New campus security firm begins tonight

Nearly two months after a former LOC student was shot on the campus, Security One has been selected as the college’s new security firm.

“The firm’s contract begins at 12:01 a.m.,” said Jesse Chatman, director of Administrative Services. ¬†“The firm will assist the campus in determining what changes need to be made and another report with more information will be released,” he said.

In addition to hiring a new security firm, sky cops have been installed by the Memphis Police Department.  They are located on the lawn in front of Brownlee Hall, on the track behind the Bruce Hall gymnasium, in the student parking lot and on the dorm parking lot.

A committee consisting of the Campus Activity Board, administration, faculty and staff will continue to address security concerns, Chatman said.
