TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Security measures have been put in place at Pima Community College to help make staff and students feel more secure.

PCC's Northwest Campus is one of the first locations to receive these new security updates.  New push button locks and further security measures have been installed on all six locations across Tucson.

The new locks allow staff to secure the door with just a push of a button, the older locks required a key for both the outside and inside. 

According to Bill Ward, the Vice-Chancellor for Facilities, staff requested better security measures and the board granted funds - $250,000 for the new door locks alone.

$2.7 million in funding has been set aside for security improvements to include a new lighting system, better fencing and more security personnel plus additional programs.
