STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi State University police plan to install new cameras around campus including all the residence halls and parking lots.
Police Chief Vance Rice said only 30 buildings and one parking lot had cameras in them before this plan started two years ago.
He said the new camera system is clearer than the older ones and it helped in identifying the three people police were looking for earlier this week.
The police department now requires any new building being built on campus to have the new camera system in them.
Rice said the next step in the process is finding a company to install the rest of the cameras and deciding which areas need them the most.
