Tennessee State University Beefs Up Campus Security

IDCard-tsujpgAfter a recent series of break-ins and other crimes on the campus of Tennessee State University in Nashville, the administration has instituted new security measures. Among the initiatives is a requirement that all students, faculty, staff, and administrators wear and display identification badges while on campus. The new policy is intended to allow security personnel to immediately identify students and employees from visitors or unwelcomed guests.

The university said that those who fail to wear their badges in plain sight will be subject to disciplinary action or removal from campus.

The new identity cards will eventually include additional information that will allow students and staff access to campus buildings, to check out books from the library, and even to make debit card purchases from their campus account for food and other commodities.
