Latin American universities, forced to invest in security

International. Universities around the world invest in security systems. For example, the utah valley university wellness center implemented three optical turnstiles to have strict control over the people who enter.

Incidents of all kinds (vandalism, robberies and personal assaults, etc.) have occurred in institutions of higher education around the world and Latin America is no exception. In a famous university in Colombia, one of the oldest in that country, cases of theft of institutional computer equipment had a negative impact on the finances of the educational entity, so that university chose to improve its public access control systems.

Due to similar situations, other universities have decided to invest in security solutions that allow them to avoid risky episodes and react effectively and quickly when they arise. Such is the case of Tecnológico de Monterrey, an institution that implemented the Safe Campus Program, which includes a pedestrian and vehicular access control system, entry control for visitors, suppliers and contractors, access control to departments and buildings where necessary, access surveillance and facilities through point guards and special security at social events, sports, cultural and institutional organized by student associations, departments or by the campus.

Likewise, the University of Panama – the oldest and most recognized in the country – has been investing approximately 3 million dollars in a security system that includes dozens of video surveillance cameras. Also in Argentina, this equipment has been installed in different higher education institutions in the country. 

Such is the interest of Latin American nations to safeguard their educational institutions that in May of last year they joined the international declaration for safe schools, since the attacks on these schools (both basic and middle education, as well as higher) have caused thousands of people to have to deprive themselves of education. The countries of Latin America and the Caribbean that signed this manifesto – of which 40 countries of the world are part – were Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama and Uruguay.
