Advantages of Security Systems at Schools
There are many important reasons why schools have a definite necessity in having security systems installed throughout school grounds. Security systems prevent issues such as: vandalism, bullying, criminal activity and sexual predators. Up until recently, many schools had CCTV security systems installed throughout outdoor play areas, Classrooms, Office area, and hallways to mainly prevent and monitor vandalism. It turns out that cameras can prevent and monitor many other problematic issues.
Vandalism on school properties have been an issue for many years and school budgets have been applied in order to purchase and install security systems to minimize damage. The installation and use of security cameras have been proven to minimize vandalism, either by catching the perpetrator or deterring such activities from occurring in the first place.
Surveillance cameras have become essential in monitoring and preventing bullying as well. Bullying has always been an important issue in schools, but only recently has it become recognized as part of the school’s responsibility to monitor and discourage such activities. The Sunrise news station, which is located in Sydney Australia, reported a decrease in school bullying after cameras were installed to prevent vandalism (see:
Schools that have been investing their money on CCTV security camera systems are reassuring for many parents. A school willing to invest their money in security systems ensures that the general safety and security of their children are being addressed during schools hours, including after-school extracurricular activities and programs.
An important issue that has been overlooked many times are sexual predators. One of the biggest threats that school children face is the threat of sexual predators and pedophiles hanging around unobtrusively on school campuses or in parking lots. Camera system footages are very useful in tracking down predators or helping inform police about threatening situations in real time.
Criminal activity is also a problem occurring on school property and during school operating hours. Drugs being dealt on school grounds have been a highly problematic issue for many years. The presence of highly visible surveillance cameras at strategic locations, such as buildings and public areas/ school property premises, can prevent the dealing and usage of smoking ,drugs and alcohol and. It is foremost a deterrent and of course a tool in apprehending those involved in such criminal activity and removing them from school grounds.
School security personnel monitoring the screens and viewing security camera positions can take real-time action in notifying law enforcement and evacuating children, faculty, and staff in case of emergencies, such as fires or other dangerous situations. The shocking event of Rape Case in Vasco is example of non existence of CCTV. The most popular cameras used by schools are PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) Cameras. They are ideal for real time monitoring and can cover 360 degrees.

School principals turn to CCTV cameras to maintain discipline
Posted online: Fri Aug 19 2011, 03:35 hrs
Chandigarh : With infrastructure increasing in most of Chandigarhs private schools, principals have found it difficult to monitor activities both inside and outside the classrooms. To solve the problem schools have now turned to CCTV cameras which are connected to Digital Video Recorder (DVR) systems, that now enable principals to keep a tab on everything from their offices. Over the past year, the CCTV cameras have become a common feature in nearly 55 of the total 63 private schools in the city. They are primarily installed in corridors, classrooms, playgrounds, library, reception hall, laboratories and the entry gate.
For the principals the cameras have emerged as an effective tool in ensuring discipline, as they feel that the cameras create a psychological impact of being under surveillance not only among students but teachers and non-teaching staff.
Sanjay Sardana, Director of Manav Mangal group of Schools told Newsline: The principal cannot be present everywhere all the time. But the cameras have done away with this limitation since everyone in the school, especially the students, gets a sense of being under surveillance and hence maintain discipline.
Additionally, the DVR allows authorities to review events that have occurred over the previous seven days. This allows school heads to investigate complaints of bullying, misconduct or scuffles among students or even teachers by reviewing the stored footage.
In case the principal is not in the office, she can always view the previous days happenings. To look into the complaints, the principal can make use of the recorder in finding out that what went wrong. This way the system allows a fool proof inspection, said Punita Singh, counsellor at Carmel Convent School, Sector 9.
In some of the schools, the cameras are installed in the principals room as well. Apart from keeping an eye on the happenings in the different parts of the school, the basic purpose of installing these cameras is also to keep a check on those who come and meet us, said a school principal.
While most of the schools state the parents of students share a consent with them in reviewing the students through the cameras, they also agree that enough consideration has to be made to ensure that the surveillance system does not get interpreted as an intrusion into the freedom of students or teachers at the school.
Time and again we need to take feedback from teachers and students in order to make sure they do not feel restricted due to the camera being there over their heads all the time, said Sardana. On an average, each of the schools have installed a total of 90 cameras with each camera costing between Rs 8,000 to 10,000.
