Alarm Systems


Intrusion detection alarm systems aid in security and are monitored by the Radford University Police Department. These systems include perimeter contacts, motion detection, duress devices as well as moisture detection. Areas where these systems are installed must be approved by the Electronic Security Advisory Group (ESAG) and a security review must be completed by the RU Police Department.
