Loosduinen Police and Rapid Response Consultations in ISH
Posted 07/11/2017 12:38
Last week and this Monday, we had representatives from the Loosduinen Police Force and the The Hague Rapid Response Team in the school building for an exchange of information. The purpose of the visit was for them to familiarise themselves with our premises so that they are better equipped to assist in the unlikely event of a school emergency.

Yesterday, one group of such a delegation was in our school, but several similar groups, will be visiting the school in the coming weeks.


Security Update: Security Foil Installed
Recently, we had a reinforced security foil installed in strategic places which ensures that the glass maintains a high level of resistance in the event of an attack. The security foils are recognised and verified by the certification issued by the Material Testing Agency as being the strongest films in the world - both in resisting burglary and in explosion protection. This is all part of our continuous efforts to improve the safety and security of students and staff in ISH.

Anti-ram Barrier Systems
Tomorrow we will place boulders in front of the school in order to protect the students, and staff from large vehicle impacts. To further improve the safety, in the near future certified bollards will be placed at the back entrance of the school (near the Hungry Mind).

Further Security Enhancements at ISH
Some of the other enhancements that are in the process are:

• Purchase of a professional handheld radio system for use between security, concierges, and the ISH crisis team.
• A robust and easy to operate remote door locking system installed on the front entrance doors.
• Improved communication within a shared database to and between reception and security guardhouse.
• Badge process: Parents will soon be given an identity badge to enter the school - for pickup and drop-off.
• Continued consultancy with security experts in the city.

We will let you know when more of these enhancements are implemented. In the meantime, do not be alarmed if you see police in the building in the next few weeks.
