Safety and Security

Through the 2020 Bond Project, Lane Community College is undertaking significant security and safety enhancements to ensure a safe and secure environment for students, staff, and visitors. One of the key projects is the security camera replacement initiative. Phase I of this project has been successfully completed, providing enhanced surveillance across critical areas of the campus. The second phase, which involves additional camera installations, is currently in the early planning stages. This expansion aims to cover more areas, improving overall campus security and monitoring capabilities.

In addition to camera upgrades, the college is focusing on access control and fire alarm system improvements. The classroom locking hardware is being assessed and upgraded to enhance both security and accessibility, ensuring that all classrooms are equipped with the latest locking mechanisms. A new access control system has been selected, and the integration of new software and door hardware with the existing infrastructure is underway. This phased changeover is meticulously designed to ensure a seamless transition, ultimately providing a more robust and efficient access control system.

Furthermore, the college is addressing the need for upgraded fire alarm control systems. The current equipment is being phased out by key suppliers, necessitating an overhaul to maintain compliance with safety standards and ensure reliable fire detection and response. These combined efforts reflect Lane Community College's commitment to creating a secure and safe campus environment, prioritizing the well-being of its community through advanced security measures and state-of-the-art safety systems.
