To safeguard its students and staff, A.B. Davis Middle School in Mt Vernon, NY subscribes to a Zero Tolerance policy to violence, drugs and gangs. As part of this initiative, they used the recent summer break to install an IP Network Video Surveillance System.
Updating analog surveillance systems to IP-based video is a major challenge facing security professionals, especially in older buildings. Fortunately, advances in open platform software and Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras are making the migration to IP more affordable in older facilities.
Like others across the country, Council Bluffs schools have been the target of gangs, vandalism and theft. "As a safety and security measure it was decided to add Toshiba security cameras to our schools," said Dr. Jo Campbell, Assistant Superintendent of the Council Bluffs Community School Council.
