September 2018 www.SecurityInfoWatch.com / Security Dealer & Integrator 39 Rich Montalvo: If I were to give them a them a grade, I would say a C or low B. ey could be doing more, although they are oen limited by budgets. Campuses we deal with are increasing their security patrols, especially around residence halls. ey are using more technology, and they are trying to educate staff, faculty and students about ways they can help with the security challenges a campus faces. Mike Dorrian: I would give them a passing grade, but I still see a lot of folks out there – oen because of budgets – who are not keeping up with technologies that can benefit them in ways they don't fully realize. It is our job to make them aware. What makes securing a college or university campus a challenge? Montalvo: e openness of a typical higher-education campus makes it difficult to create access choke points. Most people can get on a campus with virtually no restric- tions, so you can only do so much to funnel them into areas where you have full control of the environment. Dorrian: Compliance issues can be a challenge. Many of the higher-education campuses we work with have research facilities. Depending on the work they are doing, they may be subject to local, state and/or federal regula- tions requiring additional security. Also, we work with campuses in very rural settings and others that are right in the heart of a major city. Each environment requires different security approaches.
