Enhancing school security can provide a vital level of protection for students, faculty, and visitors. In that spirit, Convergint created its STEP Up initiative to help strengthen security in our schools. This program was launched during Convergint’s annual Social Responsibility Day. Convergint colleagues went out into their local communities and provided underserved schools with interior and exterior security systems installations, security upgrades, and security assessments.

“We hear a lot of talk in the news about what people want to do, or they think should be done, but we don’t hear very often of things actually being done.”

~Chris, Convergint Colleague 

Convergint is also providing a security checklist, available online to everyone,  that lists out all of the important elements to consider for school safety checks during the summer. 

This year Convergint’s STEP Up efforts included installing security cameras, cleaning and repairing exterior cameras, maintenance, beautification and other upgrades and professional analysis in eight schools in the following areas:

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Austin, TX
  • Chicago, IL
  • Cincinnati, OH
  • San Antonio, TX
