Results Achieved to Date

  • Results from Lloyd Rhodes,7/1/09

    This team concluded its charter very quickly, ahead of the requested date. This was because of the dedication of the members, and a desire of all for success. The outcome of this team was a presentation to create a new business unit in OPP, with dotted line to University Police, that will oversee all electronic security/access control processes, in order to ratchet up the focus on safety and security of campus students, faculty and staff. The expectation is greatly enhanced safety, featuring a better specification for access control for campus buildings. Other benefits will be better satisfaction for the aforementioned campus population as a result of increased safety.

    The new business unit was initiated with the hiring of a manager (qualified as a Certified Security Professional), who started 4/1/08, and the formulation of his staff, and initiation of security assessments, specification reviews, etc.
