Fiscal Year 2014 → Question 68
If funded, security cameras for stadiums would be funded through the Capital Budget under the School Security System.
The Department of Facilities Management has piloted security cameras at Richard Montgomery High School’s stadium and has determined that security cameras are not effective in high school stadiums due to limited area of coverage and lack of visibility. While one can see a figure on the field, it is difficult to identify the person from the camera view perspective.
The cost of security cameras for high school stadiums vary significantly depending on the distance of wiring to the building. As a result, the cost can range from approximately $3,500 to $10,000 per stadium.
