QUALITY OF LIFE ON CAMPUS

STARTS WITH SAFETY

Creating safe learning environments on campus

“Every time there is another shooting we get another round of ‘what are we doing to prepare?'”

– Alan Cavallo, SJSU PD Captain

SECURING A CAMPUS
Outdoors IS HARD WORK

As campus administrators, police and IT professionals, you’re dedicated to providing a safe environment to those entrusted to your care, but achieving it comes with many challenges and requires innovative solutions delivered with minimal disruption.You grapple with stressors, such as:

  • Public events that attract crowds of varying sizes, such as fairs, festivals, markets, marathons, sporting events and outdoor concerts

  • Appropriate situational awareness for short-term or long-term events that can vary in location from one year to another or from one event to another

  • Blind spots (areas that lack surveillance) around your campus that make it difficult to monitor vulnerable areas in the outdoors where crime tends to trend

As a result, bolstering security is critical, but disruption of scholastic activity can be a barrier.

Problem:

Numerous campus blind spots, including parking garages

High and uncontrolled foot traffic from the surrounding downtown
