Public Safety Update/Summary of Incidents/Aug 13 – Aug 19, 2012

Public Safety Update/Summary of Incidents/Aug 13 – Aug 19, 2012

August 13; 11:15 am: An attempted theft of a bicycle locked to the handrail near HC
building was reported by a vigilant staff member. The staff member’s actions prevented
the theft of the expensive bike. The suspect fled on foot. CCTV was checked with
negative results and a report was made.

August 14; 9:13 am-6:50 pm: Public Safety was contacted by staff regarding a
disturbance near the B building. A description of the suspect was obtained and
dispatched. The suspect was contacted in the west parking lot. He continued to be
disruptive and was arrested. Phoenix Police were called and booked the suspect into jail
for disorderly conduct.

Other Activities

One medical incident was reported to Safety this week that did require medical transport
for follow-up treatment/surgery.

No motor vehicle accidents were reported to Safety during this period.

Breatheeasy: A reminder that the District policy on tobacco products on campus
is in effect now. Please visit the District website for information. The Public Safety
Department appreciates your cooperation regarding this new policy.

Bike Security: Bicycles should be locked at bike racks only per District Policy.
We have had bikes stolen that were locked using a small cable system. This
system appears to be easy to defeat. I recommend purchasing a steel U-bolt type
lock as a better theft prevention lock. Please keep in mind that all locks can be
defeated so the goal is to make it more difficult. We are working with M&O
to centralize several locations for bike racks and CCTV coverage to facilitate
security. REMEMBER; nothing is theft proof.

Safety: Safety on our PC Campus is all of our concern and responsibility as involved
community partners. If you see activity that appears suspicious and/or destructive, call
Public Safety to report it: give the location, type of activity and descriptions of those
involved if possible. The Safety Office phone is staffed 24/7. The number is 602-285-

NOTE: Faculty members are encouraged to share the safety updates with their students.

End of update.
