Binghamton Schools May Boost Security

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The Binghamton City School District is looking to spend millions of dollars to improve security and infrastructure. 

The school board has approved a referendum to be placed before voters asking for $12 million in upgrades that would include security cameras, monitor systems and access readers to ten buildings. 

$900,000 for the improvements are proposed to come from the capital reserve fund with New York State aid covering the remainder.

A public hearing will be held March 10 with a vote March 17.

District officials say there are currently over 200 cameras keeping an eye on things at the high school and security at the building is considered the highest in the county, but improvement is still possible.

If voters approve the work, the construction could begin next year.
