Tagging or identifying any visiting person or vehicles used by visitors should not be unnecessarily complicated. Tagging is often a simple matter of having the relevant items at hand at security gates or posts for handing out to those who do not usually visit a place. Any establishment secures its installations with IDs so that only authorized persons could get in.
Schools, for instance are in constant need of good ID systems or products. Some basic items will include visitor stickers which are made by a number of wholesale manufacturers and marketed throughout the country. The best, most recognized or experienced ones could work with large factories out there.
These are often outfits that have been around for a long time. Focusing on identification badges and cornering some markets for items that have come and gone. These innovate or provide basic things like the sticker badges for use by visitors. These could be printed on a combination of paper or vinyl with an adhesive backing covered by a piece of paper when new.
Using one is simply a matter of taking off the backing and sticking the adhesive side on a surface. This could be on a laminated ID card, since the stickers could be useful for a certain period of time. For schools this means a semester or a school year, and the stickers are changed periodically in this way.
The companies providing these products could process these in thousands per order, or as many as needed. Schools could order them in bulk and save a lot, except that a number will probably be left over every semester. The thing is that there is no projected number of visitors that could pass through the school portals at any given semester.
The sticker ID system thus provides some measure of security to schools. They often want protection against illegal entries, against persons of interest in the law enforcement category and also keep out anyone who wants to disturb the academic process. The stickers will be worn by any visitor for the time that he or she is in the campus.
Campuses are the most peaceful of settings but it takes a good security force to protect it. This unit will often dispense the IDs for visitors, and depending on what they think is good, they may not issue one to those they suspect of some malicious intent. But then there is no telling which visitor has any and more processes need to be factored in.
For instance, checking bags or baggage or car trunks could be used. But schools, despite their security needs, are not classified as high risk environments even as a number of shootings have happened in school premises around the country. Thus the kind of checking process recommended may be done when or after an emergency occurs.
And the personnel manning the defensive or security perimeters may need help from sheriff or county police officers. The stickers are simply a means of monitoring and tagging so that one dimension of concerns in this sense is addressed. It also helps make the visitor recognizable and welcome in the campus.
