Poland receives state grant for school security system

POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Poland schools received a state grant for their security system.

The district was awarded $42,000 from the Ohio School Facilities Commission to cover costs associated with the purchase of a security entrance system.

The system consists of a security camera, intercom and remote access equipment for one entrance at all of the schools within the district.

The grant will also cover a radio communication system. The radio provides network connectivity and coverage throughout the state providing rapid response in an emergency.

The money comes on the heels of a $15,000 grant the Poland Township Police Department received in January to provide for a resource officer to be stationed at the school.
