Laradon Human Services Agency Secured by Brivo Access Control Management

Brivo Systems announced that Laradon, a human services agency serving children and adults with development disabilities, has chosen Brivo to provide access control management throughout its multi-building educational campus located in Denver, CO. Key-Rite Security is the integrator for this project.

Established in the late 1940s, Laradon was the first charitable organization in the Rocky Mountain region to offer support, education, and training to children with developmental disabilities. Today, Laradon offers 12 different programs to more than 600 children and adults at their eight-acre campus in northwest Denver.

“We were dramatically affected by the Columbine tragedy,” recalled Annie Green, Laradon's Deputy Director. “That incident caused us to examine how to better secure our campus. We tightened up security, staff started wearing ID badges, and we had mandatory check-in at our main building front desk, among other measures. We felt an even greater impact by a more recent shooting at a high school 30 minutes away. A transient had been hanging out by a rec center near the high school and ended up taking hostages at the school and shooting some students. We were really impacted by the potential vulnerability of our students. We had to do more.”

A contact at another non-profit recommended Brivo Systems to Green and her staff. Laradon contacted their security integrator, Key-Rite, for a demonstration. “Right away we noticed Brivo was easy to operate and it gave us the control we needed,” recalled Green. “We could give only the people we wanted access to certain parts of the campus at specific times—that high level of control.”
