Surveillance cameras rolling inside our local schools is nothing new, but what’s taking place inside Demarest’s public schools is truly cutting edge: a live feed from more than two dozen cameras with a direct connection to the police.
It’s an expensive, but effective tool that could be a sign of the times with an increase in school shootings over the years.
The system, which cost about $28,000, can even track movement in a crowded room.
WTF? “expensive, but effective”? Is this an editorial piece? And what increase in school shootings? Last I heard school shootings have been dropping since before Columbine.
