Notes: A CSO responded to a theft report in the West Lot. A Reed employee reported that a Reed owner leaf blower was stolen out of a maintenance cart parked in the West Lot.

Description: Theft from Structure
Location: Psychology

Notes: A CSO responded to a report of theft in the Psychology building. The CSO met with a Reed staff member who reported that paperweights had been stolen off of their desk.

The staff member also reported that both signs from the gendered bathrooms in Psychology had been ripped off of the wall.

The CSOs confiscated the alcohol, and retrieved alcohol the students had left on a picnic table on the Foster Scholz patio.

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.
