SGA Will Vote on Video Surveillance Resolution

A resolution to request the installation of video surveillance equipment on MTSU parking lots was introduced at the Sept. 18 caucus meeting of the university’s Student Government Association.

The resolution, brought by Sen. Austin Wood, suggests that all parking lots on campus be equipped with video cameras covering the entire lot. The feeds from these cameras would be monitored by the MTSU Police Department.

The resolution faced some resistance from senators who asked if there were less expensive measures that could be taken first, such as working to improve campus patrols or only fitting the most high-crime areas with cameras.

While the SGA cannot directly effect change in the policy of the MTSU Police, the resolution, if it passes in the formal meeting next Thursday, Sept.25, will send what Executive Vice President Haley Cobb called an “Implied suggestion from the concerned students of MTSU.”
