Western Foot Patrol promotes safety awareness on campus, deters crime and provides safe escorts on the main and affiliated college campuses.
Western Foot Patrol conducts awareness campaigns and safety presentations on a variety of topics, including travel safety and date rate, among others.
Co-ed volunteer teams patrol campus and affiliated colleges, deterring crime through visible patrols, and reporting criminal or suspicious activities. Each team carries a two-way radio that connects with the Foot Patrol Operations Manager and Campus Community Police Services. Teams also report observed safety hazards and conduct audits of emergency blue phones and main campus street lights.
Volunteer teams provide safe escorts on the main and affiliate college campuses, and some off campus locations. Our co-ed teams will wait with you at bus stops, ensure you reach your car safely in campus parking lots, and escort you to your residence, or any building on campus. The Western Foot Patrol vehicle compliments our walking teams, and is used for long escorts and on high-volume evenings.
Code Blue Emergency Phone Checks
Teams conduct weekly audits of the Code Blue Emergency Phones, to ensure they are operating correctly.
Each month during the school year teams conduct audits of all main campus lighting. Reports are compiled and sent to Physical Plant.
Western Foot Patrol and Campus Police offer the Work Safe program, a "check in" service available for students and staff working alone and late at night on campus. Please see the Work Safe page for more information.
