The aim of LJMU's Security Service is to create a safe and secure environment by safeguarding the University’s students, staff, visitors, property and reputation.

The University Security Centre is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Security Centre monitors all CCTV, Intruder and Fire Alarms Systems across the University.  There are four teams of Security Officers each managed by a Security Supervisor providing 24/7 response across all campus areas.  All Security personnel have received extensive training and there are trained first aiders and fire marshals available at all times.

The University has a dedicated Merseyside Police Officer working with on-campus security services. His role is to offer advice and assistance in crime related incidents, to assist in detection and prevention of crime and is a direct liaison between community partners, student union and Merseyside Police.

Security administration deals with IT, access control, CCTV, public enquiries, lost and found property, security advice, car park permits and ID cards.
