Security Ambassador Program

Posted Friday, August 28, 2020 | Security | Permalink to this post

I am pleased to announce that we will be launching our Security Ambassador Work Study program! I am very excited to add this next level to the Security program and looking forward to the evolution of the program as well! With this program, we are very excited to see an increased comfort for all on our campus! The Security Ambassador program will be an extension of our Security Department as a concierge and additional set of safety eyes!

What is the Security Ambassador program?

Great question! This new program is an added component of our university’s safety and security program. Security Ambassadors will be an integral part of the security department. Ambassadors will guide visitors to their desired campus locations, staff the campus access sites, assist community members, respond to daily calls such as door locks/unlocks, conduct safety escorts, be an extra pair of eyes for our facility team, and much more! We are currently accepting applications from eligible work study students only.

If I know of a student that would be interested, what should I do?

Current work study and student worker opportunities can be found in the Student Employment section of the website. Look for the “Student Security Ambassador” position!

To apply, send cover letter and resume to me at Jason.Fellows@MetroState.edu

Follow-up on Carjacking and Mugging Near St. Paul Campus

Posted Tuesday, August 25, 2020 | Star Alert Safety Prevention | Permalink to this post

Earlier today, one of our university members was mugged and carjacked as you saw in the Star Alert sent out. I wanted to pass along more information and some preventative measures we all can take to reduce our risk and reduce the opportunity for crime.

First, I want to praise our university member as she did everything right during the situation. She immediately gave her possessions and keys to the criminals when demanded and was able to leave without any physical harm to herself or anyone around her. Again, the best thing to do is comply and survive as possessions can be replaced, people cannot.

Secondly, the university member ran to security to inform of the crime that had been committed. I want to thank the Security Team that responded and assisted with this situation.

What happened? The university member had just exited her vehicle that was parked on the city street near the corner of 6th and Maria. She began walking towards the university when the 2 assailants pulled up in their vehicle and demanded at gunpoint that she give up her possessions and keys. One of the assailants entered the university member’s vehicle and drove off towards 4th street away from campus. The other assailant followed in the other car.

The St. Paul Police Department was called and is investigating the incident. While there has been an increase in carjacking and muggings in St. Paul, we do not believe the assailants are around campus and do not believe they are likely to return to this area at this time.

While this particular crime could likely not have been prevented, here are some tips that we can all employ to try to decrease these types of crimes of opportunity:

  • Students – Parking is included as part of your fees and all students are encouraged to park in the ramp. This is the safest place to park on or near campus as we have security monitoring all cameras, security patrolling the area, and our Parking Coordinator located on the 1st floor of the Ramp Tower.
  • Employees – If you are paying for parking, you should also park in the parking ramp.
  • Cameras – The ramp is covered with many cameras and is access card monitored.
  • Security Safety Walks – If ever you feel uncomfortable, please contact security at 651-775-0444 (save this in your phone) and we will have an officer walk you to and from your vehicle.
  • Lighting – In the evenings, always try to walk where lighting is best.
  • Walk with others or a group. If classmates or others are not available, please feel free to contact security for an escort.
  • Try to stay aware of your surroundings and walk with a purpose while surveying your surroundings. Please refrain from using a cell phone or engaging in other distracting behaviors.

Increased Robbery, Carjacking Reported

Posted Monday, June 29, 2020 | Safety Prevention Preventative Security Advisory | Permalink to this post

I wanted to send out this Safety Advisory as we have received reports of carjacking’s and robberies occurring around Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Woodbury. This information was passed along from the St. Paul Police department, along with other social media post and staff. It is a mixture of robberies and carjacking’s from a majority of teen groups. The reports state that they are obstructing traffic and using fake weapons as fear tactics.

Safety Tips:

  • Always park in well-lit areas.
  • Never leave valuables in sight, always take valuables with you.
  • Do not leave your garage door opener in sight.
  • If there is debris or an obstruction in the middle of the road, do not stop to move it. Drive around the obstruction or reverse course.
  • Contact security for a safety walk from your car to the building and vice versa.
  • Have your keys in your hands as you walk to your vehicle and be prepared to quickly enter your vehicle.
  • Always keep your doors locked.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Do not sit in your vehicle with the doors unlocked.

Our campus is a very safe place. Our security team is here to assist you with any safety or security needs or concerns. Please do not hesitate to call! Security will be increasing CCTV exterior patrol along with increased foot patrols around our university.

Any security needs, concerns, and safety walks, please call 651-775-0444 or from any Metropolitan State University phone, ext. 1717. Please save these numbers in your phones.
