Charles Decker, interim director campus safety, is the chief safety officer responsible for the protection of all members of the College community and College property.
“I handle selection, training, and supervision of all safety department personnel,” said Decker. “I am also in charge of monitoring and control of parking and traffic on campus and the maintenance of departmental equipment and clerical/financial operations.”
Decker also wanted students who are not already aware to know that October is Fire Prevention Month. He stresses that students make themselves aware of things like the nearest exits in their dorms as well as other buildings, in case of a fire. Also, as a side note, he reminds that all smoking must occur 25 feet away from any building on campus.
As for those students still worried about the suspected students with herpes, he says, “I am unaware of this, but the health center would be the area that could answer your question.”
Allegedly, there are a few students on campus with herpes and it has been said that they are intentionally trying to spread it.
Kristi Hottenstein, dean of students, has met with the athletic staff about incidents inside and outside the classroom, STD’s and student health on campus.
While students are still left in wonder as to if the rumors are true, there are students still wondering why they haven’t been notified of the issue and many are still wondering what is being done about it.
In other news, a recent incident happened on campus: an Adrian College student was arrested on Saturday on Michigan Avenue. According to an article published by The Daily Telegram, “[he was arrested] on suspicion of disorderly conduct which followed a report of nearly 100 intoxicated people near the Adrian College Campus”.
According to a report released by the Adrian Police Department, he reportedly refused to stop yelling after he was asked to leave the scene. The officers were said to have used a loudspeaker and lights to address the group. They successfully managed to peacefully disperse most of the crowd. Yet, the individual arrested refused to leave and continued to yell. In result, he was taken into custody without incident. His preliminary breath test measured 0.164. He remained lodged at the Lenawee County Jail.
According to Decker, “disorderly conduct has a few different definitions of the term disorderly.”
If students are interested in knowing the exact meaning, “it can be found in the Michigan Criminal Code as section 750.167 and also online,” Decker said.
