Sex Offender Accused of Entering School

Ident-A-Kid’s Complete Campus Security Solution (CCSS) Visitor Management System has been officially adopted throughout Onslow County Schools. All 38 schools are able to track all visitors entering their campuses. Utilizing CCSS’s self-service kiosk, visitors first produce their driver’s license for positive ID and then utilize the touch screen to enter their reason for visiting and destination. The system performs a Sexual Offender Check (SOC) against the National Sexual Offender Registry; and then for cleared visitors, prints a badge with the visitor’s name, photo, date/time and destination. “Thanks to Ident-a-kid, we were able to catch someone on campus. We hope this makes our parents feel more comfortable sending their kids to knowing we have a system like this. It is just one more level of security we have in place,” states Director of Safety and Security, Dusty Rhodes. View full article...

Visitor check-in at Kalispell’s five public elementary schools has gone digital, upping the level of security. Gone are paper sign-in sheets. Visitors and volunteers now check in at new digital stations that feature touch-screen monitors, card scanners and label printers. The stations were installed over winter break and started being used in January at a cost of approximately $4,800 from technology funds. Cameras also were installed at each elementary, which administrators can access by cellphone. To check into the new system, a visitor scans his or her license. Information collected from the license includes first and last name, birthdate and state of residence. If a visitor does not have a license, he or she will be prompted to type in the information. A photo of the visitor will be then be taken. An adhesive visitor or volunteer badge will print featuring the person’s photo, full name and date and time of checking in. A code also appears in the left corner above the date. When it comes to checking out, the visitor types in the code to complete the process. View full article...
