This Chart Analyzes the Increase in Campus Security Cameras

 - Dec 5, 2012
Although some students may object to being filmed while they get their education, campus security cameras are standard practice these days.

This infographic looks at the rise of campus security cameras as a method to deter crime and infrastructure damage.

There are four main areas identified as places where cameras are usually found on school campuses. These areas are: where money changes hands (cafeterias), entrances and stairwells, parking lots and "at risk" areas that would be attractive places for attackers to pounce. Of course, there aren’t usually cameras in places like bathrooms or lockers.

Campuses that a few years ago only had 15-20 cameras now often use 150-200 campus security cameras to keep an eye on every inch of the school grounds.
