As Campus Safety Awareness Month continues at Case Western Reserve University, the university community is being reminded that there are many resources and tips available to help students, faculty and staff remain safe as they study, work and socialize.
Case Police and Security Services Chief Art Hardee said safety is a top priority. "We've saturated the campus grounds with officers on foot, bikes, and on T3 scooters. We have 21 police officers and a total of 25 security guards who patrol inside and outside campus buildings." In addition, the University Circle Inc. Police Department has 25 police officers patrolling the University Circle community who assist university police officers.
A special emphasis is being put on safety awareness, programs and tips in September. The campus community has an opportunity to get a variety of safety information in one location during a Campus Safety Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, September 10, in the Thwing Center atrium.
The fair will showcase programs such as Safe Ride and the campus security escort service, personal alarms, Rape Aggression Defense, CaseEMS and CaseWARN, the university's emergency alert service. In addition, students will be able to register their bikes and receive free U locks. Representatives from campus police and security services, the University Circle Police Department, and more will on hand to share resources and tips with the campus community.
