Introduction
Coastal Carolina’s student population consists of individuals from all 50 states and 8 foreign countries. Even with their diverse backgrounds, Coastal’s students are highly motivated individuals with strong desires for involvement and achievement. Although Coastal Carolina has experienced a lower incidence of crime than surrounding areas, our community is not immune to crime. The number of incidents occurring on the campus can be reduced if all members of the community practice everyday precautions that will help to make a safer campus community. Freedom has different meanings for many people. All of us expect the freedom of personal safety and the right to enjoy a life free of crime. Unfortunately, violent crimes are becoming more prevalent in our society. We all must become aware of the precautions necessary to reduce the likelihood that we will become a victim of crime. Remember that no one is free from the danger of crime, on or off campus. You are the key to your own safety and the safety of others on campus. Our goal is to create a SAFE CAMPUS with the help of the Coastal Carolina community. Students and their parents are understandably concerned about the issue of safety on campus. Coastal Carolina also is concerned and understands its responsibility in contributing to a safe and secure campus environment. The Security Services Department will respond in all cases of criminal activity and any violation of criminal law can be investigated by Coastal Carolina’s Security Services Department and could lead to criminal prosecution. Any questions or concerns about the department or procedures and operations should be addressed with Coastal Carolina’s Chief of Security.
