					Security Cameras In Schools And Colleges

Security cameras being placed in schools and colleges have become a big
issue as far as whether they need to be installed or not. Some school
officials in different areas say they don't belong in schools and
colleges while in other areas the idea of security cameras in the schools
and colleges are welcomed. By placing security cameras in schools and
colleges people feel the students may feel safer while at the same time
ward off anyone who might want to commit an act of violence.

The use of security cameras in schools could also prevent threats and
acts of violence from actually happening. The problem of security cameras
in some of the smaller schools and colleges is the expense. The up keep
on the security cameras and keeping them in operating condition. Security
cameras are already in use in some schools and in some places on campus's
of colleges. Such as security cameras in parking lots and in stadiums
where sports are played. The security cameras allow monitoring of the
areas they are placed and are not meant to invade any one's privacy but
to provide protection to the students and faculty as well.

Security cameras on college campus's are on a higher rate of being
installed because of previous tragedies and circumstances. Students
knowing that security cameras exist would definitely feel safer. There
have been several tragedies already on college and school campuses,
leaving authorities to search through the aftermath. Trying to find
witnesses to question and of course the list goes on. With the aid of
more security cameras in place at college campuses and schools, perhaps
authorities would have a better outlook on the tragedy and the issue
could be resolved much quicker.

Families and students get traumatized by tragedies that occur on school
campuses and college campuses. And some agree these could have been
avoided if security cameras were present. In other cases, they feel even
if security cameras were in place and a tragedy was unfortunate enough to
happen, authorities could resolve the issue much faster without having to
question so many already traumatized by the event that occurred.

This is the reason why some schools are considering the use of security
cameras too. Many high schools are going through the process of
rearranging their spending budget in order to install these security
cameras in their high schools for added security and protection. Most
schools as of now, have different forms of security such as monitoring
patrols and assistants who patrol the hallways in between classes,
however it seems there are just not enough to go around, in the bigger
high schools. This is where the idea of security cameras need to come
into existence within our schools.

Security cameras would not be placed in bathrooms or locker rooms, this
would be an invasion of the student and faculties privacy, however the
concept of having the security cameras in cafeterias and hallways, as
well as the school office and possibly the parking lots would be
considered a good thing.
