NORTH CAROLINA (WIVB) – A school in North Carolina is adding a new security measure to protect students in case of a lockdown.
It’s a device that drops a metal pin that secures classroom doors and keeps attackers out.
A school outside of Raleigh is installing the “RhinoWare” technology.
Students and teachers have already been trained on how to use them.
The school is spending about $30,000 on the technology, and they say it’s worth it.
I love that they call it a “device,” as if this is the most complex thing ever. It is a heavy-duty door lock, which would prevent someone from opening the door from the outside. These things have been around for thousands of years.
As for the device being helpful in a dangerous situation, yes. Provided the bad guy is on the other side of the door. I suspect strongly that it will be used to keep substitute teachers locked outside the class.
