On Tuesday the University Assembly of Cornell passed two resolutions in attempt to increase campus security. The first resolution, Resolution 6, states that the Building Security Committee of Cornell should provide security guidelines for constructors on what security features need to be installed in new campus buildings. The second resolution, Resolution 7, proposes that the University Facilities Services and the Cornell University Police Department increase security by installing more campus surveillance systems and access control systems. The resolutions were drafted by Joy Chai '14 alongside CUPD chief Kathy Zoner. Zoner has stated that over the years the City of Ithaca has experienced an increase in crime rates.
