Mitigate Risks

Keeping a tight rein on the day-in, day-out safety needs of a school district is a huge responsibility. Maintaining a thorough knowledge of exactly who is entering your schools and facilities, immediately recognizing potential threats, maintaining accurate records for full accountability — the importance of these actions to mitigating risk cannot be ignored.

School District Flags More Than Two Dozen Potentially Threatening Intruders

With the Raptor system, the district has successfully identified at least two dozen threatening individuals attempting to enter its schools, including several registered sex offenders and, more commonly, people attempting to violate restraining orders or flagged as dismissed former employees.

“Raptor gives our front office personnel an advantage in dealing with potentially dangerous visitors. Having the information built into the system makes a big difference. No more searching in a filing cabinet or trying to compare an unclear log entry to a printed, possibly out-of-date list. The badge stickers with the visitor’s picture—taken right from their driver’s license—are another big advantage. Students, teachers, and other staff members now have assurance that it’s OK for the visitor to be there."
