Policies for Issuing Security Warnings
Security warnings are issued to students and employees through emails and in the Warrior Watch, which is a quarterly newsletter dealing with security issues. It is sent electronically to the entire campus, with hard copies posted in the Residence Halls, Apartments, and Academic Buildings.
Public Safety Student Worker Program
Students should never walk home alone at night. The Public Safety Student Worker Program was developed to support the public safety office in assisting to provide a safe and secure campus. The Public Safety Student Workers will provide escorts for safety and security reasons to students, faculty and staff on campus and in the near off-campus areas from 10 am – 2 pm and 6 pm – 12 am on weekdays. On weekends, escorts are available from 8 pm – 2 am. When not providing escorts by foot or vehicle, the student workers will be visible performing walking patrols on campus to observe and report any suspicious activity to Public Safety.
The student workers are equipped with red jackets and T-shirts, flashlights and a two-way radio which allows them to have contact with the Public Safety Office. If you need an escort for safety and security reasons please call the Public Safety Office at ext. 8500. The Public Safety Officers will provide escorts during the time not covered by the student workers.
Currently, we are working with the Public Safety Student Worker Program to enhance the safety and security of the college campus.
Incidents should be reported to the Public Safety Office at 443-8500, and to the Student Affairs Office at 443-8854.
Several phones are located throughout the main buildings on campus for intra-campus communication. These phones can be used to dial for outside emergency service by dialing 911. All of these phones are clearly labeled with instructions for dialing emergency phone numbers both on campus and off campus.
There are sheets posted around campus with important emergency numbers. Please note these postings around campus so that you are able to refer to them in an emergency. In addition, all student dormitory rooms and apartments on campus were given sheets with on-campus emergency numbers. There are also boxes located in the underground parking structures in case assistance is needed. Please use these in an emergency situation only!
Crisis plans are available in every building at the main desks. The building employees should be aware of this plan and be ready to use it in an emergency. These guides contain information on handling various crimes, including sexual assault, rap, as well as natural disasters. Included in these guides is a phone notification tree. Please note, in any emergency, the Vice President of Public Relations is the only person authorized to speak to the press.
