Campus Security System Upgrade
CBC endeavours to provide a safe and secure environment where staff, student and visitor wellbeing are foremost in our thinking when considering how we can enhance the safety of all persons on site at CBC. In keeping with this ethos of wellbeing and security; CBC will be upgrading and increasing the number of security cameras on site at the Westbury Street Campus to mitigate the risk of harm and enhance CBC’s ability to quickly respond to or mitigate any activities that may pose a risk to the wellbeing of all persons on site at CBC. This upgrade is planned to take place over the next 3 months and is not expected to adversely impact any normal operations at CBC.
