Scope of Work
6. The Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD) is looking to utilize a high-level weapon detection system
that also video records all people that pass through the systems at all our high school campuses, district athletic
facilities, and other district locations for a total of 55 weapon detection systems throughout the district.
This weapon detection system would greatly assist our campuses with large numbers of student enrollment and
large athletic and graduation events at our large fieldhouses and stadiums. We want the weapon detection
system to detect the location and number of weapons or threat objects such as; knives, guns, brass knuckles
and razor blades, while ignoring personal artifacts like coins, keys, and jewelry. The use of the video recording
capabilities will allow us to identify concerns and have a video history of the entire event and everyone that
passed through the metal detectors that day, night or event.
7. The Dallas ISD is looking to use a metal detector in conjunction with a weapon detection system at high schools,
district field houses, stadiums, and other district facilities. Metal detectors would also be utilized at middle
schools to replace the older versions of the metal detectors currently in use throughout the schools and athletic
facilities. The metal detectors will be less expensive and therefore, we are looking at purchasing an additional
130 metal detector units to upgrade and continue to meet the security needs of our secondary schools and
facilities across the Dallas ISD.
