Campus security offers rides to students feeling unsafe

Chadron State College’s Campus Security is offering a Safety Escort Program as of this semester. The program is part of an effort to promote a safe environment for all students, faculty and staff on campus. Safety escorts are available to anybody that is uncomfortable with walking from a building on campus to a dorm or another building.

Once an escort is arranged, a campus security officer will walk with you or give you a ride. This ensures that you make it to your destination safely and in a professional manner.

The safety escorts are not meant to be a shuttle service. They are only intended for students, faculty, and staff that have real, serious fears. Safety escorts are only available on campus, but once a person requesting an escort is close to campus, a campus security officer will meet them at the edge of campus and escort them to their destination from there.

Safety escorts are available seven days a week from 5 p.m. – 3 a.m.

In case of an emergency, people should contact 911 or 9-911 from any of the campus phones.  If a person would like to set up an escort in a non-emergency situation, they should call the Chadron Police Department’s non-emergency number at 308-432-0510. The dispatcher at the police department will contact Campus Security and a security officer will come to your campus location as soon as they are able.
