Together with Atlantic Security, ProTek Fiber bid on an itemized list of enhanced security measures for Jefferson County Board of Education, set to cost up to $250,000. The items on the list were not released in detail to the public, as the enhancements are protected critical infrastructure information. They have been described as security measures on door locks and enhanced fencing. ProTek Fiber expects the enhancements to be about a month’s worth of work.
The upgrades will feature locked entrances on every school that require visitors to gain permission to enter. Employees will have total key access. School fences and other safety measures will be implemented to prevent unwelcomed visitors from coming onto school grounds. And, additional playground security enhancements mean elementary school classes will once again have recess outside.
