Hopatcong, NJ -The Hopatcong Board of Education has undertaken an aggressive review of current operational practices with an eye toward improving building security and insuring greater scrutiny of all visitors, as well as staff, and students entering and exiting the Hopatcong school buildings. Among the changes already being undertaken are the addition of surveillance cameras in locations not adequately monitored, the installation of a access control system which will automatically open and lock doors on a schedule, require the use of access swipe cards by staff members, and identify as an alarm event on surveillance video any unauthorized opening of a locked door. Additionally, wireless cameras are being planned to monitor the major athletic fields. The final and major part of the security update is the modification of all the main school entrances to include real time camera surveillance with intercoms and electronic buzzer entry systems. Security planning will continue to be modified as needed based on suggestions from trained police personnel as well as school security personnel.
