The semester may be over for students at Marietta College, but Campus Police are using the summer vacation to put new safety measures in place.
Campus Police Chief David Valkinburg says in light of two campus assault cases that happened this past semester, safety is the department's top priority.
He says they'll be checking the security on doors, the lighting in walkways and upgrading emergency call boxes.
Chief Valkinburg also says they're looking into adding more surveillance cameras.
However the main goal when it comes to student security is improving the education students receive about their safety.
"One of our biggest concerns is getting the word out to students to be responsible for their own safety and security; keeping the doors locked and being responsible. That's gonna be the big thing," Chief Valkinburg said.
No word yet on any suspects in the two campus assault cases.
