Missouri S&T was the state’s only university to be recognized by the National Campus Safety Summit for increasing the safety and security of its campus community in 2018. Ranked 20th in the nation, S&T’s University Police has worked the last two years on incorporating emerging technology into policing efforts.

“We are very fortunate to be on a campus and part of a university system that supports law enforcement and campus safety and security,” says S&T Police Chief Doug Roberts. “Our department is a true team, and we are proud to be a part of this campus, the University of Missouri System and the Rolla first-responder community.”

Among the noted changes is a system that now provides more than 200 cameras on campus that are monitored by University Police 24/7. Camera views are also shared with the local 911 call center.

“At the end of 2018, more than 200 cameras were operating on campus,” Roberts says. “We are also adding a card access control system that will let police staff working in the operations room to monitor and remotely lock or unlock any door controlled by the new system by using a mapping program.”
