Safer Schools
Friday, November 17, 2017 (Towson, MD) - Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz wrapped up American Education Week by highlighting his administration’s investment of $13.6 million to safeguard schools by installing security cameras and card reader door locks in all Baltimore County elementary schools and enhancing these security measures in middle and high schools.

The County is now completing the installation of video dashboard technology that provides public safety officials instant access to video feeds from security cameras at schools, libraries and other public facilities; as well giving them direct access to live traffic cameras on highways. The County has also installed GPS systems in school buses through a partnership between County government and Baltimore County Public Schools.

The event included a demonstration by a Baltimore County police officer of the video dashboard technology that provides responding officers with real-time situational awareness when responding to an incident at a school.
