MILWAUKEE-- Florida's Broward County Public Schools, the nation's sixth largest school district, have hired Johnson Controls to design and install a security tracking and response system (STAR). Incorporating SISCO's FAST-PASS system provides a standard method to document and track visitors as they enter and exit school sites, helping the school district comply with the Jessica Lunsford Act, which took effect in September 2005 and set requirements to prevent sexual offenders or predators from having access to Florida public school district campuses. Many states have a similar act in place, and the company expected to complete the installation in 250 schools by the end of September.
