Portland Public Schools to Improve Security with Surveillance Cameras

The Portland Public Schools district announced on October 21, 2013 that all K-8 schools (including elementary and middle schools) will be outfitted with video surveillance systems within the next two years.

As reported by the Oregonian, $1.4 million will go towards the new security measure. Installation of these new systems is underway at 14 schools already, with electronic key card readers to be added at all front door school entrances.
