Alpine ISD plans for new security system

Posted: Thursday, January 23, 2020 7:00 am

At its Jan. 15 meeting, the Alpine ISD Board of Trustees heard Superintendent Becky McCutchen review expenditures for a Texas Education Agency 2019-2021 school safety and security grant that would pay for a shooter detection system at all three district campuses. McCutchen said the grant would cover at least $25,000 of the system’s $57,000 price tag, but was hoping to have the grant fully funded.

The shooter detection system is interfaced with law enforcement, and has sensors that would be placed in several areas at all campuses. The sensors would detect a gun shot, and automatically notify law enforcement, a response quicker than calling 911 or pressing a panic button.
