Incident Notification and Campus Security

Incident Notification and Campus Security

When it comes to security there are few places as densely populated with increased risk than a college or university campus. There are several factors that contribute to this increased risk including stress, alcohol consumption, dating violence, mental illness and little supervision often for the first time in a young adult’s life. College is when young people come into their own as adults and build a foundation of who they will become in the future. Our Campus police are often the first line of defense when it comes to the safety and security of college students.

Campus Police & Local PD

The campus police are typically a small force of personnel tasked with patrolling the campus for safety and violations of both school policy and local law. Campus police can be called out to a simple argument between roommates, to oversee a college event, or to patrol the streets at night to ensure students are safe.

What happens when a major incident occurs? Are the Campus Police ready? how do they call for additional back up or local police? How can  they streamline that process, improve response times and potentially save lives in a critical situation?

Wave Plus System

The WAVEPlus system utilizes the two-way radio system campus police departments already have in place. Messages with details of where the incident is occurring are instantly transmitted over the radio network. This secure and instant means of communication can save precious minutes when calling for back up during a major incident.
