Cameras to be installed

The University Police Department and Chief Eric Plummer are expecting money from the state’s Public Safety Office to install security cameras and electronic door access systems across campus.

The money that will come from the state is expected to be about $300,000 in order to fund the project. Cameras would go into places such as parking lots in order to make those spots on campus more secure.

According to Student Body President Tanner Franklin, the money has not been verified, but he said it sounded like the money would come through, and UPD would know by the middle of September if the project is a go.
