Arkansas School District Installs 28 New Security Cameras

Before adding the new cameras, there were only four cameras monitoring the district’s schools.

Marmaduke School District has added 28 new security cameras to their campuses, which school officials say will help increase safety and security.

Before adding the new cameras, there were only four cameras monitoring the district’s schools. The new surveillance cameras cover every entrance and hallway in the district and can be monitored 24 hours a day.

District administrators will be able to view the camera feeds from their computers and their phones, according to Superintendent Keith Richey.

“We want to do everything we can so that our parents and our students understand that we’re going to have the best security system and that their kids when they come to this campus are going to be safe,” Richey said.

The Marmaduke Police Department can also access the video feeds.

According to Richey, the new surveillance cameras were paid for using money from a millage passed by voters a few years ago.
