Norfolk State University Police HQs

Higher Education

This HBA design is a new, two-story campus police headquarters for Norfolk State University. Responsible for students, staff and faculty, it also contains the Hearings Offices for the Division of Student Affairs. The building is functionally zoned with the Public entering a first floor Lobby/Waiting area and with access to the remainder of the building controlled 24 hours a day by the Police Dispatcher. The facility totals 20,894 SF.

The design provides a closed circuit television (CCTV) system for security and access control, including exterior cameras, interior cameras, and a computerized monitoring system, monitors and a recording device.

A card access control system controls access to selected doors throughout the facility. The security dispatch office will serve as the primary hub for all signal monitoring. The Facility Master Monitoring Station was relocated to this facility from the existing Police Station so as to monitor the Campus-Wide Fire Alarm.
