September is Campus Safety Awareness Month: Air Date 09/07/11
To help me out, I’ll be speaking with Robin Gray, Executive Editor of Campus Safety Magazine, about some of the safety issues that campuses need to address. Then I’ve got Alison Kiss from the amazing organization Security on Campus (which was founded by Howard and Constance Clery after their coed daughter Jeanne was murdered on campus) to talk about the very important Clery Act.
Then I want to formally introduce you to my new sponsor, MY FORCE, an innovative personal safety service for any smart phone that I bet you’re going to want for yourself AND for your college student. And, they’ve got a special offer for Crime Prevention 101 listeners.
Don’t forget to check out my campus safety tips (one for each day of the month) on my blog CrimePrevention101.com, or on my Twitter @crimeprevent101 and, of course, on my Facebook page: Susan Bartelstone.
