Contract Security Services

UAPS Security Agents support UAPS Peace Officer operations by providing a uniformed presence, performing observe and report duties such as building patrols, site security, access control, event security, and interacting with members of the public (staff, students, guests of the U of A).



Protection of People

As a UAPS Security member your highest priority is the protection of people. This includes staff, students and guests of the University of Alberta. Ways you are able to ensure protection is by site patrols, identifying hazards and access control.



Protection of Property

Another priority of Security Agents at the U ofA is to protect university property. Security Agent presence may deter crime, unwanted activity, and individuals who are not permitted on property. As well, active patrols, access control, and hazard identification can keep property safe and deter unwanted activity.



UAPS prescribes a community policing approach. As such, the presence of Security
Agents helps to build community relationships. Throughout the course of their duties, Security Agents are encouraged to speak with members of the community, whether it?s simply saying hello, providing direction to those who are lost, or offering crime prevention advice. Creating a favorable reputation of the University and UAPSis imperative.
