CODY, Wyo. (AP) – Fears of bullying have led to the installation of 73 new high-definition cameras at a high school in northwestern Wyoming, with officials hoping to deter as much violence as they capture on recordings.

Cody High School principal Dave Treick says he’s excited about the new system, which by Christmas will replace an old analog system that now has just seven cameras.

He told the Cody Enterprise he’s worked in schools where such systems have been used to document details of fights, to assess blame and culpability.

The school polled students in a “climate and culture survey” last spring and they highlighted concerns about feeling unsafe when they were on campus. Full story.
