Grand jury urges colleges to step up security measures

 

The San Mateo County Community College District should improve security training and emergency preparedness on its three campuses, including Canada College in Woodside, the county civil grand jury recommended in a report released July 5.

Made up of 19 citizens appointed by a Superior Court judge, the civil grand jury investigated safety and security practices on the campuses and recommended that the district:

> Hold regular joint training sessions between on-campus security and local law-enforcement agencies.

> Review safety awareness and emergency procedures during new student orientation in the fall.

> Hold annual large-scale training exercises to prepare for major campus-wide emergencies.

More than 26,000 students are enrolled in the district's three colleges, including the College of San Mateo and Skyline College.

Elected officials are required to respond within 60 days to grand jury's recommendations; governing bodies must respond within 90 days.
