Fulton County Schools is moving forward with plans to add security cameras at every school in the district.
We told you about the district’s plan last week.
The Fulton County Board of Education approved the license plate-reading Flock cameras at Thursday night’s meeting.
The cameras will read the license plates of cars that drive on campus.
- Fulton County Board of Education to vote on whether to install Flock cameras outside schools
- Robotic surveillance cameras helping Cobb County catch violent criminals quickly
- Flock cameras helping police catch suspects across metro Atlanta
The school board hopes the cameras will add an extra layer of protection to schools.
“If someone comes on the school ground that is not allowed or banned for bringing a gun onto the school ground or something like that, it will alert our local law enforcement,” said Paul Hildreth with Fulton County Schools’ safety and security department.
Officials said the cameras could be on every school campus by January.
