My Dear Students,
Each institution should ensure safety and security for all of its staffs and students as a top priority on each and every day. On that account, BracU gives the highest importance to ensure the safety and security of its students while they are on campus. Wearing a visible Identity Card is the easiest and effective way to recognize a bonafide BracU member. Besides, wearing of ID badge is a pride for any member of the institution. Currently, the option of Digital ID has not been proved as an effective tool as one can not be identified instantly during her/his presence in the campus. As such, the members of the security monitoring team is not in a position to identify whether s/he is a BracU student or an intruder unless s/he is asked to show her/his mobile app which is embarrassing for both.
As such, wearing identification badge has become a security “best practice” for any institution including BracU. Some of the usefulness of wearing ID card is enumerated below:
a. When an ID card is visible, everyone knows at a glance who belongs and who does not.
b. The ID card should be easily seen and presented to any staff member or person of authority seeking identification.
c. This can be especially important for authorized security personnel who may not be familiar with all the students but will know who is who at a glance in an emergency situation.
d. It is important for students to wear ID card, so that on a day to day basis teachers and staff can identify them.
e. The use of Student ID authorizes a student to be on campus, increasing site security while swiftly detecting unauthorized visitors.
I view of the above, the validity of Digital ID will be treated as cancelled from May 29, 2019. Students not in a possession of a BracU HARD COPY ID card are requested to get their ID card from the Security Office by May 28, 2019. ID card so issued to be worn on a breakaway lanyard hanging from the neck.
