Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Coby Culbertson and I am the technology director for the Dubuque Community School District in Dubuque, IA. The reason for my inquiry is we have been having ongoing discussions with the our local municipalities that allow you to access their security cameras coverage and they can access yours.In light of the recent national and local events, we continue to be diligent in our efforts to interconnect the video management systems of the City, County, and the School District of Dubuque but aside for the technical challenges, we are looking to for examples of protocols/process. To that end, I am wondering:
Like Tim we do the same thing in Kennewick. We supply a laptop and staff to operate it to the command center during a prolonged event. The laptop will give access to control doors, see cameras, and control speaker systems in the buildings.

Sorry I missed this thread while it was fresh. San Marcos Consolidated ISD also has an agreement in place that is similar to a MOU. The Interlocal Agreement that we implemented is attached below. Ours is a little different as the Interlocal Agreement is for a dedicated fiber connection between the local municipality and the school district. At this point, the only authorized use is for police access to our video surveillance cameras, and the thought is that we will update this agreement as we pursue more service partnerships. In our setup, the police access our video through their secure networks, back through the municipality, then directly to the school district without traversing the internet. Hope this information is helpful.
