The department is responsible for the effective enforcement of these policies and procedures.

We have integrated modern electronic security and surveillance systems to provide the University with optimum coverage 24 hours a day. This allows our students, staff, and visitors, peace of mind while they stay around with as little worry as possible.

We recognize that the response of security staff to all security-related incidents and requests needs to be people-focused.
