Safety and Crime Prevention Programs

The Department of Campus Safety presents safety awareness and crime prevention programs each year during orientation and at special events. The Department of Campus Safety staff also works in close cooperation with the Residence Life staff to conduct relevant and useful programming in Bennett College residence halls. Safety awareness and crime prevention programming is also a part of new employee orientation, in cooperation with Bennett College. Some features of this programming include:

  • Campus Safety Alert Bulletins: The Department of Campus Safety quickly notifies the community of any serious incident that may be a threat to other community members. Bulletins outlining the incident, describing any suspects involved, and precautions that should be taken are disseminated in a timely manner to help prevent a similar incident from occurring.
  • Rape Aggression Defense Systems: The R.A.D. System offers a basic education of confrontation principles and personal defense. Our program ranges from awareness, risk reduction and avoidance, to basic physical defense, aerosol defense options and advanced self-defense methods.
  • North Carolina Sex Offender Registry: The Department of Campus Safety provides a monthly updated registry of sex offenders that reside within a one mile radius of Bennett College’s Campus.
