TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Tuscaloosa city schools officials say they're hoping to replace broken security cameras by the end of the month.

Director of the district's facilities program Jeff Johnson tells the Tuscaloosa News (http://bit.ly/1n9rPnx ) says about 20 percent of the district's cameras don't work. Johnson says some of the cameras in the system are as much as 11 years old.

School board member Norman Crow says the broken cameras are a safety issue that the district can't afford to delay fixing.

Board member Marvin Lucas says the district should implement regular checks to make sure cameras in the system are functioning properly.
