Thomas Jefferson University and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Inc. as part of their overall security program, utilize a state-of-the-art access control system. The Security Department is responsible for all programming of access cards as well as the monitoring of all activity in our buildings.
This technology is utilized in our Animal Resources areas as well as Residence Halls and office buildings. The Security Response Center can monitor the activity at these installations, permit remote access via the use of CCTV and access control, and respond rapidly to any non-authorized attempts at entry.
The system also maintains an electronic journal which permits the Security Department to review activity at any of these installations as a follow-up to an investigation or any questions regarding activity in particular laboratories, etc.
The Security Department also approves all requests for conventional keys / lock installations throughout the University and Hospital.
