According to the US Department of Justice, there were 2,265 reported thefts per day in kindergarten through 12th grade schools during the 2007-08 school year - nearly half of all public schools reported one or more thefts. Students, staff and the schools are negatively impacted by these crimes when the tools they need for learning and instruction are taken. On many campuses, it is easy for anyone to walk into an unlocked classroom during the day and check out which rooms contain the most valuable saleable equipment, such as computers, printers and televisions. Many times, a person carrying a stolen computer could walk off campus unchallenged - even during normal school hours. 

With thorough planning and the help of basic access control measures as well as innovative technologies, a more secure school campus can be achieved.
