College campuses may be a place of learning, but they’re also a place of crime and danger, especially at night. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2014, there were 27,000 criminal incidents against persons and property on campus at public and private 2-year and 4-year postsecondary institutions that were reported to police and security agencies. Unfortunately, crime and assault rates haven’t changed much since then, and that may be in large part due to the fact that college campuses are tough to secure.
With multiple buildings, and even more floors within those buildings, providing video surveillance for a college campus is comparable to providing surveillance for a small city. Because of this, security camera installation teams have struggled to provide the configuration that campuses need to ensure the ongoing safety of students, staff and each school’s property. Fortunately, every problem has a solution—even the tough ones.
