Tulsa Public Schools Embrace Metrasens Ultra’s Advanced Detection Technology
Each of the 77 learning communities in Oklahoma’s largest district can tailor safety plans and protocols to their unique communities.
NAPERVILLE, Ill., and TULSA, Okla. — Security and safety advanced detection system provider Metrasens is the leading detection provider for the Tulsa Public Schools (TPS) independent school district.
Metrasens “plays a pivotal role in enhancing safety and security protocols for the district by providing their state-of-the-art security screening systems across school campuses,” according to the company announcement.
As part of the 2023-24 school year safety initiative, Tulsa Public Schools has updated and enhanced robust safety measures and security technology.
The safety of students and team members is the utmost priority for Tulsa Public Schools, and the district actively seeks out best practices and advances in safety and security.
Each of the 77 learning communities in Oklahoma’s largest district has the flexibility to tailor safety plans and protocols to their unique communities. As part of a continued investment in safety and security, several schools have already integrated Metrasens detection systems, with the prospect of more middle and high school campuses following suit into 2024.
“Ensuring a secure environment across all Tulsa Public Schools district facilities, including school halls, campuses, and interscholastic athletic events, is our top priority,” says Dr. Matthias Wicks, Chief of Police at Tulsa Public Schools.
“To accomplish this goal, we have deployed Metrasens Ultra technologies and steadfast safety protocols to protect the well-being of everyone in attendance,” he says.
Why Tulsa Public Schools Chose Metrasens Ultra
Metrasens Ultra “employs state-of-the-art sensor technology that can swiftly and accurately identify potential threats, including concealed weapons,” according to the company announcement. It is “uniquely flexible for use indoors and outdoors and has a portability factor that allows easy movement within and between facilities, and without the need for any physical contact.”
This completely passive technology emits no harmful radiation and is thereby safe for everyone, including people with medical implants or expecting mothers. Its sleek design and small form factor adds to its attractiveness for use in applications where spaces were not designed for larger alternatives.
“We are honored to collaborate with Tulsa Public Schools, offering the advantages of the Metrasens Ultra detection system to bolster security and instill confidence,” says Chis Arbeitman, vice president of market and business development at Metrasens, in the company announcement.
“The Tulsa Public Schools district is at the forefront of advancing safety protocols in K-12 schools, and we remain committed to supporting their security initiatives,” he says.
