Improving Security

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

THE RAPE of two women last weekend at the Business School brings to light the security problems that students and employees face. The chief security problem seems to be a lack of communication. The aims of the University's escort system, for example, are correct, but the University should step up its campaign to inform students of its protective services. The University, while continuing to emphasize its campaign to lock doors and protect property, must also begin a program--as a newly-formed student group suggests--based on attack prevention, and a counseling service for victims of attack, including a hotline.

Next week, the general counsel's office will release a poll on security and police services. We urge students to think carefully about improvements in the University's security programs and to take the necessary time to respond accurately to the survey.
