Security is top of mind for school districts all across the country.
At a recent meeting, the Owen J. Roberts school board accepted a donation of public security software from CODY Systems, designed to better track incidents at district schools and quickly find information on suspicious individuals.
CODy co-owner David Heffner, a 1996 graduate of OJR, offered to donate the system after being contacted by the district’s Chief of Security & Safety Brandon Daniels. Daniels, who joined Owen J. Roberts in October, said. “I knew most of the departments in the county were using their system. I reached out to find out if there was a less expensive version of their software.”
Heffner agreed to donate not only the system, but the first year of maintenance. Thereafter, the district will pay an annual maintenance fee. The donation is valued at more than $20,000.
