University beefs up security on campus

Posted: Updated:

A local university is beefing up security on campus as a brand new system is adding nearly five times the number of cameras used at Kettering University.

The system is a state-of-the-art, brand new command center for campus security at the Flint school. After a four month upgrade, there are now 90 cameras located all over the grounds. These monitors enable security guards to watch for any suspicious activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The high definition, digital system enables officers to zoom in on a car's license plate. Kettering University, the Leer Corporation and the C.S. Mott Foundation formed a three way partnership to come up with funding for the system.

Meanwhile what do students think about the new, state of the art security system? Well, TV5 couldn't find anyone who doesn't like it.

The university feels the new system will make life better for everyone in this part of town. Eventually staff will also be able to view the security cameras on mobile devices.
