NC’s Campus Safety and Parking Services department has centralized its essential security functions in a new state-of-the-art facility at the Welland Campus as part of a significant upgrade that enhances both safety and customer service.
Located at the Welland Campus, the Security Control Centre is home to Campus Safety’s command and control functions, dispatch, security camera monitoring, radio dispatch and on-site emergency communications and coordination for all Niagara College campuses. Among the many benefits of the centralized model is the creation of a common contact number for all NC campuses. Security can now be reached on a 24-7 basis by simply calling ext. 6999 (or 905 735-2211 ext. 6999 from an external phone).
“Providing a safe learning environment and workplace is a key priority at Niagara College,” said David Jastrubecki, manager of Campus Safety and Parking Services. “These upgrades are designed to build on the comprehensive security tools and procedures that are already in place, while enhancing the customer service we provide for students, staff and visitors.”
The control centre also incorporates new technologies, including an incident management system for tracking and reporting activity, and new mobile tools for guards.
“The security control centre represents a significant investment in new and enhanced technology,” said Jastrubecki. “These are important tools for our team of security professionals, who are dedicated to ensuring operational excellence, and incorporating best practices in campus safety.”
