ACPS has been awarded $500,000 in grant funding to improve school security across the division. The funding will help support:
- A high-tech Electronic Access System with FOB controlled entry points at all of schools. This will replace the current requirement to punch in a code.
- The upgrading and alignment of video cameras and surveillance systems.
- The development of Alexandria Police Department access to ACPS cameras in case of a high-level emergency.
- Night vision capability for all exterior security cameras.
