New Rules For Texas Schools

Shelby county schools are utilizing the technologies to alert staff to visitors who appear in the sex offender registry. The county has employed the V-soft program that checks the drivers license of school visitors and checks it against the registry. If the match is identified, the program alerts the operator who verifies the entry and, if confirmed, alert the security at the school.

The system has been tested for a period of 1 year in three county schools and was found to be reliable, so the county extended the system use to all 51 schools. During the testing period, the system identified 1 individual that was convicted of a sex-related offence who did not have a plausible reason to be present at the school. The offender was arrested.
