Stopping School Fights and Bullying with Predictive Analytics

Creating a learning environment where the mitigation of disruptions and intimidation occurs is essential to helping your students learn and grow. Children should be allowed to enjoy their time at school. With predictive analytics, you can safeguard the moments in students’ day they cherish most from the interruptions of bullying and violence.

With so much going on in the school day, students occasionally need to give their brains a break. By design, rest time is built-in by the school system. But sometimes, it just takes one moment to break a student’s concentration for the rest of the day. From dealing with bullying or getting caught up in the drama of a large group, these moments can make it hard for students to get back to the task at hand: growing their developing minds.

With Milestone System’s XProtect® open video management software, you can sideline those disruptions before they become school-stopping events. Through predictive analytics tools, you can intercept those moments before they happen or stop them from fully erupting, minimizing the effect of bullying and school fights.

Bullying Intervention

The ways students experience school is constantly changing. But one thing remains - bullying. Leveraging predictive analytics for XProtect, you can analyze the sounds and visual cues of impending altercations, ensuring the threat of bullying doesn’t stop students from learning. Audio sensors and cameras are paired with analytics that detects crowds gathering, aggressive verbal language, and recognized key phrases indicating trouble. By identifying the threat early and sending out notifications to supervisors, situations can stop before the problem escalates.

Stopping Confrontations

Sometimes, it doesn’t take a bully to start a violent interaction. From arguments between friends to confrontations between classmates, aggressive behavior can occur organically at any time, leading to a disruptive and intimidating learning environment. Luckily, predictive analytics can help administrators spot a confrontation brewing and stop it before it spirals out of control. In addition to sound and visual cues of impending violence, our integrated system can identify and alert staff about potential threats, shouting, breaking glass, and gunshots — even if no one is actively monitoring the security system. By enabling teachers and administrators to stop violent activity, Milestone empowers them to get students back on track and back to class.

Breaking Up Large Groups

When it comes to identifying an impending altercation, the school staff knows the key visual indicators of trouble among students. Confrontations at school often gather crowds, so when administrators see students congregating in an unusual time or place, it’s time to intervene. People counting and heat-mapping integrations with XProtect use real-time video analytics to keep tabs on the number of people in an area, notifying staff when the numbers exceed the threshold. Then, administrators can send in help before the situation gets out of hand.

Safeguarding Moments That Matter

Creating a learning environment where the mitigation of disruptions and intimidation occurs is essential to helping your students learn and grow. Children should be allowed to enjoy their time at school. With predictive analytics, you can safeguard the moments in students’ day they cherish most from the interruptions of bullying and violence.
