Our upcoming webinar in the Campus Public Safety Online series will feature four engaging speakers from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond, VA. These experienced public safety officials will discuss managing external relations and off-campus conduct and how the VCU Police Department has worked strategically with campus partners such as neighboring community and student groups, property-owners, local police, and city stakeholders to address the issues.

Creating a safe community at your college or university involves managing external relations and off-campus conduct. Off-campus community issues such as loud parties, noise complaints, alcohol and drug abuse, and disorderly or violent student conduct cannot be reduced or resolved with a reactive approach alone. It is vital for campus public safety, local law enforcement, administrators, and other campus safety stakeholders to identify issues and work synergistically on a problem-oriented and proactive approach.

These four speakers from VCU will discuss their proactive, collaborative, and innovative community partnerships, including the creation of a VCU Neighborhood Team that addresses off-campus conduct related issues.
