The University of Pretoria is one of the largest research-intensive universities in South Africa. Its Department of Security Services places a high premium on the safety and security of students, staff and property on all UP campuses.
The Department are fully committed to maintaining a safe environment that allows students to study and participate in sport, cultural and social activities with peace of mind. Existing security measures are constantly monitored and reviewed while new, innovative measures are implemented to improve the safety and security of all students and personnel.
Due to the high incidence of crime in South Africa, the Department of Security Services collaborates with the South African Police Service (SAPS), City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality and the Brooklyn SAPS Security Forum as well as with all security companies in the Brooklyn SAPS jurisdiction, in order to promote a safe environment – even outside the boundaries of the University’s campuses.
