Twelve (12) Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras were installed around IAU Campus last June 2012 to ensure safety and security among the stakeholders of the school.
“It (CCTV cameras) will help us deter crimes and maximize security in the campus. We just have to review the recorded videos of the CCTV if an incident occurs,” quips Richilieu Canete, Head of Security of IAU.
The CCTV camera works by picking up the signal from the area being monitored. The images collected are sent to a CCTV monitor and recorded on video tape via a VCR (Video Camera Recorder) or as digital information via a DVR (Digital Video Recorder). The CCTV camera lens will determine how far the details it can see.
The installments of such were welcomed positively by the students. Pursuant to IAU’s CEO Harold E. Toring, these cameras are a surefire way to promote maximum safety and security which has always been the utmost concern of the Administration.
