The Internal Security Review

For background on the Fairfax County plans for school safety, see the FCPS press release on the Internal Security Review conducted by the Office of Safety and Security and presented for a School Board Work Session on June 18, 2018. The Internal Security Review recommends spending $20 million on CCTV cameras across the school system. The plans include no budget for additional school resource officers or school safety officers.
