The Tucson Unified School District has installed a new security addition to some of their schools.

The addition is a doorbell system with a camera that gives the front office staff access to the see and speak with visitors before actually letting them in. 

John B. Wright Elementary School in midtown Tucson is one of the 46 schools with the newly installed system, and the schools principal, Deanna Campos, said the system helps with all-around comfort for teachers and staff.

"TUSD is very committed to safety, to keeping our kids safe to keeping our staff safe to keeping our community safe so I'm very glad they decided to do this because safety first at John B. Wright and throughout TUSD," 

The camera system was approved back in May during a TUSD special board meeting.

The installments to the 46 schools were made during the summer break. 

TUSD is working on adding the installments throughout the rest of their schools as the year goes on.
