Frostburg State University Police won the Maryland State Governor’s Crime Prevention Award for the 21st time this year. This award is presented to groups and individuals throughout Maryland who have “made outstanding contributions to the furtherance of crime prevention programming.
Each year, the Maryland Community Crime Prevention Institute, along with the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions and the Maryland Crime Prevention Association presents the Annual Governor’s Crime Prevention Awards.
FSU’s police department is being recognized for its impressive efforts to do its best to make sure every student in Frostburg is safe. The department strives to educate every student on personal safety, rape prevention, drug and alcohol education, theft prevention, residential and commercial activity as well as other topics specific to college populations.
FSU’s police department is considered unique in its approach to crime prevention. Instead of having an individual or division dedicated to preventing crime, every single officer is expected to educate the public-students, faculty and staff- by completing at least eight crime prevention activities each year. To ensure every student at FSU is safe, University Police takes a hands-on approach to crime prevention. Officers may be found in the classroom, heard on the airwaves, read on the Internet or seen in a demonstration.
