles for universities control traffic flow, process credentials, and prevent unauthorized entry autonomously. This frees up security officers and allows them to focus on other more important engagements.

More and more campuses are securing their dormitories with turnstiles because just having a door with a card swipe is not safe enough. Doors can be held or propped open, allowing more than one person access with one card swipe. This forces schools to employ someone at each dorm entrance to make sure only the right people gain access, which can become costly. Instead, dorm turnstiles do the work of a card swipe door and an attendant combined. They only allow access to one person at a time and lock right after that person goes through. Dorm turnstiles save schools money and minimize risk at their dormitory buildings.
