In an ongoing effort to improve security on the University of Guyana campuses, the institution has implemented a Security Department, managed by, Mr. Hugh Gibson. As a team we work closely with senior officers Guyana Police Force and the external security service on campus to identify security issues facing the University, to implement and enhances security management in every area across the university network. In 2013, there were several reports of robberies on the campus and the administration has responded to calls from students and staff to put measures in place to beef up security. In this regard, measures to improve security on the campuses have been put in place.
Additional purposes of this department include the installation of additional lighting, deployment of guards in parking areas, and CCTV Cameras and more recently, stricter rules on entry and exit of staff, students and visitors to the campus ensuring that students and staff adhere to the rule of wearing their ID badges while on the campus.
The department also has responsibilities for all I.D.C.E’s and campuses within the network.
