Robertson County School Buses To Get Surveillance/Black Boxes
ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Last night the Robertson County Board of Education unanimously decided to go forward with the decision to fund surveillance cameras on all 92 Robertson County School buses.
The news system acts like black boxes that can provide not only video surveillance but monitor driver behavior by tapping into bus electronics, like lights, brakes, turn signals and other safety equipment.
Officials will also be able to track buses on a map and even access the buses cameras in real-time, all from the home office.
Smokey Barn News met with the Supervisor of Transportation for Robertson County Schools, Joshua Hinerman. Hinerman gave us the 411 on the new camera system as well as a tour of one of the new buses recently acquired by the district.
Officials say the new camera systems will be installed before the start of the next school year. Estimated cost of the cameras, about $125,000. For more information watch Smokey’s video report.
