THE INTENT IS REALLY FROM A SECURITY PERSPECTIVE OF IF SOMETHING HAPPENED, WE CAN GO BACK AND WE CAN INVESTIGATE SO EVEN IF IT’S SOMETHING LIKE SOMEONE FALLS IN A BUILDING OR SOMETHING HAPPENS IN A PARKING LOT, WE CAN GO BACK AND LOOK AT THE TAPES, AND SEE WAHT REALLY TRANSPIRED.” ONLY LAW ENFORCEMENT, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND F-W-C-S’S DIRECTOR OF SECURITY DOTTIE DAVIS HAVE ACCESS TO THESE CAMERAS. THE NEW ONES WILL BE GETTING INSTALLED IN SIX ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND THREE MIDLE SCHOOLS. THEDISTRICT HAS NOT RELEASED WHICH SCHOOLS ARE GETTING THE CAMERAS THE DISTRICT’S HIGH SCHOOLS ALREADY HAVE THESE NEW CAMERAS INSTALLED)) F-W-C-S IS THE FIRST DISTRICT IN ALLEN COUNTY TO PURSUE THIS PROJECT. THE PLAN IS FOR EVERY BUILDING IN THE DISTRICT TO HAVE THESE NEW CAMERAS BY 2020. LIVE IN STUDIO 15, TONY SANDLEBEN. WANE 15 NEWS.
