Managing security on campus is a complex task for security teams, extending not only from managing the physical security of the campus, such as through real-time wide CCTV coverage, threats and emergency response procedures, but also towards managing the health and well-being of students whose behaviour might put themselves or others in danger.

The 8th Annual Campus Security & Safety Conference will focus on the different areas of security that security teams have to face on a day-to-day basis, with presentations and case studies of first-hand experiences to highlight some of the key challenges and solutions to improve the security of campuses and the safety of students. 


 Topics will include:

  • Evidence based policing on campus
  • The challenge of campus security and safety across a national footprint
  • Assessing campus security operations
  • Threats and Hoaxes: How campuses should assess threats made against them
  • Ways to identify threats and problem behaviour, and hold individuals accountable for their actions
  • Safety campaigns that aim to engage students


Speakers include:

  • Priscilla Stevens-Guiney, Senior Executive Officer, International and Services Division, CQUniversity Australia
  • Lt. John Weinstein, College Command Staff, Northern Virginia Community College
  • Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate, Commander Eastern Beaches LAC, Corporate Sponsor for the Safety and Wellbeing of International Students, New South Wales Police Force
  • Robby Magyar, National Welfare Officer, National Union of Students
