We have incidents reports this week from Walter, Wilson, and Health Sciences.
On 12/10, a Sci/Eng librarian reported encountering a student in the Walter Building on a Sunday morning before the building was open to the public. The student was not willing to leave the building until the librarian reminded the student that building security staff would soon be reporting for duty. The student left the building and the librarian made sure the doors were locked.
On 12/11, an individual ran out the basement exit after it was closed, setting off an alarm. A witness said the individual appeared to be waiting for staff to leave the exit area before the exit was breached. Security monitors were notified.
On 12/13, on a tour of the Diehl Hall library, a fire door was found unlocked. Staff locked the door and planned to speak to facilities staff about procedures for securing fire doors.
Thanks to all who used the incident report system and to all of you who have offered comments and suggestions. The next digest will appear on January 2, 2007.
