LVC Tapped To Upgrade White Bear Lake Schools Security


LVC’s security solutions include a network of high-definition video surveillance cameras.

LVC Companies has been selected to upgrade critical security systems safeguarding students, staff and property of the White Bear Lake Area School District.

Based in the city of White Bear Lake in the northern Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area, the district covers all or parts of Birchwood, Gem Lake, Hugo, Lino Lakes, Little Canada, Maplewood, North Oaks, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake and White Bear Township.

LVC will upgrade security at the White Bear Lake High School – North Campus with an integrated network of state-of-the-art Avigilon access control devices and high-definition video surveillance cameras. LVC will further boost building security by installing a Bosch intrusion detection and alarm system.

The systems will be tied to the district’s existing security and communications networks, providing a seamless, end-to-end solution for monitoring and securing school buildings.

LVC’s next-generation access control, video surveillance and intrusion systems offer numerous benefits
including improved threat identification and accelerated response times in emergency situations.

“We’re proud to help protect the people and property of the White Bear Lake Area School District,” said LVC technology consultant Diana Roy, who crafted the bid package for the security upgrades. “Deployment of these unified access control, video surveillance and intrusion systems enhances security in numerous ways, including threat location, identity and alarm verification, streamlined workflows, and improved situational awareness to guide and hasten incident responses such as facility lockdowns or directing first responders.”

The school district, with a total population of approximately 63,000 residents, serves nearly 9,000 students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. The district also offers adult basic education, community education classes, recreation offerings and a senior program.

The video surveillance and access control upgrades are part of the district’s ongoing security enhancement plan, with completion set for 2024.
