Notes: While preparing for the Spring/Fall Thesis Parade celebration, the CS Director encountered four unattended cases of champagne sitting behind the benches on the south side of Eliot Hall. The Director requested a CSO bring a vehicle to pick up the unattended alcohol. No one had arrived to claim the alcohol by the time a CSO arrived so the alcohol was taken to 28 West for safekeeping until a Reed student of legal drinking age was able to take possession of the alcohol. Approximately 10 minutes after the champagne was delivered to 28 West a student approached the Director, who was at the Gray Campus Center at the time, and asked if the Director knew of the whereabouts of the alcohol. The Director explained where the alcohol could be found and why, and the student and friends retrieved the alcohol for the Spring/Fall celebration.

Notes: While on patrol near Eliot Hall, the CS Director encountered two students smoking a substance, which smelled like cannabis, out of a glass pipe. When approached the students stated that the substance was CBD and did not contain the psychoactive ingredients of typical cannabis. The Director asked the student if they had the commercial container showing the type of substance that the students had, and one of the students stated that they had it at their residence and would provide it as proof that the substance was non-psychoactive. When asked, one of the students provided their Reed ID card, however the other initially objected. When reminded that it was required to provide proof of Reed ID when asked by any community member, the student did offer up their ID card. As of the writing of the report approximately 3 hours after the encounter, neither student had contacted the Director with proof that the substance was legally obtained CBD.

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.
