The CSO inspected the adjoining room, and encountered an unsecured case containing a large sum of money.

The  CSO met with the reporting vehicle owner, a Reed student, who relayed that the driver-side window of their vehicle had been shattered. The student also reported that a blue bag had been removed from the vehicle. The CSO sympathized with the student and also recommended that the student file an online police report for the stolen item.

After speaking with and assessing the unwell student, the CSO determined that the student was experiencing an alcohol overdose, and medical treatment was required. American Medical Response was called and transported the student to a nearby medical facility for further care.


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.
