Whitehouse, B.; Patel, M.; Gofton, K.
Recent years have shown an increase in arson, theft, and vandalism committed in educational facilities resulting in a need for managers to formulate security policies. This document provides technical advice and guidance on policy for the design, specification, installation, maintenance, operation, and management of closed circuit TV (CCTV) systems in all types of educational facilities. It also includes case studies and gives elemental costs which allow estimates to be made. The appendix examines CCTV system hardware, including cameras and lenses, monitors, cabling and wiring, and types of video recorders. (GR)
