Cameras At Arkansas School Improve Security

ROGERS, Ark. – Officials at Elmwood Junior High School are finding that its new surveillance system has been helpful in curbing student violence.

Last year 32 cameras were installed throughout the facility. Since then, the cameras have videotaped children engaging in fights and other inappropriate behavior. One camera even caught a student lighting a bottle rocket.

The school’s resource officer credits the new system with increasing security and reducing crime on campus. The cameras keep an eye on students when teachers or administrators are not present.
