Over the past decade, our Crisis Management Team (CMT) has taken meaningful actions to significantly improve safety and security on campus. The CMT is committed to continuous improvement, and is constantly monitoring, evaluating?and executing additional ways to strengthen campus security. As part of these ongoing efforts, new security measures have been added in Building 1, J.J. Daniel Hall.
Moving forward, those who have meetings or need to access the 2nd floor in Building 1 will enter through the front doors and show their Osprey 1Card or other valid photo ID to the security guard. The security guard will then contact the office/person and escort the visitor to the office.?The guard will be onsite from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.?
The addition of a security guard in Building 1 is just one of many recent actions that have taken place. Other campus improvements to strengthen building security include the installation of a centralized campus building lockdown system, card access system on all campus housing facilities, 100+ panic buttons with direct links to campus police department, 250+ security cameras on exterior and interior locations, enhanced lighting in several areas and retrofitting classroom as well as?lab and office locking systems for increased protection.
