Community Relations and Crime Prevention

A Security Official Speaking with community members at a tabling event.

The Community Safety Department’s Campus Relations Officials collaborate with individuals and groups on and off campus on projects to promote safety. Regularly, Campus Relations Officials are called on to train and give safety presentations to student, staff and faculty organizations that promote 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 people to commit crimes. The CPTED program introduces ways to deter crime by changing the design of buildings and public spaces.

Event Planning

For on-campus events, the Department works with other departments to provide safety and security event assessments. To learn more about event assessment procedures, please contact Campus Relations and Crime Prevention at cro@yorku.ca .

To inquire about booking a space or planning an event on campus, please see the Office of Temporary Use of Space or, if you are a member of a student club, then visit YU Connect.
