Campus Watch was set up recently as a joint enterprise between the College, University and West Yorkshire Police to help create a safe environment for all students and staff.
At the heart of the activity is a range of contact points where students can seek advice, report incidents or express any concerns they may have. These contacts are available by email, text or telephone and information may be left openly or anonymously as preferred.
If you feel unsafe walking around the local student area, help is on hand through the STUDENT SAFE SPOT SCHEME.
Safe Spots are places where you can go to wait until you feel safe, call a taxi home or contact the Police if you need to. As well as local businesses who are part of the scheme; remember that you’ve got the free UBUS or you can call a Safe Taxi on 01274 740623 to get you home safely!
