(RE: Locker rooms’ security to get increase soon; http://easternecho.com/index.php/article/2012/03/locker_rooms_security_to_get_increase_soon)
To Whom it May Concern:
In regards to the Warner Pool’s locker room security, I’m not sure why this has been an issue for as long as it has. I love EMU as much as anyone, but considering all the trouble we’ve had with security breaches in the past, students’ safety and the protection of their belongings should be high atop the priority list.
Not to mention, continual safety issues create all kinds of image problems for the university. If student safety is number one priority, eliminating these issues to create a positive image of EMU should be priority number two. After such horrific crimes had occurred on campus in previous years, the fact that four non-students are even able to access the Warner Pool locker room during off-hours is simply laughable.
Efforts to more properly secure areas such as the First Year Center have been beneficial. Now it’s time to stop cutting corners and purchasing old-time phone booths and give this university the proper security that it needs and deserves.
