New Security Manager continues to keep crime at bay

09 Jun 2011 16:26:57

Barry Regan recently joined The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust as the new Security Manager. Barry has more than 22 years’ experience with South Yorkshire Police force and worked closely with the previous Security Manager Cliff Morrison who recently left the Trust to work in Security for the whole of the Yorkshire and Humber area. 

Barry says: “The Security team at the Trust do an amazing job and we worked quite closely together when I was at South Yorkshire Police. As with any large organisation, there used to be some issues with vehicle and other petty crime, but they have worked tirelessly over the last few years to stamp this out. Rotherham Hospital has a very low rate of crime, which is really impressive considering there are so many people coming and going all the time. 

“I’m looking forward to building on this success and continuing to keep rates of crime at the hospital and its other estates in the Rotherham area really low. This is an on-going challenge as there will always be people looking to prosper from crime, especially given the current economic climate. I would like to remind people to help us by making sure they exercise the same caution with their possessions when they visit the hospital as they would if they were out shopping etc. 

Barry adds: “Coming to hospital can be a difficult time for some people and it is easy to forget the most simple security rules. Visitors and patients should make sure they lock their cars, move any tempting equipment like sat navs or mobile phones out of view and keep their valuables with them at all times. I would also urge people to help us by keeping an eye out for any strange activity and if anyone sees anything suspicious, please let the Security team know. 

“We already have rigorous security measures in place to stamp out crime at the Trust, but we need everyone’s help to keep crime rates as low as possible in the future.
