N.H. School Board Approves $25K School Security Grant
The money will go toward video surveillance, video intercom and access control systems.
A school board in New Hampshire voted unanimously to accept a state grant for surveillance systems and other security equipment April 18.
The $25,470 grant is expected to provide around half of the funds necessary to install video surveillance systems in all of Manchester’s city schools, according to the Union Leader.
