Hemet Unified School District Becomes a Trailblazer for School Security in California with Evolv
When Dr. Christi Barrett was selected as Superintendent of HUSD in 2016, one of the first things she did was to form an official Security Department. “This was just one of a number of security initiatives we have launched,” she explains. “The culture at Hemet is one where students are always at the center,” Barrett says.“We wanted to be proactive in how we screen anyone entering our schools,” she conveys. “But we had a lot of challenges with the metal detectors. The rate and pace at which students could come into the building weren’t manageable due to the volume and compressed timeline of students, staff, and visitors entering our schools each morning.” That's where Evolv came in. Through the implementation of the Express®, Hemet Unified School District was able to achieve the following:
- Helped create a safer environment for students, teachers, administrators, and staff
- Reduced lengthy security lines due to inefficiencies of walkthrough metal detectors
- Avoided security screening delays that resulted in students being tardy for first-period classes
