On Dec. 4 at 8:35 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Conover Hall because a dorm room door was barricaded by furniture. Public Safety moved the furniture aside and discussed the incident with the two room occupants. This is the second time this has happened to the residents and the investigation is ongoing. Public Safety would like to make it clear that blocking hallways and doors is a violation of university policy and is taken as a serious matter. Notify Residence Life staff or Public Safety if you notice a door or hallway blocked.
Recently, Public Safety was made aware of at least three incidents where students misused the Safe Rides program. In each of these cases, the cost of the misused services was over $100. The students are being charged with misrepresentation of items and services, 1.2 in The Source. The matter has been referred to Office of Community Standards, and Public Safety wants to remind students that Safe Rides is a beneficial program for the Rider community members, so remember to use it for the program’s intention.
Note from Public Safety
As the winter break approaches and students prepare to leave campus, Public Safety wants to remind students to take home personal belongings, including medications, passports, electronics, jewelry and other valuables. If anyone needs to park close to a residence hall to pack a vehicle, notify Public Safety. Public Safety wants to wish all members of the Rider community an enjoyable holiday season and looks forward to seeing everyone in 2016.
