GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Pitt Community College is working to ease some concerns on campus by looking in to more advanced security measures to keep students and staff safe. PCC Police Chief Jay Shingleton says the college is working on a five-year plan that will address some issues, like doors that do not lock without a key, and other areas that may be an issue if something happens on campus.
“From adding more cameras to better designs on the buildings, we’re trying to make sure all of those things are remedied over the next 5 years,” says Shingleton.
PCC is still in the planning stages of the plan. Instructors in classrooms have keys to lock the doors currently if the school is put under a lockdown. Students are always taught how to barricade entrances for security if needed.
