When I was a kid – the worst thing I had to deal with at school was a bully. But let’s face it – today’s reality is that school crimes are on the rise.

I read this great white paper from Milestone: “Schools Improve Security and Save Money with Open Platform IP Video Surveillance“. It lays out a guide for administrators and security departments on the benefits of open platform IP video surveillance technology. It discusses in depth how new developments in video surveillance technology based on IP technology are helping primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities improve security, while enhancing operations and minimizing losses in commercial areas (such as bookstores, cafeterias, and vending machine halls).
