A Texas school district, in an effort to protect its students from child predators, has turned to software from Raptor Technologies that will issue guest badges to visitors only after their names have been scanned against databases containing the names of known predators.

The Rockwall Independent School District recently approved installation of the new program from V-Soft, a Houston, Texas company. Visitors will now have to present a valid state or government-issued photo identification card to the school’s receptionist, such as a driver license or military ID.
