Notes: A CSO on patrol of the GCC encountered a person lying unconscious on the sidewalk near the amphitheater. The CSO recognized the individual as a student with whom they’d had previous interactions. Upon waking the student, the CSO confirmed that the student was inebriated. Based on the CSO’s observations of the student’s degree of intoxication, the CSO determined that assisting the student to their residence was the best course of action.

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.
