A week-long Safety Campaign kicked off in full force across all CPUT campuses this week.

Organised by Protection Services the operation aims to beef up safety and security awareness  helping to create a safer learning environment for staff and students.

The campaign started with the security team handing out bookmarks highlighting emergency numbers and safety tips.

Later Bellville SAPS Dog Unit did a live simulation of a drug inspection with trained sniffer dogs. Protection Services Department head Shabir Laing says students and staff can expect a bumper week of similar activities like fire drills and increased security checks and talks by the SAPS and local Community Policing Forums.

Bellville Operations Coordinator Ettiene Saaiman says some of the priority points include crime on campus, the role of reporting criminal activities and incidents and the support structure available to victims.

There will also be talks and demonstrations around all the campuses and at student residences, as well as information stalls where anyone can get vital information to assist them when faced with an unsafe situation.

"With this campaign, we want to maintain consistency on all campuses and be visible to everyone who enters, leaves or resides within the campus," says Saaiman.

"Everyone from staff, students and visitors should feel that they are in a safe and secure environment, and where that is not the case, we want to advise what they can do to ensure their safety."
