Crime prevention is defined as “the anticipation, the recognition, and the appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of action to remove or reduce it (IACLE, 2019).”
The Fisher College Police Department (FCPD) believes strongly in crime prevention as the best approach to public safety. A primary method for accomplishing this goal is the Department's training programs. These programs are based on eliminating or minimizing criminal opportunities, whenever possible, and encouraging students and employees to be responsible for their own safety & security and the security of others.
Throughout the year, Fisher College Police Department conducts campus programs for students and employees about campus safety, security procedures and practices, and a wide variety of crime prevention strategies. Topics range from personal safety to sexual assault prevention to safety and security on campus and at home. Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Training is also offered.
The Fisher College Police Department depends on the cooperation of the campus community in order to prevent crime and keep our campus safe. Keeping the following tips in mind will help us all maintain a safe place to learn, work and live.
