Would Keyless Locks Have Prevented Sexual Assault at Dartmouth University?
A columnist at Valley News believes Dartmouth University could’ve prevented sexual assault on campus with keyless locks. Valley News is a news source from the Upper Valley in West Lebanon, NH. They are the local news source for communities surrounding Dartmouth University.
Valley News has been covering a rape trial that was recently acquitted in March 2014. The sexual assault occurred in one of the newly built dorm facilities.
GoKeyless was recently mentioned as a source in the article discussing the many advantages of using keyless entry for university dorm residents. It is a passionate argument for future safety enhancements that university should have made in 2006 when the facilities were built. The project costing $41.4 million has people questioning construction planning: “I wonder if Dartmouth wishes it had spent a little less on elements that reflect the college’s “traditional Georgian architecture” and a little more on security.” says Jim Kenyon.
Valley News interviewed our Marketing Director, Trent Bamberry, as they researched the benefits and costs of keyless locks. The article was written with a sense of frustration that this event could of even occurred. The author provided solutions that would hopefully make their way to Dartmouth administrators for future security enhancements.
We here at GoKeyless have been able to help offsite and on-site student housing operators across the United States make the transition from traditional keyed locks to state-of-the-art keyless access systems. Project locations include at THE Ohio State University, Indiana University, University of Massachusetts and Wright State University.
