"Bournemouth University are delighted to have been awarded the Secured Environments Accreditation for the third time. Being a part of the Secured Environments scheme has provided a framework for our security processes, while evidencing the University’s commitment to providing a safe and secure environment for all staff and students.
The Secured Environments auditing process is professionally managed. An auditor checks that appropriate policies and procedures are in place, but more importantly, holds focus groups to ensure that staff who work within the security teams as well as groups of stakeholders from across the University are able to provide their view on how well security is managed.
The security team are all committed to maintaining safety and security, so it is great to have our efforts verified by an external consultant.
The University is currently undertaking an ambitious development programme and our Capital Development colleagues work closely with the Dorset Police Secured by Design Advisor to ensure that from the design stage, new buildings meet approved security standards in order to achieve Secured by Design status."
