Our mission is to provide the best possible security, car parking and risk management service to the University, its estate and its stakeholders, be they internal or external to the organisation.
Our key aims for 2012/13 are as follows
- To contain crime levels at 2011/12 figures of 209 offences or below.
- To ensure attendance targets are met based on service levels.
- To achieve re-certification of Secured Environments award
- To continue rationalisation of all CCTV systems.
The University is a 'Secured Environment', under the Association of Chief Police Officers' (ACPO) scheme. This holistic audit looked at six different security 'principles' looking in depth at how the University provides a security and risk management service. The detailed survey canvassed staff via online surveys and focus groups as well as examining documents and policies together with our track record for tackling crime problems. The award demonstrates the significant investment the University has made in ensuring the safety and security of all its staff, students and visitors. The University hopes to achieve re-certification in 2012. For more information, please click on the logo to the right.’
