Security Features

A leading consideration for any prison bus vehicle is the security features available. We’ll start by addressing the leading options for keeping your transportation team and your inmates safe as they are transported across the country. These features include:

  • Protected windows

The steel bars and mesh on prison vehicle windows can help keep teams safe by preventing inmates from breaking the windows on the vehicle.

  • Driver partition

Something that sets apart out Prison buses in partitions to separate occupants and guards. In each of the leading models of prison buses for sale the driver partition is a critical security feature. The driver must be protected from the vehicle occupants and must be separated to prevent distractions. It’s important to look for a partition that includes a spit guard with a small window that can be lowered to ensure optimal communication while in transit.

  • No Interior Door
