Theft has been the highest crime issue at BYU-Hawaii, but the problem has been reducing for the past three years, according to Anthony Pickard, manager of the Department of Public Safety. With the aid of the Information Technology Department, the two offices have installed over 300 surveillance cameras since August 2014.

Pickard, who was a special agent for the FBI for 28 years, said, “When someone comes in to report they have lost something, it helps us to go back and review our cameras to find out what happened. The incident is on the camera, so we have 95 percent success in solving the cases.”
