Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)

The Department of Public Safety is committed to enhancing the quality of life of the campus community by integrating the best practices of public and private policing with state-of-the-art technology. A critical component of a comprehensive security plan using state-of-the-art technology is Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), which has been proven effective in reducing criminal activity .

CCTV cameras on Franklin & Marshall's campus monitor and record public areas for the purposes of safety and security.  The CCTV Policy, available through the Department of Public Safety, regulates the use of CCTV cameras.

A list of all College owned or controlled actively monitored camera locations is published semi-annually in College publications and made available by the Department of Public Safety to anyone requesting the list.
