Louisiana College will be improving its campus lighting, video surveillance system and weapons screening equipment thanks to a grant from the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
The school has been awarded $100,000 for the improvements, reports KALB.
Louisiana College President Dr. Rick Brewer said, “This grant will continue and expedite the College’s safety and security initiatives by funding additional surveillance cameras and external lighting,” reports the news station.
The grant will enhance safety and security improvements the college has been making for the past five years at buildings, parking lots and residence halls. In addition to security cameras and better lighting, those improvements also include airport-quality screening devices for large events on campus.
