School security cameras to run soon

Surveillance cameras have been installed at Walpole High School but are still a few weeks away from going into operation, said principal Stephen Imbusch. He said the 22 cameras are dispersed throughout the building – inside and outside. “We are in the process of ordering the signage required by Town Meeting prior to putting them into use, and we will need some training in [their] operation,” which will take “probably a week or two,” he said in an e-mail. News that the school wanted to add security cameras last spring provoked a protest from students, who brought their privacy concerns to the School Committee and Town Meeting. The cameras, and a policy detailing their use, were approved to “ensure the health, welfare, and safety of all students, staff, and visitors, to deter theft, vandalism, and other negative behavior, to safeguard district buildings, grounds, and equipment, and to monitor unauthorized individuals in or on school property.”
