Safer Schools Initiative Launched

Safer Schools Initiative Launched!

APV has joined PASS (Partner Alliance for Safer Schools) as a Tier 1 partner. We are the only distributor in the country who has joined PASS at the Tier 1 level or higher.

As a Tier 1 partner, we are eligible for personalized training on the PASS Guidelines and their Safer Schools Checklist.

Our goal is to spread the message regarding a layered approach to school security as these buildings and campuses continue to become targets for nefarious activity.

Please contact Stuart Hallett if you would like more information on PASS or to arrange training for your team.

Employee Spotlight: Chuck Jeter

Chuck Jeter is one of our Mechanical End User Specialists covering Richmond and points east.

Decades of experience have made him the go-to guy when end users need help with doors.

When not solving door problems, Chuck spends a lot of time hunting, fishing, and playing with his grandchildren.

Cameras Become Weapons Detectors!

Historically, video cameras at facilities have mostly been used for forensic information-gathering or to try to figure out “what happened?”.

Today, AI software can be included in new cameras or added to existing cameras to provide real-time detection and tracking of intruders carrying weapons.

APV has partnered with two suppliers of this type of detection.

Omnilert provides a software add-on that integrates with most of the major manufacturers of security cameras.

Avigilon is a well-known camera manufacturer and has their own weapons detection feature.

Either choice will help protect people and save lives!

Good Luck in 2024. Let us know how we can help!
