Claremont high school to add security cameras
The $42,626 approved by the committee will be used to add video cameras inside the building, to monitor commons areas and hallways, said David Putnam, chairman of the renovation committee.
“It provides security for covering a few different instances as students are in the hallways, there are times when altercations take place, so many times the administration has a hard time sorting out the details,” Putnam said, the cameras can record fights in the hallways or common areas. The recordings from the cameras will be stored for 30 days, he said.
The interior cameras would also help in instances when there is an unauthorized person inside, he said.
“It’s primarily to provide a watchful eye on what goes on inside the building and the hallways and where people gather,” Putnam said.
The extra money spent on security is coming from the contingency fund, but was built into the budget, Putnam said, mostly to handle unexpected costs often found in demolition.
Putnam said the renovation project is about 40 percent completed. The committee expects the contingency fund will be ample for any other unanticipated costs ahead, he said.
