of digital file sharing. “Some school districts want to use a common .AVI file,


but there are reasons why you don’t want to do that,” advised Robert Scott, senior vice president of strategy at 247Security. “Think about your last serious incident ending up on YouTube.” One solution put forward by 247Security was to develop


its own proprietary file format, which can only be accessed through its software and shared among approved users. Even with an easy-to-use interface, Scott emphasized the need for districts to have ongoing technical support. “We started out as a box product company and be- came a service provider,” Scott reflected. “The market has changed dramatically, and you should really be looking at what’s happening today. Products might have a long lifecycle, but if you bought your camera eight years ago, that’s light years away.” Having cameras alone does not necessarily make a bus safer in the moment. Most record evidence that can be used after the fact to prove a driver’s innocence in a liability claim or improve training moving forward. “Hopefully having cameras is a deterrent to the stu-


dents from either vandalizing the bus or hurting one another, but sometimes it’s amazing the things that we see even though the students know that they’re on cam- era,” said Donald Carter, transportation manager of Saint Lucie County Schools in Florida. Saint Lucie has 308 routed buses, 400 total in the fleet,


all equipped with video cameras. Since Carter receives about 15 complaints each day, he needs to be able to review video footage quickly. “You would think that the cameras being there would help discourage [negative behavior],” Carter said. “But at least with the cameras, we can see what happens and we can either confirm or deny it and give out consequences based on that, instead of not knowing whether it did or didn’t happen.” Last year, the district encountered three instances


where student riders made false accusations against their bus driver. “If it wasn’t for the camera, it would have been ‘he said she said,’” Carter recalled. “But not only did we see that it didn’t happen, because we get all our cameras with audio enabled, we actually heard them cooking up the story in the backseat before it happened.”
