Local authorities have a duty to serve their communities. This means making sure everyone in their area feels safe and secure in their daily lives, including when visiting public buildings and recreational facilities. Unfortunately, the security of public buildings is not often paid the attention it deserves. While these facilities may not contain many valuables, they are often full of sensitive information that must be protected.
Public spaces also need their own security solutions. While you will not need to protect from intruders, as the areas are open to all, you will need to make sure they are safe places where residents can travel freely and without fear. This means investing in security systems that will make sure your community doesn’t have to worry about crime and vandalism.
SECOM works with local authorities to ensure that people feel safe in their local community. This means creating bespoke security solutions that fit with each neighbourhood’s specific needs. Your public buildings and spaces will have their own unique quirks that make planning and designing their security systems difficult. However, we have plenty of experience in this field.
For your buildings, we have a range of intruder alarms that will keep people from breaking in or entering areas where sensitive information is kept. Similarly, we can outfit your facilities with door entry systems to control who is able to access certain rooms, enabling you to keep areas of your building as safe as possible.
In public spaces, you cannot control who travels through. However, you can easily monitor them remotely so that should anyone start committing a crime, you can respond immediately. Our CCTV solutions are designed for exactly this.
You might find that the mere presence of security systems in your public spaces will make your community safer, acting as a deterrent for people looking to commit any wrongdoings. However, you will need somebody monitoring things 24 hours a day – a service SECOM provides – just in case.
