As students head back to school this fall, Frederick County, Md., is turning to Xerox (NYSE: XRX) and its CrossSafeTM program to provide a new layer of safety for schoolchildren. Cameras will monitor children getting on and off of the buses and record drivers who pass illegally. Xerox will provide the technology and maintain the program under a five-year competitively bid contract.
“Xerox understands our sense of urgency to address this very serious concern to student safety,” said Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins. “Violators will now face serious penalties and be held accountable for their disregard for the safety of children traveling on buses. CrossSafe is a turnkey solution that will help make bus routes safer and ease the minds of parents.”
Frederick County is the first county in Maryland to install enforcement systems on school buses. The county conducted a head-to-head pilot to evaluate the best available technologies and service providers. Xerox will provide the technology, software and process the violations. The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office will review and verify all violations before they are issued. Xerox will install enforcement systems on 40 county school buses. Installation is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
“The first priority for our bus drivers is the safety of our children,” said Mac McLean, acting director of transportation, Frederick County Public Schools. “We support Frederick County’s commitment, through this program, to the safety of our children.”
