Level of Preparedness of the School Security Personnel and Their Qualifications Towards Institutional Security
Published: 1 January 2022
Abstract: School security is one of the prime concerns. It involves students, staff, and every other individual who is present at the premises. Hence, the duty of a school security guard is full of tough challenges. The guard must always stay alert and on his toes. This study determined the level of preparedness of the school security personnel and their qualifications towards institutional security. The respondents of the study include all thirteen (13) security guards in Misamis University Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines that serve as the respondents. The respondents are purposively chosen by the researchers because they are fit to answer the questionnaires provided by the researchers in determining the level of preparedness of the school security personnel and their qualifications towards institutional security. The security guard possessed very good qualifications in relation to their skills, knowledge, and work style, which resulted in a relatively high mean value. The security guard's level of preparedness in terms of operating school practices and programs garnered a moderate level of mean value, indicating that it still needs to be improved. It is evident that the relationship between the qualifications of school security personnel and their level of preparedness is statistically significant. Having a good qualification may positively contribute to a high-level preparedness among the school's security personnel. Most security guards were very efficient in fulfilling their duties due largely to their qualifications, which encompassed their skills, knowledge, and work style. They were able to maintain effective control over the conditions and individuals in their immediate vicinity. On the other hand, security guards thrived in the sector of level of preparedness. This is because they were highly prepared to respond with countermeasures and preventative actions in the case of a crime. It is essential that the performance of school security guards be constantly monitored and evaluated to determine the various strengths and weaknesses of everyone for future training and improvement. In dealing with the school's various problems, security guards are encouraged to maintain their high level of preparedness and qualification. It's also crucial to keep students from bringing weapons onto campus that may threaten other students or instructors, and to conduct random sweeps of students to look for contraband like as drugs and firearms.
