UI wants better security cameras at Kinnick

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

University of Iowa officials want to upgrade the security camera system at Kinnick Stadium and are looking for funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Director of Public Safety Chuck Green says more locations in the stadium should be monitored when the massive crowds flock to Kinnick on game days.

Green says that if federal money is secured, new cameras would be installed before next football season starts. The current cameras are stationary, but the new cameras would be able to pan, tilt and zoom.

The parking lots would not have security cameras.

The university has been using video monitors inside the stadium since 2006.
