ESSEC and the Val d'Oise Prefecture strengthen their cooperation on security with the signing of a new protocol

On Monday, June 20, 2022, Philippe Court, Prefect of the Val d'Oise Region, and Vincenzo Vinzi, Dean & President of ESSEC Business School, signed a protocol to reinforce security and public tranquility around the school. This document sets out a number of commitments by both parties to strengthen security around the Cergy campus.

This is a major milestone in the cooperation between ESSEC Business School and the French State on security issues. Meeting at ESSEC's K-lab, Philippe Court, Prefect of the Val d'Oise Region, and Vincenzo Vinzi, Dean and President of ESSEC, ratified several months of joint work by signing a protocol to reinforce security and public tranquility in the surroundings of the school. The signing took place in the presence of Jean-Paul Jeandon, Mayor of Cergy and President of the Cergy-Pontoise agglomeration, Loïc Alixant, Departmental Director of Public Security, and Colonel Quentin Petit, Commander of the Val-d'Oise Departmental Gendarmerie Force.

This partnership formally sets out the mutual commitments between ESSEC and the French State, around three priorities:

●     Reinforcing security around the ESSEC campus;

●    Ensuring tranquility and security at night on campus and in residential areas;

●     Increasing the cooperative actions of the security continuum. 

"The tranquility and security of all are a priority, a major concern. The actors of the territory must mobilize alongside the French State for an ever stronger action. The partnership with ESSEC is a fine example of this," said Philippe Court, Prefect of the Val d'Oise.

"Through this protocol signed with the Val d'Oise Prefecture, ESSEC is reaffirming its territorial roots by contributing, alongside the public authorities, to making Cergy a safe and fulfilling place to study, live and work," said Vincenzo Vinzi, Dean and President of ESSEC Business School.

A number of concrete actions will be deployed very quickly, including the reinforcement of the visible presence of law enforcement officers on the public roads and spaces around the campus. An annual monitoring committee will be held at the beginning of each new academic year, chaired by the chief of staff of the Val-d'Oise prefecture. This committee will be tasked with assessing the scope of these commitments, deciding which should be renewed and defining any new commitments that may be required. This signature is part of a continuous improvement approach by ESSEC, which works daily on the safety of its students by regularly investing in new equipment and human resources.
