Safe Walk Program

The Safe Walk Program

The Safe Walk Program provides SFU community members with a Campus Security escort to support safe travel on campus 24/7.

The Safe Walk escort is provided by either a security officer or a student campus safety member. These Safe Walk personnel are equipped with portable radios and flashlights and are in direct communication with the Security Department Patrol Operations dispatcher.

Safe Walk personnel can be identified by a valid SFU Campus Security picture identification card.

Requesting a Safe Walk

To request a Safe Walk escort:

Remember that you cannot reserve a Safe Walk time; you must call when you need the escort.

Tips

  • When requesting a Safe Walk, always give the dispatcher the exact location where you are and the destination desired.
  • After making the request for a Safe Walk, wait for the escort inside a building if possible. The escort will meet you at the location specified.
