NAPERVILLE, Ill. and TULSA, Okla., Oct. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Metrasens, a recognized leader in advanced detection systems for security and safety applications, today announced it is the leading detection provider for the Tulsa Public Schools (TPS) independent school district. Metrasens plays a pivotal role in enhancing safety and security protocols for the district by providing their state-of-the-art security screening systems across school campuses.
As part of the 2023-24 school year safety initiative, Tulsa Public Schools has updated and enhanced robust safety measures and security technology. The safety of students and team members is the utmost priority for Tulsa Public Schools, and the district actively seeks out best practices and advances in safety and security. Each of the 77 learning communities in Oklahoma's largest district has the flexibility to tailor safety plans and protocols to their unique communities. As part of a continued investment in safety and security, several schools have already integrated Metrasens detection systems, with the prospect of more middle and high school campuses following suit into 2024.
"Ensuring a secure environment across all Tulsa Public Schools district facilities, including school halls, campuses, and interscholastic athletic events, is our top priority," stated Dr. Matthias Wicks, Chief of Police at Tulsa Public Schools.
