JIPMER security section is overall in-charge of the security of the JIPMER hospital and campus. The security section started functioning from the inception of the Hospital in the year 1957. It has started with the strength of 42 security guards in 1957 and it was increased to 105 which included 82 regular and 30 temporary security guards in 1995. At present, with regular superannuation of the staff and without replacement due to ban on recruitment of group D posts the number of security staff has come down to 41. In order to augment the dwindled strength outsourcing of security personnel has been started for certain areas of the hospital.
