OSU starts safe walk program

Oklahoma State University has launched a Safe Walk program to enhance safety on the Stillwater campus. The program uses trained student public service officers to accompany anyone from one campus location to another between the hours of 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. seven days a week. The trained officers, who work in pairs, also patrol the campus on foot to help with security in parking lots and facilities, and watch for any suspicious activity. Currently there are 15 part-time student public service officers and one non-student reserve who have been trained and are on patrol. Students interested in applying for the job should go to www.hireosugrads.com or email Senior Police Officer Leah Storm at leah.storm@okstate.edu. To receive assistance through the Safe Walk program, call (405) 744-6523 and ask for an officer to be dispatched to your location.
