G4S Security Systems has expertise in providing security systems in the public sector for a wide variety of organizations and institutions from government departments through to hospitals and schools. They are also accredited by NACOSS, BSIA, EXOR and Constructionline who provide the assurance for its high standards. The need for security systems in school reflects the complex and expensive equipment that is now available to many pupils, in the form of computers and scientific equipment. It is for this reason that Haydock High School and Rainhill High School in Merseyside sought out the assistance of G4S Security Systems to supply high quality security systems to protect the city learning centers built on their premises. City Learning Centers are a key element of the Excellence in Cities program. Located in the main on secondary school sites, they provide state of the art ICT-based learning opportunities for pupils at a network of local schools and for the wider community. Their importance not just to one school but to a network of schools and the community beyond means that protecting them is vital because of the educational opportunities lost to the pupils if the equipment was unavailable. G4S Security Systems has supplied a sophisticated integrated system incorporating access control, CCTV, and an intruder alarm system that will help protect these invaluable educational assets.
