On Demand Dr. Bob Harkins will highlight the development of The University of Texas at Austin campus safety and security program by discussing the structure, the plans and programs, and the communications systems used at UT. This program oversees the day to day activities of 53,000 students, 17,000 staff and faculty and about 3,000 daily visitors. In addition to handling special events of more than 100,000 people, the campus safety and security team has reacted to a campus shooter, bomb threats, and a wide variety of other emergencies.

Read how to prevent this in the August 2015 issue of Security. Also read how building stronger relationships with local and national law enforcement can aid in school security awareness and response, learn about the dangers of continuing to use old credit card terminals, and see the ASIS International 2015 product review.
