      Some surveillance cameras may soon be up at a local high school.

      The Dougherty County Schools Buildings and Grounds Committee met Thursday afternoon to approve the purchase. It will cost about $78,000.

      There will be eight cameras installed at Dougherty High School so that the full parking lot is monitored.

      "With the upgrades of Dougherty High, we looked at the safety of all of our areas," committee member Velvet Riggins said. "But while we're renovating Dougherty High, we'll go ahead and put those cameras in for the safety of the school and the afternoon events."

      The purchase now goes to the full school board for its approval.
