However, in some cases and locations, schools can benefit from an added layer of security to help reinforce this environment, and that’s where security guards can be an invaluable asset. These trained professionals are tasked with the responsibility of providing visible and actionable protection for students, staff and visitors on site. Here are just a few ways they help safeguard a school’s positive learning environment:
A school’s top priority will always be your children’s safety
When it comes to safety, schools should always be at the top of our priority list. Governments, school boards, leadership, and staff alike invest an incredible amount of time, energy and resources into creating a secure and encouraging environment for students to learn and grow without distraction.
1. Deter Crime
Security guards are often employed by the school’s administration as a deterrent against crime. This may be as simple as having someone on site at all times, or it may include a more active approach such as locking down doors, inspecting bags and monitoring cameras.
2. Monitor Activities
No matter where they’re needed, security officers can monitor activities in both indoor and outdoor settings and on grounds surrounding the school. They can also monitor any activity taking place on nearby streets or sidewalks that may affect the safety of students, staff and visitors.
3. Provide Peace of Mind for Parents
Parents must feel confident knowing that their children will arrive home safely from school each day. Employing security guards and communicating their presence with parents can help provide an added layer of confidence, especially if parents know they’re available to assist in various situations such as accompanying students to vehicles or monitoring any unusual activity in and around the school premises.

A big shout out to Zagame Security Group who went above and beyond for 'Feast on East'. They helped with crowd control, provide extra service when we needed it and supplying the most polite, easy to work with guards for the event. We appreciate all that you do and can't recommend you highly enough.
As a manager of a large security and technical company I have engaged Zagame Security Group to provide First Line Maintenance and Guarding for over 15 years. It’s been a long-standing relationship which I definitely appreciate. ZSG originally provided us services through their subsidiary East Gippsland Security covering a large area from Mallacoota to Warragul and then more recently ZSG proving us fulltime maintenance and guarding coverage in Melbourne 7 day a week, 365 days per year. During this time ZSG has provided us with outstanding service. Its really appreciated that when we needed some urgent attention or if we had an issue that we could just pick up the phone and talk directly to the owner or one of their supervisors to quickly resolve the issue at hand.
