In addition to traditional security and electronic security, the Southern Cross Group team is offering Help Points to enhance the security of students, staff, and visitors of university villages and campuses.
Help Point is a new technology designed for open spaces such as university campuses, train stations, parks, etc. It is a pole of about 3 meters heigh, weighing 150 kgs each, bolted into the ground using concrete pads. It displays an emergency button that can be used to access immediate help whether it is an emergency or a simple enquiry.
