Highlands School DistrictSecurity OfficeSecurity at Highlands comprises dedicated men and women who help keep the Highlands School District running efficiently and effectively. Security's goals are to protect students and staff and promote a general safe atmosphere at all Highlands schools and facilities.
The security guards monitor the halls of the district's schools during the day, stand guard at sporting events, concerts, and musicals in the evening, or assist elderly and disabled students and residents whenever needed. The security guards also help prevent truancy and give students an avenue to divulge incidents of bullying, drug use and other illegal activities. Security also works hand in hand with the four municipal police departments to stay on top of what's going on in the community.
In emergency situations, security helps search for missing students or community children and assists with FEMA, PEMA, and the American Red Cross if the need arises.
