A few notable changes have been made to Campus Public Safety this year. They have had some improvements in their equipment, including a new golf cart.
Robert Cepeda, director/chief of CPS said that he hopes the cart will help CPS to improve their service to students on campus.
“Using a golf cart allows staff to traverse the inner campus easier, provide door-to-door courtesy rides and patrol the campus in a more proactive manner without the restrictions associated with a street vehicle,” he said.
Cepeda said that CPS had money set aside last year for the cart, but wasn’t able to find one that met their requirements. This year, they were able to find the funds for the cart.
“The department was able to purchase a golf cart from a reputable second party that had no further use for it at substantial savings,” Cepeda said.
With the help of the new equipment, CPS plans to continue their professional training focused on emergency management and preparedness this year.
