Private Schools

School children

Some of the projects that Citiloc takes the most pride in involve enhancing security at the facilities that nurture Canada’s brightest young minds. Our clients include some of Vancouver’s most prestigious private schools, including York House, West Point Grey Academy, St. John’s School, and King David High School.

Project Overview:

The diverse nature of a school’s facilities and activities exposes staff, students, and the building itself to a collection of internal and external security risks and concerns that include vandalism, bullying, harassment, earthquake / emergency preparedness, and even abductions. Citiloc offers a wide variety of security solutions to deal with these potential safety threats.

The first step is an assessment of the school’s facilities and premises to identify potential threats. This enables us to design the best security system for the institution by integrating appropriate features. Video surveillance ensures that movement through the premises is effectively monitored. Intrusion control systems will raise the alarm in the case of a security breach. Networked electronic lock systems allow the school to provide administration, teachers, maintenance staff, etc. with specific levels of access to suit their needs. This is especially important because of the variety of activities that take place at a school. For example, sports teams, drama clubs, and bands often require access to specific rooms during specific non-school hours but have no reason to be in other parts of the building.

In addition to protecting students and staff, this level of security control gives private schools the ability to increase their profitability by renting facilities to outside private or community organizations such as churches, sports teams, youth camps, and theatre groups. School administration can arrange for a given group to have access to their building and have the peace of mind of knowing that the organization will only have access to the specific areas at the appropriate time.

Citiloc is especially proud of the ongoing relationships that we forge with our private school clients. By offering maintenance contracts tailored to the needs of each individual school, Citiloc ensures that they will receive efficient service for any security-related issues that may arise.

Benefits of the system:

  • Increased profit potential
  • Improved security
  • Greater convenience
  • Enhanced income opportunities
