SFU Community Safety Update

June 04, 2018

Message from SFU’s Chief Safety Officer

Last week, members of the SFU community reported a suspicious person on campus. As soon as those concerns were reported, our Campus Public Safety team took immediate action. Campus Public Safety staff located the individual in question, provided them with a trespass notice and escorted them off campus. We are now liaising with the RCMP and other stakeholders to ensure they are aware of the incident.

We want to thank student community members for flagging their concerns around this individual and want to encourage all students to report any suspicious behavior they witness or experience immediately to Campus Security or the RCMP.

We also want to remind university community members that there are a number of resources available to students who have concerns around safety on the SFU campus. These include the Safe Walk program and our new sexual violence support and prevention office – we’re encouraging any students who need support to reach out to these resources.

Harassment of any type is not acceptable and SFU is deeply committed to providing members of the university community with a safe, supportive and respectful environment in which to live, learn and work.

Thank you for your ongoing vigilance and support.

Mark LaLonde
SFU Chief Safety Officer
