UFS announces new security measures

The management of the University of the Free State (UFS) today, 10 March 2005, announced the introduction of a security guard at each of the women’s residences on the main campus in Bloemfontein.

According to the Rector and Vice-Chancellor, Prof Frederick Fourie, this step and other measures that are being planned are aimed at improving the overall security situation on the main campus. 

“The security guard at each woman’s residence will be on duty from late afternoon to midnight from Mondays to Thursdays and from late afternoon until 01:00 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays,” said Prof Fourie.

Suggestions for further measures to implement security services at certain areas or selected pedestrian routes on the main campus will be considered early in the second term.  Following this, the main campus’ security strategy will again be discussed and reviewed as a matter of urgency.

“The aim of this all is to again strengthen and sustain the main campus, within reasonable limits, as a safe environment,” said Prof Fourie.
