SECURITY ALERT

ROBBERY ATTACKS ON MEMBERS OF THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY

 

 

Management’s attention has been drawn to recent robbery attacks on members of the University community by certain unscrupulous persons, including motor cycle riders on the University’s main campus as well as in the residential areas.

 

Management would like to assure members of the University Community and the general public that a number of measures have been put in place to enhance safety and security on campus. Additional security procedures, including random checks will be enforced during the on-going GUSA games.

 

While management is making the necessary arrangement to ensure a safe and secured environment for the community to go about their duties and activities, members are advised to take note of the following safety and security tips:

 

▪ Employees and students should carry their ID cards at all times.

Employees who commute to work with motor bikes are advised to carry their staff ID with them at all times for inspection by the Security.

▪ Do not use unapproved routes.
▪ Do not walk alone especially at night.
▪ Be wary of strangers.
▪ Avoid poorly lit routes at night.
▪ Do jogging and other outdoor exercises in groups.
▪ Do not entertain people you do not know.
▪ Beware of suspicious taxi drivers and motor riders.
▪ Beware of pick pockets and con-men (confidence tricksters).
▪ Do not entertain without caution, people soliciting money and other support.

SAFETY AND SECURITY AT GAMES VILLAGE
▪ Ensure that your doors are locked if room mates are not there.
▪ Report or question any suspicious character(s) loitering around the Hall.
▪ Always call on the Porters or Security around if in doubt.
▪ Report issues concerning electricity, water and fire to the Porters or the various hot lines.


Further, members of the community are urged to cooperate with the security agencies in their collective efforts to ensure a safe and secure environment on campus by reporting suspicious persons to the University Security, and also to be vigilant.
