Security director explains how phone system keeps Randolph safe

Kris Irwin, our director of safety and security, recently stepped in front of the camera to talk about one piece of technology that helps keep Randolph College safe: Talk-A-Phone call boxes.

The College has more than 30 call boxes that allow people to get assistance from the campus security team. Pushing a button on the boxes activates a strobe light and immediately opens an audio connection to the reception desk. A communication officer can then send a security officer to provide assistance as needed.

Watch the video below to hear Irwin talk about how the phones help people feel more secure.

Did you know some of Randolph College’s security officers have emergency medical technician training?
