Tulsa Public Schools Adopts Metrasens Ultra Detection Technology
The district purchased nearly three dozen Metrasens Ultra detection systems to improve security at athletic events and in school buildings.
TULSA, Okla. — Metrasens, a provider of magnetic detection technologies, announced it is the detection provider for the Tulsa Public Schools (TPS) independent school district.
As part of the 2023-24 school year safety initiatives, Tulsa Public Schools has updated various safety measures and security technology. Each of the 77 learning communities in Oklahoma’s largest district has the flexibility to tailor safety plans and protocols to their unique communities.
To improve security at athletic events and in school buildings, the district has purchased nearly three dozen Metrasens Ultra detection systems. Several schools have already integrated the system, with the prospect of more middle and high school campuses following suit into 2024, the company says.
“Ensuring a secure environment across all Tulsa Public Schools district facilities, including school halls, campuses, and interscholastic athletic events, is our top priority,” said TPS Chief of Police Dr. Matthias Wicks. “To accomplish this goal, we have deployed Metrasens Ultra technologies and steadfast safety protocols to protect the well-being of everyone in attendance.”
Metrasens Ultra employs technology that can quickly and accurately identify potential threats, including concealed weapons. It is flexible for use indoors and outdoors and has a portability factor that allows movement within and between facilities without the need for any physical contact. Metrasens Ultra is a passive technology, emitting no harmful radiation, making it safe for everyone including those with medical implants of expecting mothers, the company says.
“We are honored to collaborate with Tulsa Public Schools, offering the advantages of the Metrasens Ultra detection system to bolster security and instill confidence,” said Chis Arbeitman, Vice President of Market and Business Development at Metrasens. “The Tulsa Public Schools district is at the forefront of advancing safety protocols in K-12 schools, and we remain committed to supporting their security initiatives.”
