TROY, Ala. (AP) - Funding problems are slowing plans for updated
campus security at Troy University.
Improvements have been in the works since a student was kidnapped near campus in January. The campus recently completed
installing new outdoor lights, which makes some students feel safer, but a plan to install 15 new security cameras around the Troy campus is slow moving due to limited funding.
The dean of students, Herbert Reeves, says work on additional security is on hold until more money becomes available. Reeves says
the new cameras will be tested on campus during the summer and will be in place by the fall semester, once funds for operation and
installation are in place.
A Troy student was kidnapped from her off-campus residence in
January, prompting the additional security.
