Community Relations and Crime Prevention

A Security Official Giving a Presentation to People in a ClassroomThe department’s Campus Relations Officials act as liaisons with individuals and groups on and off campus, working collaboratively with them on projects to promote safety. They are regularly called on to do training and safety presentations to student, staff and faculty organizations, promoting dialogue about crime prevention.

The department compiles and analyzes statistical information to formulate crime prevention programs and services. The department also fosters Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) to make it harder, riskier, or less rewarding for offenders to commit crime. The CPTED program introduces ways to deter crime by changing the design of buildings and public spaces.
