Student Government Association hosted a public safety forum yesterday, March 4th, in the Russell Union Ballroom. Public safety officers discussed the issues on campus as well as answered questions by students.

“Students should be smarter when leaving items in their car,” Tanner Dupuis, junior finance major, said.

In attendance were representatives from the Statesboro Police Department, the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office and the University Police Department. Among the topics discussed was the recent incident at Campus Crossings. Students had many questions about the eagle alerts provided by University Police.

Eagle Alerts are text messages that are sent to your phone when something dealing with the student’s safety occurs on or around campus. There are no set times for these texts, they come when something happens.

The Public Safety Department also sends out Campus Alerts to warn the Georgia Southern University community of potential danger. Campus Alerts will be posted on the Public Safety website as well as in emails distributed by the Dean of Students. There are some students who feel like safety on campus is a must.

“I wouldn’t walk home at night, but I feel pretty safe on campus,” Christian Polizzi, sophomore Sociology major, said.

For more questions on how to stay safe on campus, please contact the University Police at any time.
