School security has been in the headlines in recent years due to incidents of high-profile school gun violence and bullying. The news has also reported excessive drug activity with new designer drugs. In order to protect our children from harm, school security guards are necessary. As children grow so do their behavioral and emotional problems and schools often become a dumping ground for undiagnosed and untreated students. These problems can manifest themselves as depression, lack of social skills, mischief or serious violence at school. As children enter their teens, behavior problems seem to either subside or intensify. Some teachers have actually said that they are afraid of some of their students. Teachers and administrators must have a lot of patience to deal with daily misconduct.

Our commitment to creating the safest possible environment has earned us a reputation for excellence and long-term client relationships. Our clients know they can depend on us to be proactive and highly professional. When it comes to protecting students and administrators in the schools, EPG Security Group’s security officers are at the top of their class.
