"I am very pleased that the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine has achieved the Secured Environments award. This rigorous auditing process confirms the benefits of our long-standing effort to create, manage, and support a secure and safe environment for all of our personnel, students, and visitors.
LSHTM’s security team is dedicated to working jointly internally as well as with external community and policing forces on a number of activities and campaigns reflected in this award. These include technological advancements, risk assessments, training, and enhanced data and monitoring, amongst others.
During the past year, this also extended to include flexible adjustments and responses to the novel demands of COVID-19, with our team delivering and supporting best practices at the nexus of public health and security.
I must thank the security team for their collaborative approach towards a safe and secure environment, and Secured Environments for recognising and rewarding achievements within the sector."
Michael Swierczek, Head of Security, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
