Moore Public Schools Enhances Safety at Extracurricular Events With Metrasens
Metrasens’ advanced detection technology chosen to beef up security at events across Oklahoma school district.
NAPERVILLE, Ill., and MOORE, Okla. — Advanced detection security and safety systems solutions provider Metrasens today announces its collaboration with Moore Public Schools, Oklahoma’s fourth-largest public school district.
Together, they “aim to bolster safety measures across the district by deploying Metrasens Ultra detection systems, ensuring a secure environment for extracurricular events at 35 campus sites and various large venues,” according to the joint announcement.
Moore Public Schools “consistently evaluates and updates its protocols” and is “known for its proactive approach,” embracing new initiatives and technologies to enhance existing security measures.
Building on a successful pilot of Metrasens Ultra detectors in the previous academic year, MPS officially integrated them at the start of the 2023-2024 school year.
Several schools within the district have already incorporated Metrasens detection systems, which align with the district’s overarching safety goals, whether implemented district-wide or at individual campuses.
Why Moore Public Schools Chose Metrasens
Following a rigorous evaluation process of various detector options, Metrasens stood out with its comprehensive product offerings and exceptional service. The company provided on-location assistance and training, earning high praise from the district.
Metrasens Ultra utilizes sensor technology to identify potential threats, including concealed weapons, and flexibility for both indoor and outdoor use, coupled with portability that allows movement within and between facilities without physical contact.
Metrasens Ultra met key Moore Public Schools’ criteria, including non-threatening design, portability, flexibility, ease of use, battery power option, weather resistance, zonal indication, and accuracy.
“We are thrilled to play an integral part in helping MPS achieve their objective to accurately identify prohibited threat items before entry into their venues,” says Chis Arbeitman, vice president of market and business development at Metrasens.
“MPS is utilizing the Metrasens Ultra to screen patrons before entering middle school and high school events, including football and basketball games, cheerleading competitions, graduations, and school board meetings,” he says. “We remain committed to supporting all of their security initiatives to ensure a safe and positive experience for all participants in these venues.”
