He said: “I’m delighted that our SafeGuarding Service has won yet another high-profile award as ‘In House Security Team of the Year category’ at the Security & Fire Excellence Awards this week.  This is the second consecutive year that we have won an award from the security industry leading body. 

“Last year we were the first university ever to win an award from that international organisation.  To win again this year in a different category is a testimony to the professionalism and dedication of our team, it also consolidates our position in higher education setting the benchmark for security and safeguarding.”
