School Safety Services
ACMS School Safety Services supports student learning by assisting districts and schools in creating and promoting emotionally and physically safe schools for staff, students, and visitors. Our programs include Campus Aides, Campus Safety Aides and School Safety Patrol services. Our creed “Keeping Children Safe” is our primary mission and we are committed to going the extra mile to ensure students feel safe within the scope of our presence. Our School Safety programs function as a clearinghouse for information. We assist schools and community organizations in addressing school safety issues. We also provide safety tips to assist and support prevention, preparedness, mitigation, intervention, emergency response, and post-incident recovery programs.
Campus Safety Aides are specially trained professionals that possess a variety of safety certifications. They serve as an extra set of “eyes and ears” at every school campus. For instance, Safety Aides monitor the school for hazards, oversee and help manage visitors on campus, and assist with drop off and pick up traffic.
Campus Aides are warmhearted individuals that work closely with school personnel to supervise playtime and lunch activities. Our Campus Aides monitor student interaction, reinforce positive behavior, and cultivate a healthy environment. They are an extension of authority while also maintaining a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
School Safety Patrol
School Safety Patrolers help to monitor children as they travel to and from school by patrolling the parameter of the environment. They increase the level of accountability by ensuring students are not participating in outside activities during school hours. They also reinforce a presence of authority for the outside community and act as the “eyes and ears” for the local Police Department and City.
