We use security cameras in our homes to help protect our families, so shouldn’t our teachers and school officials, who act as an extension of parents, also use security cameras to watch our over kids?
Melville, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) February 03, 2011
Montana Tech is installing surveillance cameras after a female student was attacked last week. The brand new Moon Area High School comes equipped with over 100 security cameras. Around 2,000 security cameras are planned to be added to the Bakersfield, California City School District to curb drug use and violence. Texas A&M University invested $400,000 in a surveillance system to watch over its parking garages. These are just a few examples of the surge in school security camera systems in schools and college campuses throughout the United States, reports SpyTown.com.
In Bnet.com’s article, “Caught on camera: new surveillance technologies boost campus security efforts”, Jean Marie Angelo writes on the myriad of uses security cameras have in schools and campuses, such as in watching over expensive equipment in campus labs and outside buildings to prevent vandalism, as well as security footage should an attack happen.
“We often take it for granted that our kids are safe in school and college. The reality of it is that incidents can occur anywhere, whether kids are in a fenced-in playground or on the bus. Security cameras may not prevent it completely, but they can deter it and show exactly how the incident happened,” asserts Howard Geschwind, SpyTown.com Sales Director.
Some school officials still have mixed feelings over the use of security cameras in schools and on college campuses, but with the National Center For Education Statistics reporting that 1.2 million students were victims of non-fatal crimes in 2010, there’s no denying that safety is a primary concern in schools, explains Geschwind.
“We use security cameras in our homes to help protect our families, so shouldn’t our teachers and school officials, who act as an extension of parents, also use security cameras to watch over our kids?” asks Geschwind.
SpyTown.com encourages schools and college campuses to take advantage of the benefits of school security cameras and college security cameras in watching over student safety and identifying problem areas before an incident occurs.
