Staff Trained on School Security System

Security SystemMEDFORD, Ore. — The¬†Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has already identified glitches in its new, high-tech security system at Shady Cove School.

Deputies say there were some issues with the hard-drive but those issues are now fixed. The sheriff’s office is also training its employees and teachers to use the technology.

By the end of September, employees at the sheriff’s office will have the chance to be fully trained to operate the system, which connects the department with the school in real time during an emergency.

The sheriff’s office wants to make sure staff knows how to operate it once swat and deputies are out on scene. By ¬†next Wednesday, all staff and teachers at Shad Cove School will be fully trained on it.

The sheriff’s office plans to test the system at least every month.
