SPS Electronic Technician Cormac Pope works with one of the 50 security cameras to be installed at Ballard High School in the next few weeks. New cameras are going in schools across the SPS district.

Students at BHS and several other SPS schools will walk through the halls tomorrow morning with a greater sense of administrative eye than ever before. That’s because new security cameras are being installed at schools across the SPS district, beginning today. 

BHS is being outfitted with 50 additional cameras. 

SPS Electronic Technician Cormac Pope is part of a three-man crew going from school to school in the district, working on these installations. He estimates the work at Ballard will take around two weeks.

All Seattle schools are getting security camera upgrades.”

“All Seattle Schools are getting security camera upgrades,” Pope said. 

The new additions will join administrators watching students pass from class to class. They will be installed in the department pods, in the hallways and outside the building. 

Security explained the need for an improved system in an interview with the Talisman last year.

“The system has been outdated almost since it was put in,” security specialist Craig “Bear” Plummer said. “One camera at the end of a hallway doesn’t cut it. We’ve always wanted a new and different system, and the grant money from the district came through.” 

For a long time, BHS had only six cameras. Now, for the first time, most locations in the hallways will be accessible by camera.
