Grant Awarded for Security Cameras

Middlesex is one of seven community colleges in the state that have been awarded funding to install security cameras on campus. Each grant is for $157,000, and, at MCC, will allow the College to install cameras on interior and exterior common areas of the College Center, Performing Arts Center, Studio Theatre, Library, Johnson Learning Center and the Instructional Resource Center.

“This will provide an additional level of security for students, faculty and staff at MCC,” said Ivan Scott, interim director of Campus Police.

The grant, the Urban Area Security Initiative – County College Security Project, was awarded to the County prosecutors of Middlesex, Essex, Hudson, Passaic, Bergen, Morris and Union by the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security and Preparedness. Community colleges in each of those counties will benefit.
