In recognizing members of the Public Safety Department Dean Primus  said the officers are  “individuals who will not only go beyond the call of duty day-to-day. They make sure they have the skill sets and they’re constantly looking at different kinds of trainings to improve.”  He cited a recent survey in which students expressed a high degree of satisfaction in the work of the Public Safety Department.
