CDW Sells School District 36 Low-Res, No Blackbody Hikvision Fever Cameras With Federal Funds

By John Honovich and Charles Rollet, Published on Oct 01, 2020

Mega IT distributor CDW sold low-resolution Hikvision fever cameras with no blackbodies to a Lawrence County, Alabama school district which purchased it with almost $200,000 of federal funds.

This raises safety risks for the school's children and its community.

This deal is arguably worse than Baldwin County half-million-dollar Hikvision deal as (1) Lawrence County purchased 80% lower resolution cameras (2) directly from CDW, a publicly-traded company that should know the risks involved in such technology.
