Sandwich schools take bite from crime
SANDWICH, Ill.--The School Board here announced in late November a contract with ADT of Addison to secure their schools.
The Beacon News reported that the Board accepted a bid of $19,555 for the installation of an alarm system that would include one year of monitoring. Thereafter, the annual fee will be $4,000 for the four years remaining on the contract.
The request for bids came after a number of break-ins, the most recent of which resulted in $11,000 in damage in two separate buildings. School officials said that having ADT Security signs posted would act as a deterrent.
