Electronic Security

The Electronic Security Division is responsible for equipping all exterior doors to all buildings with access control devices and/or door position monitoring; all buildings have, by default, at least one card-controlled door in its secure perimeter. The Division also installs intrusion alarms, panic devices, CCTV monitoring and research equipment monitoring (i.e. freezers, incubators) for research laboratories and other restricted zones adjacent to public areas within the same building.

Please observe the following electronic security rules:

  • Doors may not be propped open
  • All electronic locking hardware should not be manipulated in a way to circumvent security
  • Children and unescorted visitors must not be admitted entrance to secure and/or restricted lab areas

The University's electronic security system is an important element in providing a safe and secure environment for education, research and patient care.  Failure to comply with alarm or access requirements, or any attempt to circumvent the electronic security system or to violate the access control policy will not be tolerated.  The Electronic Security Division has tracking software that records access to doors.  When the cause of the alarm can be attributed to an intentional act designed to circumvent the intent of the security system, the Chief of Police will be notified.  In the event mitigating factors are not provided that justify, in the opinion of the Chief of Police, the security compromise, a fee can be levied against the appropriate school for each violation.  These fees are to offset the cost of dispatching the alarm, initial police response and investigation, monitoring and resetting of the intentional security violation, follow up by the Chief of Police and the need to track the violation.   

In the event the security system has sustained damage from such an act, the cost of repair also will be charged to the school/college or program.
