Policy

[horizontal rule]

The university community can be made safer by a careful review of structural and physical surroundings. Department heads may request a vulnerability assessment, which provides information about the overall safety of the premises, to include:

  1. key control recommendations
  2. study of lighting conditions
  3. safety aspects related to shrubbery and other natural or man-made barriers
  4. recommendations about security systems

    and

  5. inspections of doors, windows, skylights, and university property (i.e., computers).

 

[horizontal rule]Procedure

[horizontal rule]

Upon receiving a written request by e-mail or letter, the ASU Crime Prevention unit will schedule a vulnerability assessment with any department at any campus. A final report will be returned to the department covering the issues mentioned in the policy statement. The report will provide additional advice that may improve security in and around the study area.

Note: A survey may be requested at any time.
