NY K-12 School District
To ensure the safety of staff, students and the community as a whole, the district safety committee took a careful approach to school security by insisting that the upgrade team work closely with local emergency responders, including police, fire departments and local homeland security officials. It was decided early on that responding officers should be able to access the district's video from their squad cars and remote devices, in addition to the central dispatch office.
Because Milestone software enables integrations with countless third-party vendors, the XProtect video management software (VMS) was the logical choice to set the new course.
- Milestone XProtect Expert VMS and Smart Client
- Remote access and monitoring with Milestone Mobile
- Entrance access control from LenelS2 Security
- Network cameras from Axis Communications and MOBOTIX
- Consulting and implementation by Digital Surveillance Solutions (DSS)
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) also funded creation of a database to track shootings on K-12 school grounds. This research aims to uncover why multiple-victim homicide incidents have been increasing. In 2019 a Federal Data Strategy also began to examine data on school safety. Both efforts can help to better understand the nature and extent of violent crime that occurs in U.S. schools — and ultimately how best to prevent future incidents.
