Visibility of Campus Safety and Bothell Police

Increase visibility of Campus Safety and Bothell Police on campus in an outreach effort to further develop our relationships as a community.

Standardized Safety Training for Campus Community

Create standard and repeatable trainings for campus safety and emergency preparedness to ensure that all students, faculty, and staff are given the information they need to access safety resources on campus and understand their roles and responsibilities. Two ideas for this would be to 1) develop an online training that orients students, faculty, and staff to campus safety resources, policies, procedures, roles and responsibilities; 2) work with academic unit heads to see how safety information for particular classrooms, labs, and buildings can be shared as part of course instruction.

Status

Ongoing. Campus Safety’s new Program Assistant will be tasked with coordinating schedule and delivery of training opportunities.

Lockdown Procedures

Develop and disseminate a clear lockdown procedure for campus buildings that reflects current capacities and the physical spaces we occupy.

Status

Exterior Lighting Issues

Establish a process to conduct a campus wide review of the current exterior lighting levels and in all parking facilities including flat lots and public pathways, scheduled on a routine rotation to accommodate for campus growth, vegetation growth, and technical advancements in lighting.
