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.
You can take the survey here: CS Survey

AOD Met expectations
AOD Below expectations I understand that it is Community Safety's responsibility to enforce the alcohol and drug policy at Reed, but considering that the AOD infraction was for a single drink in a relatively private common space in which no one was being loud or disruptive while outside students were on hard drugs and screaming during Renn Faire, I found the CSOs priorities to be confusing. The same night I got the AOD I was in bed by midnight listening to students scream outside my window for several hours before they went to bed, and CSOs were nowhere to be seen. I got the impression that CSOs were essentially looking for easy stoppages, gatherings that could be easily and quietly shut down, rather than actually attempting to ensure student safety, upon which the gathering in question did not infringe.

Unlock Met expectations Went as smoothly as it could

AOD Below expectations There were many other people around us smoking weed as we were but we happened to be targeted in what felt racially charged. Also it’s just weed and we were all over 21 and not hurting anyone, just celebrating renn fayre.
AOD Below expectations This occured during Renn Faire, during which there was a controlled and safe environment for those partaking at this particular incident. It was quiet and calm, and I felt as if it was an ineffective use of resources during such a Alcohol and Drug filled time such as Renn Faire when there were worse situations taking place.
