Stay safe, get a whistle.
The Reno college campuses have experienced a tragic string of Abductions/Rapes over the las several months. In an effort to curb this and keep students safe, the sent out an email with the following helpful advice:
"Stay Safe: Get a Whistle, Request an Escort
The UNR community has experienced several public safety issues recently that have led to some fear and concern. UNR and the Reno Police Department are working diligently to solve these crimes. TMCC and its police department are sensitive to these concerns. The TMCC Police Department has a limited number of safety whistles available at its reception desk in RDMT 241; the whistles are available at no charge. The department ordered more whistles and will make them available to students, faculty and staff as soon as the whistles arrive."
My wife is a UNR student who takes night classes, and also has her CCW. We're both extremely upset about this lack of protection being offered and solutions provided. In her first class yesterday, one of the professors actually suggested students carry a ski pole.
