Police Departments Connect to School District Camera Feeds to Aid Incident Response
Pittman, Elaine
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v76 n3 p62-64 Nov 2010
School systems and police departments are community partners, and ensuring student, faculty, and officer safety is a high priority for both. In Pennsylvania, police departments are being both innovative and proactive by using wireless technology to handle school safety. If there's an emergency, local police departments can increase situational awareness by directly linking to Pennsylvania schools' live video camera feeds. About 128 cameras keep watch over the Franklin Regional School District's five schools. And the Murrysville Police Department will upgrade officers' in-car laptops with software that will connect to each of the district's live video feeds. Linking to these feeds could provide vital information for police officers in the event of an emergency. In this article, the author discusses how the new security system helps ensure the safety of students, faculty, and police.
