Initial Assessment:  The district’s current camera system is approaching the end of its useful life and should be upgraded in order to continue providing proper surveillance for the protection of the district students, staff, and assets.  Although each location has cameras located in parking areas and high valued areas, the system is based on analog technology and should be converted to digital-based technology.  Today’s cameras adapt in low lighting, pan across large areas, and use high pixel configurations to enhance the cameras’ ability to positively identify a surveilled person/object.

Plans:

  1. Using the plans developed from a district-wide security camera review completed by Exante 360 in January 2017, select and implement needed upgraded security camera system beginning in spring 2017 to be phased in over time at each district and college location.  Full implementation is expected by fall 2019.
    1. Lead(s): FM, DOIT Technical Services, and LRPD
    2. Funding Resources: Program Development Funds
    3. College and District Roles: Campus Management, Operations, and LRPD will work collaboratively to determine the best solution in camera placement based on pedestrian and vehicular traffic patterns and identified areas of concern and vulnerability.

Indicators of Success:

  1. Selected camera system purchased, installed, and operational with end-users trained.
Secure central depository of all video in place to ensure chain of custody and evidentiary mandates.
