Security System Installation
University Police must approve the purchase and installation of security systems for all campus buildings. A “security system” is defined as any device, system, or subsystem of another system designed to detect and/or report the presence of a criminal act or violation of a security practice or policy occurring within a specific space or area. The term applies to, but is not be limited to, systems or devices:
- Intended to report criminal intrusion into a protected space;
- Intended to permit or deny access to a building or space;
- Intended to report security violation events such as alarmed exits, delayed egress locks, or systems and door prop alarms;
- Intended to be activated by a victim of a crime during a duress condition or hold-up event. This includes emergency telephones or intercoms or call boxes, duress alarms and hold-up alarms;
- Intended to record by any means, the activity of persons or places before, during and/or after a criminal event and includes both video and audio recording systems or devices.
Units or departments interested in acquiring a security system must first submit the Security System Request Form. Upon receipt of the request, the Physical Security Coordinator will consult with the unit/department regarding their security needs.
This process is meant to ensure that all security equipment is centrally managed and monitored by University Police in accordance with the Facilities Design Standardization Policy.
If you have any questions, please contact the Physical Security Coordinator at 502-852-7241.
