W.Va. School District Goes High Tech with New Surveillance System

System includes powerful DVR system, can share video with emergency responders


CLARKSBURG -- Destruction of property and fighting aren't as easy to get away with as it used to be in Harrison County schools.

In one middle school, a student surprised a peer with a sucker punch during lunch. He said he didn't do it, but it wasn't long before the principal knew otherwise.

In another instance, students were squeezing paintballs and splattering the walls. Within a day, the principal knew who was responsible.

Cameras were watching.
