campus safety week

Clayton State University’s public safety department will host its inaugural Campus Safety Week from Sept. 16-20. The week will be marked by events focused on self-defense, parking, campus carry and freedom of expression.

“We decided to hold our first annual Campus Safety week during this month to bring awareness and empowerment to our campus community,” said Police Chief Antonio Long. “We wanted to make sure that our community is engaged in safety awareness and that we approach campus safety as a community issue and not just a police issue.”

National Campus Safety Awareness Month was unanimously approved by Congress in 2008 to create a public conversation on safety issues at colleges and universities. Institutions focus outreach, prevention and awareness efforts around a theme each year. This year’s theme is Bridging the Gap.
