The Security Industry Association (SIA) has expressed strong support for Georgia’s SB 15, the Keeping Georgia’s Schools Safe Act, which authorizes public schools to request funding assistance from the state for facility safety improvements, including installation of security equipment such as video surveillance cameras, metal detectors, panic alarms, communications systems and access control systems.

In a letter to Georgia Sen. John Albers, SIA stressed the importance of modern, effective security infrastructure in any comprehensive school safety strategy and a commitment to promoting safe, secure school environments.
