“Campus police tighten security” is the headline of a story in the student newspaper of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The story describes recent robberies on campus and what is being done to improve security. Robert Ratchford, chief of the campus police outlines measures that are being added to protect students from crime and other threats, sadly echoing the Virginia Tech murders:
According to Ratchford, campus police will continue to implement alerts through e-mail, red phones in classrooms and soon in text messages through Rave Wireless.
“We want to become redundant in the way we warn people,” Ratchford said.
