Public Safety is implementing new system updates to keep students living in both the Downtown and Oakland areas safer.

According to United Student Government (USG) President DillonKunkle, the Public Safety Oversight Committee met Jan. 16 and discussed the improvements and updates Public Safety is making to their system. The informal board meets triannually to discuss the state of affairs at the University and includes University President Paul Hennigan, Director of Judical Affairs JW Tabacchi and Chief of Police Jeffery Besong as well as other University representatives.

The software currently in development will link dispatch with card swipe stations and add identification tap systems to shuttles. With this system, the identification card check-ins will be integrated with public safety, according to Kunkle.
