Purbeck School has CCTV system upgraded to improve security for students and staff

Bournemouth Echo: . .

THE Purbeck School has had its CCTV system upgraded to improve security for students and staff.

Business manager at the Wareham school, Sarah Cuff, said: “Having modern CCTV is important especially when we have almost 1,000 students here.

“Of course, it is also useful in holiday periods when no one is here and the school might be a target for intruders.”

Shaftesbury company Wessex Fire & Security carried out the £5,000 analogue to digital upgrade, which included installation of some new cameras.

Company security surveyor Chris Trim said: “This work just shows how it is possible to upgrade analogue CCTV systems without changing the cameras.

“CCTV in school and places of further education is not just about creating a deterrent for crime or searching for miscreants after a criminal act.

“Among other things it can help staff look at the flow of students and decide how that can be better managed throughout the day.”

The school now enjoys complete site coverage.
