Why Do Campuses Deploy Emergency Call Stations?

Emergency Call Stations

College campus safety is always in question, but there’s no doubting that emergency call stations help make them safer.

College campuses are unfortunately notorious for not always being the safest and most secure areas. While they house some of the best and brightest, there’s still a reason many parents fret about sending their child off to university. The good news is that many universities and campuses are investing a lot in their security infrastructure–from access control measures to emergency call stations. Today, we’re particularly interested in emergency call stations and how they can help bolster a campuses security measures.

Who Do They Target?

College crimes often happen in open spaces and, as a result, most criminals who operate in campus settings are considered to be opportunists trying to take advantage of someone not paying attention. Emergency call stations, usually that come equipped with a flashing strobe so it’s obvious to potential victims and criminals alike, are meant to target those open areas and parking lots where you may see bigger spikes in crime.

What Do They Do?

Emergency call phones are for areas where constant on-site surveillance simply isn’t an option but you still feel as though additional security measures are necessary. They connect the caller with security or police immediately, negating the need for them to figure out how to use their cellphone during a crisis. They’re also great for adding some extra light to darker areas and instilling a general sense of safety across a campus.
