Key Control and Request


Key Control

Key Control plays a vital role in the safety and security of all district personnel entering a District site. The manner in which keys and control access cards are issued and maintained impact the overall ability of the Department of School Safety to be able to reduce unauthorized access to Hemet USD sites.


The security of sites are compromised when keys are "passed on" or not returned to Key Control. Each site should have a Key Controller that keeps track of keys assigned to site personnel. Maintenance and Operations is the central department for “Key Control” located at 2085 W. Acacia. For questions or concerns please call 951 765-5100 ext. 5202.
