Video Security on Campus
In the spring of 2012, the Director of Public and Environmental Safety created and now leads a project team charged with creating and implementing a university wide video security policy and to conduct risk assessments of all facilities and open spaces on all campuses to determine if the use of video security could reduce risk.
Request for Proposals (RFP) Process, project deliverables, etc.
The DPES requested and received proposals from several consultants specializing in the application of video security to reduce risk. A proposal review team was appointed and charged with evaluating project proposals in relation to the project requirements. The project requirements are listed below:
Open and Transparent Process
An integral part of the policy development process is community engagement. DPES has sought the input of our various stakeholders across our campuses, including university leadership, faculty, staff, and students through presentations, open community meetings, and by soliciting input through our web site. These forums provided the university community with an outline of the project, its goals and objectives, and opportunities to provide input. DPES is committed to openness and transparency throughout this process.
The DPES values community input and welcomes comments, concerns or recommendations that we may discuss with our team. If you’d like to reach out to us, please do so, anonymously if you so choose, by clicking on the link below. The information that you submit will be sent to Deputy Chief Linda O’Brien for inclusion in the project. If you feel the need to speak directly with the project manager, please do so by submitting the request to her via http://publicsafety.tufts.edu/community-input
