CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - Parents of students in Greater Clark County Schools brought their kids to school Monday to find security cameras and locked doors outside their children's school.
Security cameras were installed in five Greater Clark County Schools prior to the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, but after the tragedy, the school system decided to put a huge force behind safety.
"Over winter break we went ahead and stepped up our efforts to put that in every building so we had 15 installed over winter break." Said School Safely Officer Chris Ralston. "Those are all up and functioning now we're training staff and give them an idea of how that system works"
Parents or caretakers have to ring the buzzer, look into the camera and tell the desk why they are there. Ralston explained, "They'll ask them a few questions about why they're here, who they want to see that sort of thing. They can visually see the person through the camera system."
The school system says it only takes a few seconds but ensures safety in the schools.
