"Following an extensive restructuring and two years hard work I am extremely proud that the University of Sunderland’s Security Team has been recognised by the Secured Environments award. That this has been achieved during a global pandemic demonstrates that security is being delivered to a very high standard and shows the University to be a committed and professional organisation. Moreover, being audited by an external, independent assessor clearly proves that we are dedicated to delivering a secure and safe environment for all students, staff and visitors.
Achieving this award has involved a collaborative approach from the Vice Chancellor, Senior Management and numerous colleagues who supported the Security Team in their endeavours. In addition the guidance we received from the Secured Environments team was focused and positive. My thanks go to everyone involved."
Colin Ferguson, Security Manager, University of Sunderland
