Best practices for campus safety communications

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Campus safety departments across the U.S. have shifted some security practices in their departments to increase communication and reduce use of force at their universities. A report from the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) examined how campus police departments have increased accountability and transparency, highlighting the legislative shift on the federal, state and local levels towards de-escalation and communication. The report examined the top roles performed by campus safety officers, including event management, emergency response, violence prevention and safety education, transportation services, and traffic and parking services.
