Stanford Safety Board Focuses on Equity as Crime Rises Around Campus

Stanford Safety Board Focuses on Equity as Crime Rises Around Campus

“anti-bias and de-escalation education programs”

The progressive agenda takes priority over everything, even public safety.

The College Fix reports:

Crime rate is up, but Stanford public safety board ‘fiercely focused’ on equity

The head of Stanford University’s Department of Public Safety noted the crime rate is up around campus, but the school’s Community Board on Public Safety nonetheless remains “fiercely focused” on issues of equity.

At the CBPS’s second annual meeting last week, Chief Laura Wilson even admitted that this focus “has not gone without consequence,” The Stanford Daily reports.

Over the last year, CBPS began “anti-bias and de-escalation education programs” and “collaborated with consulting firms to remodel campus safety.” As such, Wilson said Stanford Public Safety “shifted its attention ‘from trying to prevent crime to investigating reported crimes’ by decreasing the presence of armed officers.”

This meant fewer campus police patrols around student housing.

“We’re not quite sure what the community wants from us at this point in time, because it’s hard to stop crime if you’re not out there, contacting people,” Wilson (pictured) said. She added that “responses to crime have become more delayed due to reduced police engagement on campus.”

But to which community is Wilson referring? Is it activist groups such as the Committee for Change and Abolish Stanford … or average students who just want to pursue their studies in safety?

In addition to Chief Wilson, the conference included Stanford Center for Racial Justice Director George Brown, Riseling Group President Sue Riseling and CBPS Co-Chairs CBPS Patrick Dunkley and Claude Steele.
