Haworth-Roberts, A., Ed.
Greater use of expensive equipment by schools has also increased the potential for vandalism and theft, giving an increased role to intruder alarm systems. This document provides guidance on the management and technical aspects of forming policies for installing and operating intruder alarm systems in educational buildings. Also provided are examples of good practice based on case studies. Appendices, comprising the bulk of the document, contain technical details of intruder alarm systems, including detection devices, auxiliary equipment, wire-free intruder alarm systems and portable alarms, intruder alarm system control panels, local audible and remote signaling alarms, and central monitoring stations. A glossary is also provided. (GR)
