Cameras coming to Baton Rouge school buses

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board has agreed to add cameras to 50 buses at a time until they are on all 650 of the school system's buses.

Currently, there are 30 school buses with cameras.

The Advocate reports the board voted Thursday 10-0 to expand the camera program.

The cameras are largely meant to catch motorists who speed past when a bus stops to pick up or drop off children, but also are being used to monitor student behavior and driver performance.

The traffic cameras are being supplied and installed by a Harahan-based company called Force Multiplier Solutions. The company has more than 2,000 bus cameras in operation, most of them in Dallas and Jefferson Parish.
