Subject: Message from Dr. Calaway on public safety
Two instances of graffiti threatening violence have been found recently written on restroom walls on campus. The Overland Park Police Department has investigated, and Public Safety and Campus Services are alert and vigilant. Public Safety currently is reviewing videotapes from cameras.
The most likely motivation for these actions is to cause turmoil rather than to perpetrate an actual act of violence. However, a positive effect of such a situation is that it raises awareness. This is a stressful time of year for all of us. While there’s no cause for alarm or even worry, it would serve the college well if we stay alert to our surroundings, serving as extra eyes and ears for our Public Safety officers. If you see situations, such as lights out in the parking garages, or something else out of the ordinary, please call Public Safety at ext. 4111. You can also use the phones in the hallways or one of the blue emergency phones in the parking lots.
There is no reason for alarm, but there is also no reason to be oblivious to what’s around us. Together, we’ll keep each other safe.
