Insecurity Challenges, SRC President Calls For NewSecurity Post

ucc

The President of the Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of University of Cape Coast (UCC), Tony Henry Arthur has called on the management of the University to liaise with necessary stakeholders to build a befitting police station at the New Site of the university.

He says the location of the UCC police station at the Old Site is not enough to address security concerns on campus and that a befitting modern police station could be constructed at the new site to augment security on campus.

The SRC President who is soon to leave office believes that a modern police station that is close to or within the new site will deter would-be criminals. He highlighted the need during the Launch of the SRC Week Celebration under the theme, “55 years as a partner in development and a front of advocacy”.

Background

The students of the University of Cape Coast have continually complained about the insecurity challenge they face, with lectures starting as early as 6:00 am, students are to avail themselves regardless of the distance between their various hostels and lecture theatres. Also, lectures close as late as between 6 pm and 7 pm, students who live in the outskirts of the campus are almost set up to be robbed.

Moving forward

The management of the school announced their intention to recruit cadet personnel who will be graduating this year as security persons to augment the number of security men on campus.

This announcement has received mixed reactions from students especially from the members of the cadet.
