SSU has completed the installation of the “Emergency Call System” at 137 women’s restrooms in all buildings in the SECOM Security Area. The installation of the “Emergency Call System” has been made to prevent crimes such as sexual violence in toilets as well as to respond quickly to incidents and accidents due to the recent increase in violent crimes against women.
The alarm bell was installed in each compartment and near the sink inside the toilet. Lightning lights will sound when the alarm bell is pressed, and alarms will be activated in the CCTV(closed circuit television) situation room at the SSU and the headquarters of SECOM. In addition, as soon as the alarm is activated, a SECOM agent at SSU is dispatched to the scene. Ham Min-soo, a member of the General Staff Personnel Team in charge of security affairs, said, “We are aware of the growing anxiety of Soongsilians due to the ‘Dongduk Women’s University case’ last year and sexual issues such as hidden cameras inside the restroom. If this event actually occurred, it would be necessary for Soongsilians to act quickly by pressing the alarm bell. The entrance to the restroom is equipped with a sticker that reads “Emergency Call System Installation Restroom.” Ham said “We can function to discourage criminals and prevent incidents in advance”.
