GE Security in action
GE is committed to partnering with educators to help keep
schools safe and drug free by
providing advanced solutions at a
reasonable cost. We believe it is
possible to dedicate your limited

greater system-wide efficiency,
and more powerful reporting capabilities.

manage. Shared monitoring and
control functions paint a more
vivid picture of events as they
occur. It better equips responders
with the information they need
for quick and effective action. And
when school safety and security
are on the line, action is one thing
that can’t risk a failing grade. After
all, helping children become more
successful learn­ers by creating
safe and drug-free schools is a
task worth mastering.
