UCR Chancellor Conoley, Greg Artman, Mike Lane: Create a Task Force to Investigate Solutions Increasing Campus Safety.
This petition made change with 85 supporters!
Dear Chancellor Conoley,
Over the last couple months, students have been receiving emails about crime happening on or around the UC Riverside campus. Some of the crimes include 5 robberies in an hour and a student being robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight. The severity and brazen nature of the crimes are a very serious concerns for all students. One path in particular (Rustin and Linden) has reappeared in the crime emails many times.
We appreciate UCPD notifying the campus of a crime and Chancellor Conoley sending an email regarding campus safety, yet we do not feel that student safety has been a priority to campus administration. We are asking for a task force to be setup with UCPD, Transportation and Parking Services, City of Riverside, and the Associated Students of UCR. Some of the issues we would like for this task force to discuss are the following:
- A campus shuttle program to replace the UCR trolleys that are now at UCLA.
- Possibility of installing cameras on areas where multiple crimes have occurred.
- Working with the city to install more street lights (or improve current streetlights) and blue emergency polls on pathways to private apartment complexes with a heavy UCR student population.
- Expanding the Campus Safety Escort Service and including a red UCPD/WRC telephone in all current and future building plans.
These are only some of the issues that the task force can start addressing.
