LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Little Rock School District has beefed up security on their campuses with 1,300 new cameras. 

The new security cameras are high resolution with zoom capabilities that can easily identify someone. 

According to the district, the cameras they had been using didn’t have clear footage and they say the new cameras are a game changer. 

They’re also upgrading alarm systems at forty locations. The updates will save the district nearly $2,000 a month. 

“We’re in a safety world, we have to do everything we can to maximize safety for students. Cameras are a huge plus – we’re able to see what’s going on. plus it’s a deterrent. Students see a camera, and they may think twice about what they had planned on doing,” says Ron Self.

The 1,300 new cameras were installed in middle and high schools in the Little Rock School District.
