How Electronic Security is helping SROs combat Vaping, THC and Bullying Issues in K-12 Schools

Tusco, Inc. recently joined TAASRO at their Annual Conference for School Resource Officers held at the Orange Beach Event Center.

The event was well attended by over 750 SROs from the Southeast there to continue learning best practices for protecting children in K-12 schools.

Among the many topics presented for education and discussion were the problems schools face monitoring and controlling what goes on in bathrooms and other areas of an educational facility that cannot be monitored by video surveillance. A few common problems found in both public and private schools are vaping, THC, and bullying.

Since these incidents typically take place in bathrooms and locker rooms it makes monitoring and controlling it difficult for school faculty.

Tusco had the opportunity to present an inexpensive product and solution that helps as a deterrent and monitors for such events.

Halo Smart Sensor is an all-in-one security device designed to:

  • Detect and Identify Vape and THC
  • Monitor Air Quality
  • Prevent Spread of Infectious Disease
  • Detect Aggression and Calls for Help
  • Alert for Vandalism and Trespassing
  • Detect Gunshots
  • Detect Chemicals and Gas

Under the Federal Grants for K12 Schools, additional CARES Act funding has been approved for schools for a variety of different school needs, including projects to improve and/or monitor indoor air quality at school facilities. With this recent passage of funding, implementing vape detectors and air quality monitoring systems like HALO Smart Sensor are more obtainable than ever.
