Safety and Crime Prevention Programming, Educational Services and Resources

The Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management (Public Safety) sponsors a variety of programs and presentations throughout the year to inform students and employees about emergency management, fire safety and campus security programs, procedures, and practices. A common theme of all the security awareness and crime prevention programs is to encourage students and employees to be responsible for their own security and the security of others.

Programming includes the following: Behind Closed Doors (familiarization with drugs, weapons and trends); Self-Defense Workshop; Sexual Assault Familiarization and Awareness; Alcohol and other Drugs; Don’t Just Stand There (bystander emergency skills workshop ); Emergency Preparedness and Response (College Emergency Response Plan and Crisis Communications); Fire Extinguisher Training and Burn Pod demonstration; familiarization with local, state, federal laws, college policies, and Student Code of Conduct; Safety and Security Awareness (topics dependent upon request); Risk Assessment for student events, class projects, and community events, to include Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) building/workspace assessment and corrective action, to name a few. Additionally, Public Safety personnel chair and/or participate in the College’s Safety Awareness Committee and the Advisory Committee on Campus Security and Campus Life.
