Case #: 230095

Time: 2058
Description: Cannabis Use or Possession
Location: Chittick

Notes: While performing a campus lighting survey with some students, the director of Community Safety encountered the odor of cannabis near the Chittick residence hall. The director observed two individuals standing under the smoking shelter, one of whom appeared to be holding a cannabis joint. When approached by the director, the student confirmed that they had been smoking cannabis. The director reminded the student that smoking cannabis on Reed property makes the campus less inclusive and unusable for many people. The director then returned to the other students to continue the survey.


Case #: 230096
Date: 2023 03 09
Time: 1249
Description: Theft - Other
Location: 28 West

Notes: Three students arrived at 28 West to pick up a delivery of cupcakes that had been left for one of the students. The box had been left on the delivery table just outside of the west entrance to the building. The student to whom the cupcakes belonged re-entered the building to report that the box had been ripped open and one of the cupcakes had been removed. The Dispatcher and a Community Safety Manager (CSM) offered to watch the security camera footage to see if they could identify what had happened. While watching the footage, the Dispatcher and CSM observed that at approximately 1225 hours, a squirrel jumped up onto the table, ripped open the clear plastic on the top of the box, then left. Shortly after, the squirrel returned and removed one of the cupcakes. CSOs were unable to determine which of the dozens of squirrels living nearby had been the culprit. It remains at large. The student victim requested to record the security footage on their cell phone to share with the person who purchased the cupcakes for them, and Community Safety agreed to this record release.

The director escorted the student to 28 West where an emergency warming blanket was brought to the student and a space heater was set up to help rewarm the student. Clean dry clothes were provided for the student to borrow and the student was given some warm tea. After the student had changed into warm clothes, the director assessed the student for any signs of hypothermia, of which there were none. The student remained at 28 West until they felt warm enough to leave. A CSO then provided the student with a vehicle escort to the student’s car.

CS Survey Responses:

Every week Community Safety requests survey responses from those who've had interactions with a member of the Community Safety team. These responses are always collected anonymously with the option for the responder to leave contact information if they would like for a member of Community Safety management to contact them, and are used internally for departmental performance tracking. Community Safety has opted to publish these survey results for transparency and community accountability. *Names and pronouns mentioned in survey responses will be redacted to protect the privacy of individuals.

In addition to surveys sent directly to those who have interacted with Community Safety, the Reed community is always encouraged to independently complete the survey regarding Community Safety's performance.
