Murray: Security cameras in the process of being upgraded

By: Sam T. Jensen –

Humboldt, IA – The superintendent of Humboldt schools is working hard to maintain a safe and drug-free high school with the addition of new security cameras.

During a Board of Education meeting in November, Superintendent Jim Murray brought up the idea of improving the high school’s security by adjusting current cameras in the high school to avoid blind spots and adding new ones to the parking lot.

Murray says the staff is doing a really good job at monitoring and supervising students, but the cameras will add a needed extra element. Murray says the school is “increasing our cameras and increasing our supervision. We want to have the safest school we can have.”

During last week’s Board of Education meeting, the board officially approved Murray’s proposal and upgrades are currently in progress.
