Riverton schools get new cameras

Sep 10, 2017 By Daniel Bendtsen, Staff Writer

The Riverton school district is set to pay $136,869 to Boyle Electric to have new security cameras installed at schools around the district. The district has 368 cameras around the city, and its oldest cameras are now 13 years old.

The upgrade will make all cameras digital. Superintendent Terry Snyder said "the "aged equipment" led administrators to have some problems last year with investigating student conflicts.

"The assistance they get with factual identification (with new cameras) is really good," he said.

He said the expansion, which should be completed by October, will help protect victims.

The new cameras will all have high definition and low-light capabilities, with some even having "no-light" capability.
