YorkU increases safety measures after assaults


York University has increased its safety measures in response to incidents on the Keele Campus. Three cases of assault have been reported this month, with the latest being an assault with a weapon. YorkU will be taking a variety of steps to protect its community members, including increasing York Security Services patrols during evening hours, temporarily contracting third-party security services and Toronto Police Services officers, requesting that TPS patrol the campus during the night, and expanding active real-time monitoring using CCTV cameras. YorkU VP, Finance and Administration Carol McAulay also encouraged community members to take precautions and to use the safety resources supplied by the university.
