Policy Statement Addressing Crime Prevention Programs for Students and Employees

Crime Prevention Programs on personal safety and theft prevention are sponsored by various campus organizations throughout the year. SWOSU Campus Police personnel facilitate programs for student, parent, faculty, and new employee orientations, student organizations, community organizations, in addition to quarterly programs for Housing Services Resident Advisers and residents providing a variety of educational strategies and tips on how to protect themselves from sexual assault, theft and other crimes.  Dr. Robert Sam Lackey teaches a personal safety class in the fall and spring semesters. Lackey is a 5th-degree black belt instructor. This is a comprehensive course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training.

Tip: To enhance personal safety, and especially after an evening class, walk with friends or someone from class that you know well, or contact campus police  for an escort.
