Cash security

Safes, deposits and money matters

In many respects, cash is the most attractive item for thieves. Please consider the following recommendations carefully:

  • Limit access to the cash compartment or safe.
  • Keep the keys to the cash in a secure location.
  • Lock up cash and take keys with you when leaving the area.
  • Memorize the combination to the safe.
  • Prevent people from seeing where petty cash is kept when reimbursing expenditures.
  • Endorse all cheques "For deposit only to McGill University" immediately upon receipt.
  • It is recommended that deposits be made for all money. All money must be secured overnight in a locked compartment.
  • Money for deposit should not be held over the weekend.
