Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio A task force on campus security is making recommendations today to the University of Utah's board of trustees.

The report follows four months of research. Professor Wayne McCormack, who chaired the task force, says the main message is to get administrators more involved in preparing for anything.

"There are homicidal fanatics, there are weather emergencies, there are all kinds of things that happen in life, and we will endeavor to do the best job we can of managing those emergencies by planning ahead," McCormack explained.

But McCormack says there's no magic solution, not even in the form of text messages or other technology. He says planners now must decide what policies to put into place and figure out how to fund them.
