The CSO offered care options and the student declined medical assistance.

When the CSO shared their observations with them, the students confirmed they had been smoking cannabis. The CSO reminded the students that consumption of cannabis on campus property is not consistent with college policy. The students apologized, and in turn the CSO apologized for the awkwardness of the encounter and returned to their patrol.


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.
