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 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.

Responses collected 07 25 2022

Unlock Met expectations Thanks!
Medical Assist Below expectations In an emergency situation, Community safety seemed pretty lax about transportation to hospital. Used taxi service that was longer wait time than Uber/Lyft/other services. “Good luck” wasn’t the most reassuring care for the situation.
Unlock Surpassed expectations I thought I lost my badge and keys. Community safety was kind enough to let me into my office. Thankfully I had left the badge and keys in my office and did not have to replace. While I have the chance, I would like to thank all of the community safety team for their work on campus. All interactions that I have had with your team have been positive.
