Tulsa School Buses Are Getting New Cameras to Keep Children Safe

Posted: Updated:

Cameras are on the way to the fleet of Tulsa Public School buses. 

Right now most school buses in the district do not have cameras. Out of 300 buses, only 30-percent have video capability. However, there are about 100 fights among the 20,000 school bus riders every year.

The 2010 school bond issue will pay for the new camera system that will upgrade the fleet.  With the new system, video from the buses will automatically upload to the supervisor's offices, for review. A bus driver will also have the ability to flag certain video, after a fight or incident to get attention immediately.

"It's going to add value to what we do everyday and what we are able to provide our schools and the support we provide to our patrons," said Rosalyn Vann-Jackson, who runs the transportation department for Tulsa Public Schools.

The cameras will start being installed in January and should be completed, by the end of the school year.
