Cleveland Diocese Installs 'Smart School' Security To Protect Students

Tattletale Technology and Monitoring revolutionize school safety

Online PR News – 19-February-2014 – Westerville, Ohio – One school in Cleveland is taking every step possible for increased security on and off of school grounds. In the wake of recent violence and school shootings across the country, St. Albert the Great applied for and won a $30,000 grant from the Cleveland Diocese for additional security measures. Including additional updates to their security, the school now has one of the most advanced systems for protecting students and staff alike. This includes giving a panic button to each adult in the building that can make immediate contact to first responders. Now the same technology that revolutionized commercial and home security is helping to protect schools against the unthinkable.

The tattletale panic button, sold exclusively through Argus Protective Solutions, is a handheld device that can be used to instantly activate the alarm through the all-wireless security dashboard software. At St. Albert, every staff member carries a tattletale panic button with them at all times. Using the device, any adult can instantly notify the police and school administration of an emergency in seconds. Once they arrive, authorities can use the assigned location of the panic button to locate the source of the alarm within the school. There is no faster way to get help in case of emergency.

St. Albert’s security upgrades also include a state-of-the-art entryway and two-way call buttons in all classrooms. For years the school had required that all doors remained locked during school hours. With its new fortified glass entryway, all visitors must enter through the front office. With this extra measure, the school has tighter control over its visitors in addition to their tattletale system.

“Our latest addition of the panic buttons and TT OneTouch emergency phones enhances all of our previous efforts regarding safety and security,” says St. Albert principal Edward Vittardi. “It provides ‘peace of mind’ in knowing that if the unthinkable happens, help can be notified and on the way in seconds.”
