Sabre Integrated Keeping Private Schools Secure
At one of the most prestigious private independent schools in New York City, with a strong reputation and a long list of successful and notable alumni, the security of Students, Staff, and Campus are top priorities.
With approximately 1700 K-12 students and 325 faculty and staff spread across two campuses, keeping everyone safe and secure is the responsibility of David, the Director of Security and Safety.
Before joining this prestigious school in 2016, David, retired NYPD, worked as a security chief in the aerospace industry. In that role, he worked alongside some of the Sabre Integrated team, including the CEO, Clifford Franklin.
When David was recruited, one of his first actions was to bring onboard the team at Sabre, after seeing them in action in his previous role.
In 2016, the board and managers at the school realized it was somewhat behind peer schools, other independent private schools across New York when it came to CCTV and security systems. They already had a video surveillance system, although it was antiquated and no longer fit-for-purpose.
Parents and boards of trustees expect increasingly high standards when it comes to safeguarding students and teachers.
In private schools with urban campuses, risk factors are higher, making access control and 24/7 secure video surveillance a necessity for keeping everyone safe. David had encountered too many CCTV and access control companies that failed to deliver. In his experience with Sabre, he knew that they could provide the right solution.
Sabre listened to the security challenges the school management were facing, then designed an integrated system that had an element of traditional as well as a cloud-based security system that covered far more ground than the previous set-up, keeping students and staff safe across the Manhattan and Bronx campuses.
Solutions installed across the facilities include IndigoVision video security, incorporating high-definition cameras and video management control center, SabreVault powered by Brivo, for cloud-based access control. This includes ongoing monitoring, maintenance, training and support for the team David leads. Sabre is an integral part of the security apparatus across the school.
“In a very short space of time, Sabre made fantastic progress and improved the security at the school. They have a great tech team, the work we are doing together keeps going from strength to strength and we look forward to a continued and long-term relationship.
One of the big advantages of working with Sabre is that they listen. As a team of professionals, they never assume, always ask the right questions and find ways to solve problems that other companies would miss. As a security chief and retired NYPD officer, I highly recommend Sabre Integrated.” David, Director of Security and Safety

Motiva is a petrochemical company that is wholly owned by Saudi Aramco.
Petrochemical companies face many risks when storing and distributing hazardous materials. Corporations processing chemicals and petroleum must prevent emergencies that can cause danger to employees, the environment, and those living around the facility. Firms do not want to harm their reputation by having an explosion or security breach and must install a thorough security system.
Motiva hired Sabre Integrated Systems to work on one security installation in a petrochemical plant in New Jersey. This initial opportunity led Sabre to work at eight separate Motiva sites throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. The video security systems Sabre Integrated installed for Motiva have many purposes including, perimeter security, compliance, and process control.
The video security system Sabre installed enables Motiva to monitor if employees are following operational safety procedures which help with compliance policies and ensures they will have a clean audit. The security equipment consists of viewing gauges and monitoring equipment enabling operators to oversee employee and visitor activity at fuel tankers and filling stations.
Sabre’s team of technicians had to obtain Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC) certifications to allow them to work near oil tankers which complied with Coast Guard guidelines.
Security personnel at Motiva benefit from having a security plan that can monitor an entire operation that spans acres of property from one central location. Facilities managers can watch for any errors which could result in an oil spill and have their teams respond quickly to emergencies.
County College of Morris is a community college located in New Jersey.
College campuses are vast, and they need advanced school security systems to assist personnel with preventing and responding to emergencies.
The recent rash of violent crimes committed at educational facilities has prompted schools to improve their security measures. The federal government passed the Jeanne Clery Act in 1990, which requires all colleges to provide students and employees access to their crime logs. A safe campus is not only essential for students and staff, it is important to reputation management.
Sabre Integrated installed more than 130 cameras throughout the entire CCM campus, as well as security alarm systems in offices that allow staff to discreetly alert security to attend to hostile situations. This comprehensive school security system covers more than 200 acres and protects more than 4,000 students.
The college has the reassurance of knowing that authorities can react more quickly to emergencies, and that emergency responders will have an accurate location of where the danger is occurring. Ensuring a safe, secure campus gives CCM a competitive edge in attracting more students and increasing enrollment.
LCH.Clearnet, a subsidiary of LSE, with headquarters in London, is a clearinghouse hosting many of the major exchanges and platforms as well as a wide range of the OTC markets.
Financial firms process and store sensitive information that is vulnerable to tampering. Unauthorized access to this data has to be averted to avoid the potential for identity theft and market manipulation. Institutions have to block security breaches and monitor access to restricted areas. External and internal auditors mandate they have comprehensive security systems in place to prevent security violations.
Sabre installed cameras and access control systems for LCH.Clearnet when the company moved to a new location in New York City. The clearinghouse uses the security system to provide an audit trail of who enters and leaves the building and restricted areas. The data can be referenced in the event of a security breach.
Having a meticulous security plan will complement the stringent compliance procedures that LCH.Clearnet has to maintain. The Exchange has peace of mind knowing that Sabre Integrated installed a security system that will deter security threats.
