Community Resource Officers
Community Resource Officers (CROs) interact with students and residence life staff, offering direct support from a familiar face, providing educational programs, and serving as mentors. The CROs use community policing and problem solving to address quality-of-life issues and build positive relationships that help students understand how the resources we offer can help keep them and their property safe.
Residential communities are staffed as a priority. Academic and administrative buildings are designated according to need as staffing allows. These officers build partnerships and improve safety by attending community meetings (residence hall meetings, employee safety committees, etc.) and by making positive community contacts and disseminating crime trend and safety information. They pay special attention to their assigned communities and actively solicit input and information from community members on perceptions of crime and safety issues.
Find the CRO in your area from the list below. Introduce yourself and invite the officer to any meetings where his or her presence might be helpful. By taking ownership and working together, we can improve the safety and quality of life in our Carolina Community.
