IP Security Coming to A School Near You

In recent years, it’s become more evident than ever that our nation’s schools and churches aren’t always a safe place to be. If you’re like me, you’ve wondered what measures must be taken to ensure that facilities like these are protected from violent crimes. In 2001, 17% more students carried a weapon to school and that number increased nationwide by almost 30% from 2001-2004. America witnessed several atrocities across our country due to these increase, but since 2004 that number has begun to decrease. We can thank city officials and school districts for their efforts in enhancing safety in recent years.

Today, most schools in America maintain some form of surveillance on campus. As campus-wide networking has increased, the capabilities for expanding security systems have become almost limitless. Schools have begun to integrate their current analog systems with new IP (Internet Protocol) security cameras allowing their security network to grow exponentially. By adding IP cameras to these systems, schools benefit from higher resolution video and the ability to monitor security footage remotely.

Churches have also seen their share of devastating events in the past decade. To combat potential threats and protect parishioners, churches have been turning to surveillance. Many facilities have begun installing IP cameras to monitor activity and record services. Unfortunately, crimes can happen anywhere even in our churches and schools, so it’s essential to have a security system to deter criminals and catch those who dare to violate the law. Surveillance systems have become more affordable than ever and no matter the cost, a price can never be put on safety.

    Its sad that there has to be surveillance in our school and churches. But, a parent gets a sense of security.

    As a kid living in a not so crime free area for part of my life we had metal detectors and cameras everywhere in my school. It was kind of nerve racking walking to school in the 8th grade just to walk through metal detectors when I got to school for the first few days. But after having another student threaten my life I was more than happy to have the metal detectors there until they got the punk.

    Like the article sayes, it is a shame that we have to take such measures to protect our children! But as a parent, I sure am glad we have.

    It is very unfortunate that churches and schools are becoming less and less safe. But, a surveillance system is an excellent choice in combating this problem. Sometimes, cameras can monitor areas that people cannot.
