SAVE (Security Awareness and Vigilance for Everyone)

The Security Awareness and Vigilance for Everyone (SAVE) course recognizes that no one understands operations better than the front line employee and community members.  The knowledge of what does, or doesn’t, belong in a campus environment is enhanced in the  S.A.V.E. course. The course is designed to empower community members to be responsible and recognize their role in the security of his/her environment by teaching the community members how to recognize and report suspicious behaviors by using behavior pattern methods. 

The course will be offered at 12:30 p.m. Thursday. Oct. 12 in Kent Recital Hall, and again at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, also in Kent Recital Hall. Advance registration is not required.
