Stafford Schools Install New Main Entrance Security System at School Division Buildings

In an effort to increase the security of its schools and facilities, Stafford County Public Schools is installing a video intercom entry system at each of its 30 schools and 4 operating sites.

 The system, called AIPHONE, will be installed at the main school entrance and allow the main entrance doors to be locked during the school day and still permit visitors to enter (all exterior school doors are locked during the school day).  Visitors will push a button on an intercom located on the wall by the main front door of the school.  A security camera at the door will allow a school staff member to view the visitor on a screen inside the building.  The visitor will be asked for identification and the reason of the visit.   More...News Release 14-09
