There will soon be an extra set of eyes patrolling the hallways in Des Moines schools.

Tuesday, the school board approved the installation of 182 new cameras throughout the district. The total cost of the project is nearly $370,000.

The district plans to cover the expense by using grant funds and revenues from the local option sales tax.

More than 500 cameras are already in place in more than 60 schools in the district.
