The campus watch program, based on the concept of neighborhood watch programs, is a concerted effort to inform the Kenyon community of measures that can be taken to provide a safer and more secure environment.
The aim of the program is for each member of the community to act as an extension of the Office of Campus Safety by serving as an observer and reporter. Campus Watch calls upon members of the Kenyon Community to step forward and assist in building a safer campus and community for all.
If you see any unusual activity, report it immediately and as accurately as possible to the Office of Campus Safety. Members of the Office of Campus Safety are on duty 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Simply dial 0 or 5555 from any College telephone (427-5555 from telephones that are not part of the College phone system), or use one of the blue light emergency phones placed around campus.
When you call the Office of Campus Safety, give your name. Use the list below to familiarize yourself with the questions that will be asked by the Office of Campus Safety. Knowing what information will be asked of you and what to look for will be the most effective tool in preventing and stopping crimes to persons and property of the Kenyon College Community.
Many times, as the school year progresses, calls to action against immediate threats lose enthusiasm. It is important to keep interest in your surroundings and the goings-on alive. Even if an immediate threat of crime is not foremost on your mind, it pays to be vigilant.
