September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month. In recognition of that, I thought I would take a minute to talk about the Baker College Campus Safety Department.
My name is Kraig Brueck and I am the Director of Campus Safety for Baker College. Although my home campus is in Owosso, I do provide support for and communicate with the other campuses regularly. For those of you who call the Owosso campus home, I may have had the privilege of meeting you while out and about on the Owosso campus. I truly enjoy meeting and getting to know students.
The mission of the Campus Safety Department is to preserve, protect, and defend people and property while respecting the rights and dignity of all persons on the Baker College campuses. We take pride in making everyone feel welcome and at home.
Some of the services your Campus Safety Department provides on campus are battery jumpstarts, building/classroom access, emergency message delivery, first aid, lost and found, resident life parking permits, safety escorts, students/employee IDs, and vehicle unlocks.
What can you do to help keep our campuses safe? Campus safety is truly a community effort; we cannot do it alone. A safe campus requires a partnership between the College and its students, faculty, and staff. You may have heard the phrase, “If you see something, say something.” This has never been more true and is critical to keeping our campuses safe. Get to know your local Campus Safety Officers. They will be happy to meet you. Program the number of your local Campus Safety office in your cell phone for easy access.
Want to learn more about Campus Safety and the services we provide? Check out the Campus Safety page on the Baker College website.
As I write this we are just a few weeks away from the start of Fall Semester in what we all hope will be a post-pandemic world. Be safe, have a great school year, and please reach out to your local Campus Safety office if there is anything we may be able to assist you with.
Campus Safety is BakerProud!
