Educational / Institutional

Administrators of colleges, libraries and other institutional facilities serving the public often face conflicting demands in regard to security.

The physical design and philosophical nature of many institutions require that public access be easy and convenient, yet at the same time the safety and security of staff, students, visitors and physical facilities are also critical concerns.

In this type of environment, a security program must be physically visible and psychologically deterring, while at the same time sensitive to public perceptions. For security personnel to perform effectively in such an environment, they must exhibit excellent interpersonal skills, critical observation abilities, keen judgment and a professional appearance.

At OSS, we understand the problems and provide security programs and personnel that answer the conflicting demands of institutional security.
