Twin Falls Schools Plan Security Upgrades
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — South-central Idaho school officials say $1.3 million will be spent to make security improvements at 13 campuses.
The Twin Falls School District says the money will be used starting this summer to install new security cameras and card readers.
The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1EV4HkU) in a story on Monday that an audit last summer identified new cameras and restricting the number of school entryways to be key priorities to improving school security.
District Director of Operations Brady Dickenson says the current cameras have limited coverage and the image often isn't good enough to positively identify individuals.
Money from a $74 million bond approved by voters in March 2014 will pay for the improvements.
