The unexpected does occur and safety and security is a serious concern for administrators. The "Duty to Protect" has been well established in the Courts. Families and employees have an expectation that the institutions they trust will take proactive steps to provide a reasonably safe environment. In fact, under circumstances that may pose an unusual safety risk, administrators are obligated to go beyond mandates to develop and implement standards of care that create a reasonable environment of safety. Do "Pencil & Paper" Visitor Logs meet these standards?
Within seconds, a simply swipe of a visitor’s driver’s license, military ID or passport produces a full color, photo badge with name, entrance date/time and destination. Automatically check Sex Offender watchlists or other in-house flags. Easily set security clearance levels and group visitors as “Banned”, “Contractor”, “VIP” or others.
For example, if a man comes to your school and wishes to leave with a child, your school must have a fairly foolproof method to quickly determine if the man is indeed the legal father with rights to the child. How about Restraining Orders or special types of Custody arrangements? For example, if little Johnny lives with his father from Thurdsay at 6pm until Sunday, the father may not send a note to school and authorize a third party to pick up Johnny from school on Monday.
Does your receptionist or administrators have fast access to this critical information? Admittedly, you may feel that you need a law degree at times but being unprepared does not help. The added pressure of searching for legal documents or scrambling to find an administrator increases the odds of errors and bad decision making.
With Hi-TechID, a pop-up alert warns you when someone attempts to enter who's "Banned". A text or email alert is automatiically sent to Security or Administrators letting them know of a potential problem at the reception desk. Additionally, important documents are just one click away so eliminate any confusion.
