New Visitor Management System and Procedures

Brebeuf Jesuit is implementing new procedures for visitors to campus during the school day. The Raptor Visitor Management System is widely used in schools nationwide and is now in use at Brebeuf. Part of keeping our campus safe is knowing who is in our building at all times, and the new system will allow us to better do that providing a safer environment for our community.

The Raptor system will streamline the check-in process for all guests to the school. Visitors will simply scan an ID such as a Driver’s License at the kiosk by the front doors, and the system will do a quick check to ensure that registered sex offenders are not entering the building. Then, visitors will indicate the purpose of their visit and answer a few COVID screening questions. A visitor badge will print out at the reception desk for guests to wear while in the building. On the way out, visitors scan the barcode on the visitor tag, and the system will sign the guest out. It’s that simple. If a visitor does not have a government-issued ID for any reason, reception staff can use any form of identification to manually enter the guest’s name into the system. Guests will still need an appointment to visit campus during the school day, and all other visitor policies will remain in effect.

The Raptor system checks the visitor’s name and date of birth for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. This is the only database checked by the Raptor system. No other data from the ID is gathered or recorded, and the information is not shared with any outside agency.

At Brebeuf Jesuit, the safety of our students is our highest priority, and we believe this new system further enhances our security protocols. Thank you for your understanding and support of this important change.
