Discussion Topics

  • Security Camera Upgrades (Update)

  • Emergency Call Box Upgrades (Update)
Andy Anderson has worked hard on this. We are waiting to hear back from a PO regarding the Lawrenceburg Campus. By Spring semester hopefully all of Cooper, Danville, and Lawrenceburg upgrades will be complete.
All are now working well except 4 doors at Leestown. We are doing upgrades now. Lock down can now be done easily and quickly.
ER call box upgrades at Newtown—A PO is forthcoming. Corey Howard and Ray Forsythe are working with a water sealant company. Only one call box is currently inoperable, but they are working on this. Using these boxes, someone can just push a button on the box, and they will be automatically connected to 911!
