Niles Community Schools receives grant for advanced security system

NILES, Mich.—Niles Community Schools has been awarded a $442,773 grant that will allow for the installation of an advanced security camera system in the district, the school district said Tuesday.

The new security camera system will allow fire, police, and other emergency departments to share resources and reduce delays in crisis response time, Niles Community Schools said. There will be 24/7 monitoring of corridors, exits and building exteriors.

District personnel will monitor the system and the local police department will have access to it as necessary, according to the school district.

It’s estimated that the system will be installed by June 1, 2020 but cabling will be installed during the summer of 2019, which will continue during breaks in the school year.

The grant comes from the Michigan State Police Competitive School Safety Grant Program.
