Keeping Students and Staff Safe in All Puerto Rico Public Schools
After Hurricane Maria severely damaged communication and lighting systems, the Puerto Rico Department of Education was concerned about a dramatic increase in school thefts and assaults. The department installed a centralized video surveillance system for its 856 public schools. The 10,000-camera system helped to improve security at schools by providing 24/7 visibility, enabling guards to respond quickly to incidents, and deterring crime. Intrusions consequently dropped 97% thanks in part to Seneca technology.
