The plan includes:
- State-of-the-art camera systems in all elementary and special educations schools. That video could be live-streamed to police in their cars.
- Tablet computers that will allow police school resource officers to monitor video camera feeds from all over a building.
- Electronically-controlled entry systems to be installed or upgraded in all schools.
- A new visitor identification system at each school.
The county will spend about $1 million in cash and an additional $2.7 million in capital money from the budget year that begins July 1.
Kamenetz said the hope is that the county can be reimbursed later by state and federal sources.
Gov. Martin O'Malley earlier this year proposed $25 million for security improvements at schools in Maryland.
The Baltimore County Council is expected to discuss Kamenetz's proposed funding at a meeting Tuesday afternoon. A vote is scheduled for Feb. 4.
