Security Upgrades Installed at all Denver Public Schools

As all of our schools open for a new school year next week, our students, families and staff may notice some new security features that have been installed at all schools over the summer.

Thanks to the 2012 Bond, we’ve been hard at work upgrading the security systems on every single one of our campuses to ensure that every student is kept safe while at school.

The new features include identification badges for all employees, card readers in all schools and buildings, duress buttons in every school, state of the art lockdown notification abilities, and a new and improved detailed emergency procedure plan emphasizing the Standard Response Protocol.

The safety and security of our students is incredibly important, and with these upgrades, every school is better positioned to respond in the event of an emergency.

The Denver Police Department (DPD) is also an instrumental partner in DPS emergency response plan, actively participating in promoting school safety on a daily basis.

Thank you, Denver voters for your support of the 2012 Bond. Your support is helping us ensure every single one of our schools is a safe and secure learning environment.
