Building A Virtual Fence / USA
Security is a cornerstone of the Kyrene School District in Tempe, Ariz. The scope of the district’s new video surveillance system reflects just how important security is: A total of 1,800 Panasonic network video cameras provide a 360-degree “virtual video fence” to protect each of the district’s 25 schools as well as the district office facilities.
In 2004, the Kyrene School District created a strategic improvement plan, and in 2005, fundraising from a capital bond allowed many of the planned projects to be implemented. The plan included a goal “to provide high-quality, safe facilities that support healthy student learning environments for students, staff, buildings and equipment.” Merrill Technology Architects in Mesa, led by Alan Merrill, was hired to develop a comprehensive integrated security system design for all campuses, which would include video surveillance, access control and intrusion alarm.
