At Building Security Services, we believe each student campus should be a protected space for our children — a safe haven. A school environment should be dedicated to learning, teaching, development, and support, where a child’s achievements may be fostered rather than hindered.

BSS is committed to maintaining overall safety and security within our K-12 schools across the nation. To effectively combat threats, BSS created highly customized district-wide solutions with a student-centered approach to ensure the utmost effectiveness in an educational setting.

This resolution enables BSS to maintain an enriching atmosphere while also preserving the sanctity of a school environment.
