UNC-Chapel Hill Interim Chancellor Lee Roberts says campus safety is one of his top priorities. Those concerns have been top of mind since last semester’s fatal shooting of Professor Zijie Yan. Part of Roberts’ plan is the installation of license plate readers across campus. UNC recently signed a contract with surveillance company Flock Safety to put up 23 license plate reader cameras.
