The Bartlesville Public Schools recently completed installing more than 200 security cameras at sites throughout the district.   

The project was part of the $36.72 million bond issue passed in September of last year.  The bond issue designated roughly 1.4 million dollars for safety and security items.  The camera surveillance system is one of the priority projects.

School Superintendent, Dr. Gary Quinn says the safety and security of students and staff is vitally important.  By increasing the number of security cameras, the school district is able to better monitor school facilities and add an additional level of security.

220 high resolution cameras have been added at sites throughout the district.  Bartlesville High School had 49 new cameras installed, and Bartlesville Mid-High School had 45 cameras installed.  Meanwhile, each of the six elementary sites had between 16 and 19 cameras installed.  The Will Rogers Complex, Education Service Center and transportation building had security cameras installed as well. 

School Resource Officers and school administrators can remotely access the cameras.  With verified login credentials, administrators can monitor their site at any given time.
