In February 2016, the Facilities Commission hosted a CPTED certification training at Santa Fe College for the entire Facilities staff. Crime Prevention through Environmental Design is fast becoming a highly regarded method to promote safety and encourage positive behaviors on college campuses. This event was provided through the Campus Police staff at Santa Fe College. If you are interested in having a similar program come to your campus, please contact Jessica Vander Biezen at 352-395-5556 to coordinate.
The Facilities Commission has been working closely with the Consortium to bring informational workshops to your campus. If you would like for a workshop to be presented on your campus, please contact the Chair and we will get it set up for you. It's free and can be such a benefit to your staff!
