The school district has a plethora of problems from fighting and bullying incidents to school break-ins that are “impossible” to monitor due to antiquated systems that are very rarely up and running. “Only thirty percent of these cameras are working at the present time. Therefore the current security systems can never be depended upon to provide any verifying information,” said Tatem. “Columbia County Schools is just the type of school system we wanted to help when we created the Video Insight School Security Grant program,” said Video Insight Chief Executive Officer Robert Shaw. “We know that our contribution will help Columbia County Schools enhance their school security and help provide some much needed piece of mind in protecting their students and employees.” Every month of 2014, Video Insight is awarding a school or college the equipment necessary to implement a video surveillance solution (software, hardware, and support valued at over $20,000 each).
