The command center on campus police now has two large wall monitors that present multi-image displays, and two desks that provide additional monitoring.“We‘re going to be updating our dispatch center with additional monitors so that we can monitor more cameras at once, plus upgrading and updating the software for the programs for the camera usage,” campus Police and Safety Supervisor Sgt. Bill Abernathie Abernathie said in the PCC Courier report.The $165,516 upgrading contract was awarded last week to Glendale-based security systems company Sierra Group, which won over two other companies that were considered out of 11 vendors who submitted bids since November 2015.Sierra Group was chosen “as the lowest responsive, responsible bidder meeting all requirements of the bid,” according to the consent item approved by the Board of Trustees.Aside from the additional cameras and monitors, the upgrade will also include a server with increased data storage for the Enterprise Video Management System which archives video footage that may be required for crime or misdemeanor investigations.With the security upgrade, campus police hopes to reduce the number of car thefts, car damage and other incidents that occur mostly in the parking structures and parking areas.The PCC Courier said a student reported in January that his car was hit while it was parked in Lot 5, and another student reported that her vehicle’s passenger window was shattered while she was in class. In early February, a parking permit was reported stolen from a car, and there have been reports of car casings.Sierra Group specializes in commercial electronic security as one of its core competencies and has provided services for such clients such as Bank of the West, Citibank, Los Angeles Film School and the Hermosa Beach’s Police Department.The company plans to start installation at PCC this month and complete the project by June 30, 2016.

4 reasons your members don’t trust you

first_img 78SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: Details Are there trust issues with your credit union? Have you given your members a reason to trust you? Sometimes loyalty doesn’t come easy. If you’re having trouble getting your members to trust you, here are a few reasons why they may not be on board.You’re too quiet on social mediaYou probably have a presence on a number of social media platforms. Are you doing a good job handling communication on all of these pages? Spend some time reviewing Facebook and Twitter, and make sure you’re responding to comments and questions in a timely and effective manner. Social media is a big deal to consumers and it should be a big deal to you.Your employees don’t like your membersThere are varying levels of “people persons.” Every employee won’t be perfect, but you should still aim to hire employees who enjoy working with people and don’t mind taking the time to help members solve the problems that they bring to their credit union. Don’t let an unfriendly employee chase members away.They’re not getting personalized serviceIf your members aren’t getting the products and services they need, it’s probably because you’re not listening. Give your members the chance to give feedback on where they are in life, and what they need from you, then present them with relevant products and services. Show them how you can help, instead of telling them you want their money.You’re not up-to-dateMillennials are the hot demographic at the moment. While it doesn’t mean that Boomers and Gen Xers aren’t important, Millennials are the ones who are starting to make more and more money moves. This Gen Y generation is starting to buy houses, have families, buy minivans and realize the need for life insurance. They’re a very tech-savvy generation, so be where they are. Make sure you have a mobile app, and make it a good one. Millennials enjoy being able to do all their banking functions with their smartphone and if you’re not onboard you’re going to get left behind. Don’t get left behind.last_img read more

That’s an area we can improve. Bowlers backed it up brilliantly,” said Bangladesh skipper Shakib.Jarvis, who claimed 3-32, removed Mahmudullah and Mosaddek Hossain in consecutive deliveries in the final over to create a chance of a hat-trick.Mohammad Saifuddin hit six runs off the final two balls to ensure Bangladesh posted a strong total.Zimbabwe captain Hamilton Masakadza lamented his side’s batting in the first 10 overs.“If you lose half your side within 10 overs, you’re always behind the game,” he said.last_img read more

Sabahn Quaye: ‘Any idiot’ can coach Hearts of Oak

first_imgBlack Stars team manager and currently the operations manager of Hearts of Oak,Sabahn Quaye believes ‘any idiot’ can coach the Ghanaian giants because the structures in the club are already set up for success.The Phobians are struggling to name a permanent coach to replaceMohammed Polo which has left them without a trainer since the start of their pre-season training.Talks with ex-Dwarfs coach Prof Mintah to take over the side fell through while Herbert Addo is refusing to accept the offer tabled by the Accra-based giants.Despite the absence of coaches since the start of the pre-season last week, Quaye says the team is working well because the structures for success are already up and running at the club.“Excuse my language, any idiot can coach Hearts of Oak, provided the system is working well with discipline in the team,” Quaye told Kumasi-based Metro FM.“If God says it is Herbert Addo, who should take over as coach of Hearts of Oak, so be it and if he says no, so be it. “All the technical team members from Steve Bugri to me are experienced and if it is Herbert Addo who would be appointed as coach, he is also experienced.“The head coach, although not named officially, has been working hand in hand with Steve Bugri, the assistant coach and is expected to join us next week.”Hearts are secretly embarking on a massive recruitment drive to augment the squad to the challenges ahead.last_img read more
