Marion County 911 and the Hannibal public school district are teaming up to access any of the security cameras in operation throughout the school district.

HANNIBAL, Mo. — If an act of violence were to occur at Hannibal High School, in the very near future responding emergency personnel will have real-time intelligence with which to work thanks to a partnership being developed between Marion County 911 and the Hannibal public school district.

The partnership will enable Marion County 911 dispatchers to access any of the security cameras in operation throughout the school district. “If we have an emergency situation it is imperative to have the ability to provide real-time, accurate intelligence to first responders, law enforcement, fire or any other agency on the scene,” said Rich Stilley, business manager for the Hannibal school district.
