Universities and colleges focus on the pursuit, preservation and dissemination of knowledge. College or university campuses can be complex environments, having all the elements of a small city. Campuses may consist of various buildings and housing, a library, eateries, a theatre, a stadium, parking facilities, and a vibrant population of students, staff, and visitors. We understand that most students who live on campus may not leave for weeks — if not months — especially in their first year.
Paragon combines our expertise in providing educational institutions with innovative public safety solutions, to give administrators quality and value that is measurable and brings peace of mind to the campus community. Educational institutions want campuses that are open, yet secure. They want a rich learning environment where everyone feels welcomed and diversity is respected. To achieve this, institutions need to not only nurture a culture of mutual respect, but also to ensure its protection through effective security services.
At Paragon, we have been providing exceptional security services to universities and colleges across Ontario for more than four decades and it remains a core focus. We have extensive experience and knowledge of this highly specialized market, unmatched by any other security company. We have developed and implemented solutions for libraries, residence halls, student centres, public spaces, and special events. This wealth of knowledge has enabled us to develop best practices which are continually refined and replicated across all our clients.
