I hope everyone is keeping warm today! Here are a few things to pass along from Public Safety:

  • As a follow up from last semester’s sessions, Public Safety will be hosting several town hall meetings for the campus community. This is a great opportunity to meet your Public Safety officers, ask questions, and share suggestions, comments, and concerns. As always, I encourage you to actively participate in safety and security around campus, so I anticipate a good turnout! All sessions will be held in Stern Center room 206. Refreshments and snacks will be served. Below are the date and times for the town hall meetings:
    • 02/19/14 12pm Faculty session
    • 02/24/14 2:30pm Staff session
    • 02/27/14 3:30pm Student session
  • On February 20, 2015, the Student Government Association will be hosting a bike auction. The bike auction will be held at the Stern Center from 11am-3pm. Representatives from Public Safety will be on scene to register bicycles.
  • As a reminder, the first priority in any emergency situation is to get to a safe location. However, time-permitting, make an effort to have important items such as keys, medicine, and identification easily accessible. In the event of a fire alarm, weather emergency, or other evacuation, bring these items with you if possible.
  • Public Safety will be holding a R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) class this spring. R.A.D. is a series of self-defense classes for women. This program will be open to students, faculty, staff, and community members. Please stop by Public Safety headquarters or email to sign up. Below are the dates and times for the spring class:
  • Tuesday, 3/17/2015, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Thursday, 3/19/2015, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Tuesday, 3/24/2015, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Thursday, 3/26/2015, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm


  • For those living in electronic-access buildings, particularly Warren Place, Kelly House, and George Street Apartments, please be mindful when entering and exiting the residence hall. In order to ensure the safety of the residents, passing the door for others, also known as “piggy-backing” is prohibited. All residents must use their FOB to enter the building.
  • If you have not already, please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for departmental news, upcoming events, and other important information. If you are having trouble accessing our pages, please make sure you are signed into your social media account.

Crime Prevention Tip:

During the cold winter months, drivers may be tempted to warm up their cars while they stay warm inside. Cars left running, unlocked, and unattended are quick and easy targets for thieves. Never leave your car running or the keys in the ignition when are away from it, even for “just a minute.”

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Take Care and Be Safe,

PSO Madeline M. Sloan
