CCTV for Public Spaces

The Division of Public Safety is committed to enhancing the quality of life to the campus community by integrating the best practices of public and private policing with state-of-the-art technology. A critical component of a comprehensive security plan using state-of-the-art technology is CCTV.

As prescribed by the University Policy “Closed Circuit Television Monitoring and Recording of Public Areas for Safety and Security Purposes,” Almanac April 13, 1999, the proposed location of permanent CCTV cameras will be provided to the CCTV Monitoring Committee for review and published in the Almanac before installation. On March 22nd the CCTV Monitoring Committee met and unanimously approved the installation of new cameras at the following locations:

      • 43rd & Market
      • 43rd & Walnut
      • 43rd & Baltimore
      • 41st & Baltimore
      • 40th & Chestnut
      • 3400 Chestnut
      • 39th & Market
      • 3400 Ludlow

The University uses several generations of American Dynamics UltraDome 360°, high speed pan/tilt/zoom cameras with motion detection capabilities.  The current SpeedDome Ultra VII Enhanced Day/Night utilizes a 23x optical zoom combined with a 10x digital zoom, providing a 230x total zoom.
