DHS Grant Helps U. of Tennessee Deploy Video Surveillance Unit
KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—The University of Tennessee (UT) will upgrade its video surveillance unit later this fall with help from a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) grant.
UT plans to use the $196,000 Buffer Zone Protection Program grant to install additional cameras to its Neyland Stadium and to upgrade the venue’s closed-circuit system, according to KnoxNews.com.
The new system will allow officers in the command center to view a scene, identify the problem and relay the information to police or medics prior to their arrival to the incident.
