The safety of personnel is a top priority for law enforcement facilities. Intruder alarm systems can help protect staff and officers by providing an immediate warning of any potential threats or dangers.

Intruder alarms can also help protect sensitive information that is held in law enforcement facilities, by preventing unauthorised access. This is crucial because it can contain criminal records and evidence.

Most law enforcement facilities will be required by law or regulation to have an intruder alarm system installed. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in fines or other penalties.

Our intruder alarm installation, maintenance, and monitoring services can ensure your facility is always secure and protected, whilst complying with all regulations. 

Law enforcement facilities require the installation of affray and panic alarms to enhance safety and security, comply with regulations, and provide a quick response to emergency situations.

Affray alarms are typically used in detention centres or correctional facilities to alert staff of a physical altercation or fight between inmates. These alarms can help officers respond quickly to the situation and prevent it from escalating. Affray alarms can also provide evidence in case an investigation or legal action is necessary.

Panic alarms are designed to be used in emergency situations where someone needs immediate help. For law enforcement facilities, panic alarms may be installed in areas where staff are at risk of being attacked or threatened, such as interview rooms or reception areas.

Some law enforcement facilities may be required by law or regulation to have affray and/or panic alarms installed. These regulations are often in place to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and inmates.

ClearView can install, maintain, and monitor your facilities array and panic alarms to ensure maximum protection and compliance. 

Access control systems are a crucial element of security within law enforcement facilities. They help prevent unauthorised access, protect assets, comply with regulations, provide accountability, and aid in emergency response. The specific access control systems that are essential in law enforcement facilities may vary depending on the facility’s needs and circumstances. ClearView will assess your facility and help design you a complete security solution. 

Access control solutions can include card readers, biometric readers, keypads, turnstiles, video surveillance, intercom, and much more. A combination of these access control systems can be used to provide effective security for law enforcement facilities, depending on the facility’s needs and the level of security required. 

ClearView can design, install, maintain, and monitor your access control systems for complete protection of your facility, staff, and assets.

Gate and barrier systems are essential for maintaining the security, safety, privacy, and control of law enforcement facilities, which are high-security areas that need to be protected from unauthorised access. Gate and barrier systems help to control who enters and exits the facility and prevent intruders from gaining access. 

All our commercial gate and barrier systems are fitted to regulated industry standards for the highest level of security. We provide supply, installation and maintenance of a wide range of automated gates and barriers to suit the unique needs and requirements of your law enforcement facilities.
