On-Demand Webinar: Safeguarding Higher Education: Modernizing Alarms, Warnings, and Security Integration

This webinar explores the best practices for optimizing alert and security systems used by colleges and universities to secure their campuses and integrating them with computer-aided dispatch and mapping systems to improve incident response.

In this engaging session, we discuss the dynamic landscape of campus safety, where alarms play a pivotal role in security operations, including incident response. Imagine a scenario where every alarm activation not only alerts authorities but also seamlessly integrates with CAD mapping systems to more precisely locate the incident. This level of integration can enhance campus safety significantly.

Our guest speakers — Aaron Lauth, chief of the Carnegie Mellon University Police Department, and MCP subject-matter experts Mike Hunter and Brian Malinich — share their insights and expertise regarding this approach to campus safety.

Attendee Takeaways:

  1. Understanding complex challenges in higher education safety.
