Security cameras aimed at helping deter break-ins and thefts at Laguna Beach High School may be installed at the school in the near future, the Coastline Pilot reported.
At its meeting earlier this month, the Laguna Beach Unified School District school board voted to approve the security cameras on a first reading. The security cameras will only be rolling during non-school hours, according to the newspaper, and will be installed inside and outside of the school's administration building. Money, computers and cameras have been stolen from the school's office during several thefts and break-ins over the last year.
"We've monitored the number of keys made, changed the locks and we continue to have issues," Joanne Culverhouse, the school's principal, told the Coastline Pilot.
The school board is slated to vote on the security cameras again at a second reading, officials said.
