Safety and Security Cameras

There are a number of safety and security cameras on the Kamloops and Williams Lake campuses. These cameras cover public areas considered to be higher risk of property theft, personal security issues or where there are other criminal or anti-social behaviour concerns.

When successfully deployed, camera systems enhance overall campus safety and security, deter crime, and otherwise support the protection of people and property.

All permanent camera installations are marked with appropriate signage in line with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
