Henderson County Schools Looking at New Security Systems
A western Kentucky school district is expected to hear proposals for installing new audio/video secure entry systems throughout the district.
The Henderson County Board of Education is taking up the idea at its meeting Tuesday evening.
The Gleaner reports South Western Communications of Evansville, Ind., gave the board a price of $39,760 to cover installation of 14 systems at 13 locations. The system offers color video of the person wishing to gain entry into a facility along with two-way audio communication for positive identification before entry is allowed, according to the proposal description.
The only district school to have a buzzer security system is the Thelma B. Johnson Early Learning Center, which opened in August.
