Safety & Security

Both PRCA Campuses are patrolled by armed security during the school day and at after school events.  Patrols are done on foot and in vehicles.  The campus is monitored 24/7 onsite and remotely by the myriad of cameras that are in place.  

PRCA maintains a close working relationship with local jurisdictions including the Oro Valley Police Department and Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

Top 10 proven strategies that help thwart school violence
School safety pros know that there’s a lot to be learned from close calls at other schools. Here’s the latest info on averted acts of school violence.  51 incidents were analyzed and a case study was compiled of those results.  Schools could select multiple security measures from the list.
Here’s what was used most often when acts of violence were averted:
  1. Security officers or SROs in schools (58.8%)
  2. Security cameras used to monitor schools (27.4%)
  3. Controlled access to buildings during school hours (17.6%)
  4. Visitors required to sign in (15.7%)
  5. Controlled access to school grounds during school hours (13.7%)
  6. Visitors required to wear badges or ID (13.7%)
  7. Other, which respondents clarified as lockdowns, lockouts and mass notification systems (11.8%)
  8. School staff monitoring hallways (11.8%)
  9. Locked entrance and exit doors (9.8%)
  10. Locker checks (9.8%)
No schools in the database used metal detectors as part of their security procedures, researchers noted.
