Back To School Safety Tips for Spy And Security Customers
It’s that time of year again! School administrators and security personnel have planned and worked hard to get our schools and campuses safe and ready for eager learners (and the not-so-eager). There are so many areas on campus to consider when thinking about safety and security for your school. It can quickly become overwhelming. That’s where we come in. KJB Security has been in the business of securing campuses for over 15 years now. We’re here to help!
Here are a few areas to remember and tools to consider adding to your school security plan.
Resources for school campus security
As campus security experts and school administrators, it’s your job to help alleviate fears and concerns and insure that students all across America will be safe. Today university and campuses are putting forth their best effort to make school safety a top priority and the statistics prove that it's working! We’d like to assist in those efforts by providing this resource: KJB Security’s top 4 security tools to add to your security plan in 2017
GPS Fleet tracking for school busses
The safety process for students doesn’t begin when they walk onto the campus. For many children, it begins when they walk (or hop) onto the school bus. We have 2 great security options for busses that will help you get those students to school safely.
iTrail Convoy GPS Tracking: The iTrail Convoy is a hard-wired, rugged, professional-grade vehicle tracker with a 12 hour back-up battery that offers alerts and live monitoring every 10 seconds. The iTrail Convoy can be completely covert after installation and you never have to worry about power.
Duel 720P Dash Camera: Our dual dash cam is the best on the market featuring a front facing and back facing camera in one body. It simultaneously captures the road ahead and the cabin in clear HD video. Use this top of the line Dual Recording Dash Camera to capture your drive for safety and insurance purposes.
Friendly safety reminders to share with parents and students
Unfortunately Americans still haven’t quite figured this one out: Always yield to pedestrians in crosswalks!! Especially young pedestrians walking to school. Often kids must walk to school alone and… (surprise) don’t always follow the rules. Take extra care to look out for children in school zones, playgrounds and parks, and residential areas.
No! You can’t beat the bus!! Plus, it is illegal in all 50 states to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. Unfortunately, we can all think of a time recently when you saw this happen. It’s amazing how many tragic stories like this one and this one we still read each year.
If you have young pedestrians who must walk to school alone, throw an iTrail Solo GPS Tracking device into their backpack when heading out the door. You will receive your child’s location update every 30 to 60 seconds via text message or email. And you can know when your tracker has left a specified area using our GeoFence alerts!

In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection
Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians
If you're driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car.
The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough back to allow them space to safely enter and exit the bus (NSC.org)
