Allied Universal helps schools, universities Highly advanced safety protocols for upcoming academic year

SANTA ANA, Calif.—As educational leaders continue the challenging conversation about what the new normal will look like for students across the nation, Allied Universal is helping school administrators and campus safety departments plan and prepare for students returning to school. Allied Universal’s more than 7,500 campus security professionals safeguard nearly 700 schools/universities nationwide. 

“Institutional stakeholders are asking questions about what the ‘new normal’ will look like for our students, while at the same time, our educational leaders are balancing budgets and dealing with lay-offs and staffing decisions and continuing to provide a high-quality academic experience for students across the country,” Stephen R. Aborn, director of higher education at Allied Universal, said in the announcement. “We are here to support and offer a variety of solutions to keep all school campuses save during the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

Over the last several months, Allied Universal’s K-12 and higher education experts have been sharing best practices, guidance and tools to help schools provide a safe and security environment for all students and faculty. This guidance includes: 

  • Support “no touch” entry into buildings, dissemination of personal protection equipment (PPE), disinfecting supplies and social distancing requirements to keep staff, students and parents safe;
  • Conduct distance temperature screening with a broad range of solutions such as handheld, fixed or semi-permanent thermal screening imaging, and robotic and kiosk screening technology;
  • Assist with traffic control, provide improved management of drop-offs and pick-ups, and support ingress/egress locations around school buildings;Â
  • Help mitigate further risks with advanced technologies such as Allied Universal’s HELIAUS platform, LiveSafe’s Mobile Safety and Security App, and access control and remote video monitoring solutions.

“We recognize the hard work of our education leaders and support their mission of furthering learning and education to all students in a safe environment,” Masha Karimi, education manager at Allied Universal, said. “It is our number one goal to provide our education partners with the safety resources and tools they need so they can focus on what they to best — to continue to teach and inspire our students.”
