Be nice to your professors. On Monday, Nov. 10, at 11:44 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Memorial Hall on the report of a disorderly person. Upon arrival, officers met with the faculty member who had reported the incident. They were told that while taking an exam, a student wanted to leave the classroom and was advised that if he or she left the classroom, re-entry to complete the test would not be permitted. The student left anyway and returned a short time later. When the student was told he or she could not finish the exam, the student became upset, began using profanity toward the faculty member and left. The student was charged with disorderly conduct, and the matter has been referred to the Office of Community Standards.
Didn’t their mothers teach them to clean up after themselves? On Nov. 12 at 7:40 p.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Daly’s Dining Hall on the report of disorderly students. Officers met with a male staff member who explained that shortly before, there were several students who were throwing napkins, dishes, food and drinks on the floor, leaving a mess behind. This was not the first time that this particular group of students has behaved this way. Public Safety was able to identify some of the students involved, but the investigation is ongoing.
It seems there is a wallet thief on the loose. On Nov. 11 at 12:45 p.m., Public Safety was dispatched to the SRC on a report of theft. Officers spoke with the victim, a male student, who said he placed his wallet in an unsecured locker from 10 a.m. Nov. 11 to 11 a.m. on Nov. 12. During that period, the contents of his wallet, including cash, a credit card, a debit card and various forms of identification, were stolen. On Nov. 12 at 4:30 p.m., a similar incident was reported by another male student, who left his belongings in an unlocked SRC locker at 3:20 p.m., and roughly one hour later, found that the contents of his wallet were stolen. On Nov. 13 at 1 p.m., the same thing happened to a male staff member. After leaving his wallet in an unsecured locker in the SRC for an hour, he found that cash was missing from his wallet. Public Safety wants to remind the Rider community that the SRC provides locks for lockers free of charge, and discourages anyone from leaving items in unlocked lockers.
