Electronic Security Upgrades at APS

Akron Public Schools Board of Education approved at its December 19, 2022 meeting, a significant investment in electronic security upgrades for all schools.

The board approved an investment of $3.5 million that includes a high-tech metal detector system, featuring 61 screeners for 17 schools.

The enhanced system also includes newer cameras for all school buildings, 23 bag scanners similar to those used at airports, as well as door alarms.

Some of the high-tech devices will be in use as early as this spring. Others, such as the metal detectors, could take up to a year to install in all Akron public schools.
