Embu school invests in CCTV cameras, sniffer dogs to counter unrest
A school in Embu County has devised ways of dealing with indiscipline and unrest by investing in CCTV cameras and sniffer dogs to curb the use of drugs in the institution and enhance security.
Nyangwa Boy’s High School in Mbeere South Sub County is the first school in the county to implement this idea in the wake of increased strikes and destruction of properties in secondary schools in the country.
According to the school’s principal, Musyoka Moshe, the idea is yielding fruits.
Moshe says this was necessitated by the current situation being witnessed in various secondary schools and since his school has a population of 1,235 students, they saw the need to monitor the students remotely.
The school has a total of 27 cameras located at different places with monitors located at the principal’s and his deputy’s offices.
Moshe also says that since the installation of the cameras, theft cases have greatly reduced since everybody who enters the school knows that there is supervision in case you ‘plan anything fishy’.
