Duke In Pictures: Tips N' Treats With Police

Duke In Pictures: Tips N' Treats With Police

Durham, NC -

Eric Hester, right, crime prevention officer with the Duke University Police Department, chats about safety with students (from left) Rodrigo Ortiz, Biridiana Rodriguez and Lizzeth Alarcon in the Bryan Center. Hester and other members of Duke Police were out meeting with Duke community members this week as part of their biannual "Tips n' Treats" series.

The events took place at East, Central and West campuses as a means for officers to informally meet with students, faculty and staff to talk safety and hand out candy or cookies provided by Duke Dining Services. Duke Police handed out about 400 highlighters and 400 wallet cards featuring safety tips and contact information for the department.

"We just want to get out and make sure everyone knows how to contact us, about our free engraving services and our new location on East Campus," Hester said. He and David Williams, crime prevention manager, recently moved to an office space on the bottom floor of the Bell Tower Residence Hall. "The turnout and interaction we've received was terrific."
