National recognition for Rob Barlow of Security Services

Patrol Officer Rob Barlow has received recognition by a leading professional body for his work carrying out a complete audit of all the CCTV cameras that Security Services operates – a key part of the team’s efforts to gain certification for compliance with recent government guidelines.

Rob received his Certificate of Excellence from the Association of University Chief Security Officers (AUCSO), the leading organisation for security professionals working in higher and further education in the UK and Europe. He was successfully nominated for AUCSO’s Security Initiative of the Year award for 2016 by Deputy Head of Security Darrell Moss.

‘Rob has demonstrated commitment and a great deal of patience whilst carrying out this work,’ Darrell commented. He praised the quality of the work Rob has done unsupervised, as well as his dedication to the task and openness in taking on board suggestions to improve the project.

Security Services recently installed a new digital CCTV platform, which greatly improves the quality of CCTV images and gives the network of cameras much more potential to grow, with the possibility of incorporating cameras run by departments and colleges.
