County College of Morris is a community college located in New Jersey.
College campuses are vast, and they need advanced school security systems to assist personnel with preventing and responding to emergencies.
The recent rash of violent crimes committed at educational facilities has prompted schools to improve their security measures. The federal government passed the Jeanne Clery Act in 1990, which requires all colleges to provide students and employees access to their crime logs. A safe campus is not only essential for students and staff, it is important to reputation management.
Sabre Integrated installed more than 130 cameras throughout the entire CCM campus, as well as security alarm systems in offices that allow staff to discreetly alert security to attend to hostile situations. This comprehensive school security system covers more than 200 acres and protects more than 4,000 students.
The college has the reassurance of knowing that authorities can react more quickly to emergencies, and that emergency responders will have an accurate location of where the danger is occurring. Ensuring a safe, secure campus gives CCM a competitive edge in attracting more students and increasing enrollment.
