Dartmouth Okays $662,000 For School Security Improvements


TSM – Town Meeting members listen to speakers Tuesday night

Security improvements will soon be coming to Dartmouth Public Schools. 

Town meeting voters Tuesday night approved a capitol needs budget that included $662,000 to upgrade school security. 

The plan will pay for a web-based monitoring system where police can check out security video at local schools.  It will also provide for renovations at the entrances to schools.  Visitors will enter an enclosed area, show I-D and state their reasons for being in the school before being buzzed in.

 Town meeting approved capitol improvements totaling just over $3 million.  It included funding for new D-P-W equipment,  road repairs and a new phone system for the town. 

Voters also approved $110,000 as the town’s share for veterans housing at the former State Police barracks on Route Six.  Supporters of the project hope to begin construction next spring.
