A couple of weeks ago, a 15-year-old Richmond High School student was gang-raped in a campus alleyway during a school dance. A crowd of witnesses watched for hours while the brutal act took place, yet there was no surveillance cameras installed on the school grounds to capture the incident.
We’ve come to an age where campus security should be a pressing concern for school officials. After this eye-opening incident, there has been growing concern among parents, educators, and community leaders at the lack of security monitoring devices on school campuses.
Recently, the West Contra Costa County School board voted to go ahead with plans to install a IP surveillance system featuring 120 cameras at Richmond High.
