Simpson's Safety

While Campus Safety’s job is to keep everyone on campus safe 24-hours a day, from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m, Campus Safety does not have anyone patrolling.

Due to an officer quitting, campus safety does not currently have anyone to work that time slot.

Paul Davis head of Campus Safety, stated, “We should have that position filled within a week. You can still call campus safety 24 hours a day. But there is currently no one patrolling campus from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m.”

With having no security during the early morning, it is important everyone is extra careful and alert.

In other news, on January 31st around midnight, there was an incident on Shasta View Drive.

Mark Endraske sent out a mass email to everyone the next day to inform students of what had happened.

“Around midnight, someone inside a vehicle traveling on Shasta View randomly discharged a weapon multiple times, causing damage to some vehicles on South Shasta View before leaving the area. “ said Endraske.

Endraske continued to state, “No vehicles on campus were damaged, and there are no reports of injuries.”

Campus Safety and Redding police responded immediately. Redding police recommended the campus not be locked down, as the vehicle was not on campus and had left the area. Campus Safety alerts students and employees through our mass notification system if there is immediate danger and will provide instruction.

With dangerous incidents like this happening closer and closer to our campus, it is that much more important for everyone to be careful, especially since no one is patrolling campus during the early morning hours, as previously stated.
