Sean McGee - UAF Police Chief

Chief McGee and the UAF Police Dept are working on several mechanisms to make UAF as safe as possible. Although it is the departments mission to protect and serve they are also concentrating on non-traditional roles such as:
  • Education - how to be more aware of your surroundings.
  • Training - what to do in emergency situations
  • Presentations - why do you need the above two items
  • Crime Prevention Services - come to your area to provide tips to make your area safer
  • Survival Tactics - what do you do if there is a shooting

They are also working on establishing a "Building Safety Coordinator". This person would be responsible for notifying the occupants of that building of any emergency situation. Although there will be one coordinator, this will be a team effort as some buildings have multiple floors.

Chief McGee stated that there are quite a few mechanisms in place to address issues. Their concern and issue they are trying to address at this point is getting this information out to the UAF community so we are aware of what the mechanisms are and what we need to do.
