Video Insight Awards Second Security Grant to Harrison Schools in Colorado Springs

Video Insight, a developer of enterprise IP video surveillance software , is awarding the second in a year-long $250,000 School Security In-Kind Grant Program to Harrison School District Two of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Video Insight Awards Second Security Grant to Harrison Schools in Colorado SpringsAs the Video Insight School Security In-Kind Grant recipient, Harrison School District will receive Video Insight Video Management Software (VMS) licenses; 16 IP video surveillance cameras; 1 video encoder that includes VMS software licenses; 10 years of software upgrades; one year of a customer assurance program; and product training. Each grant award is individually valued at more than $20,000.

Harrison School Superintendent Andre D. Spencer said he was elated to hear about the grant.

“The Harrison community is so fortunate to receive a grant from Video Insight to provide a top-of-the-line security system for one of our schools,” Spencer said. “While school districts around the nation are investing in and improving security practices, we also look to business partners like Video Insight who can provide high quality equipment and training that allows us to focus on the most important goal…our students and their education.”

Located in Colorado Springs, just an hour south of Denver, Harrison School District Two has 11,000 students at 24 school locations. Sixteen of the district’s campuses are designated Title 1 and 70 percent of the student population qualifies for the federal free lunch program. Harrison has many challenging neighborhoods in their district – one of which has the highest crime rate in the state of Colorado – which is why the district has prioritized updating and adding security cameras.

“Congratulations to Harrison Schools on being awarded the February Video Insight School Security In-Kind Grant,” said Video Insight Chief Executive Officer, Robert Shaw. “The goal of the grant is to help districts like Harrison in need of a comprehensive security solution provide essential protection for students, staff and district property.”

Each month of 2014, Video Insight is awarding a school or college the equipment necessary to implement a video surveillance solution (software, hardware, and support valued at over $20,000 each). Harrison School District Two joins January winner Monroe Public Schools of Monroe, Michigan. Grant winners are notified and announced the last week of each month.
