The Oregon-Davis School Board is looking to update its camera security system.
Superintendent Dr. Steve Disney noted that the current system is 11 years old and with the growing age of technology and the need to provide the best security available for the staff and students, the board will be upgrading its system. Quotes will be received and the system will be installed once a bid is accepted.
While on the topic of safety, the board commended the Starke County Sheriff’s Department on their investigation into graffiti in a boys’ restroom that reportedly appeared threatening in nature. The graffiti appeared after a sporting event in March at the school and the Starke County Sheriff’s Department conducted an investigation. Police were present in the building throughout the day to ensure the alleged threat was not acted upon.
The board specifically recognized Sheriff Oscar Cowen and School Resource Officer Freddie Baker in their efforts to keep the school safe during a potentially dangerous situation.
No suspects have been named in the case.
