Campus Security Standards Implementation

The Campus Security Standards Implementation Project will improve existing electronic access control and video recording systems at approximately 150 campus buildings by the end of 2021. 

Bringing Standards to Security

Using a mix of university and federal/state grant funds, UC Davis is bringing critical security equipment used throughout UC Davis up to the same standard. Currently, the campus uses multiple electronic access control and video recording systems – few of which support centralized management for a coordinated response.

Benefits of Standardizing Existing Equipment

Replacing disconnected equipment and assigning its management to the UC Davis Police Department improves security in many ways:

  • Dispatchers can report real-time video details to officers responding to equipped areas
  • Dispatchers can remotely monitor and control systems, if necessary
  • Building access can be granted/revoked quickly
  • Police Department manages compliance with privacy policies for electronic security systems.
  • Users with multiple access cards for impacted buildings will receive a single access card.

This Project Does NOT...

  • Add security equipment to facilities that currently don’t have any.
  • Impact Student Housing. Student Housing currently manages the security systems for all of their residences on campus. These systems have the ability to integrate with the campus system at a later date.
  • Change the ability of administrators of current electronic security systems to grant or revoke building access, or view video security images.
