"This administration is working very diligently to continue the efforts to make it safe," says Curtis Johnson, JSU's Director of Support Services and Emergency Management.
According to safety records, from 2006-2009, JSU
reported fewer than a dozen robberies, five aggravated assaults and two rapes.
Over the last two years, the university has spent upwards of $1 million to improve safety.
"We've increased the number of police officers, the number of security," says Johnson
, "we've installed a number of cameras, we've improved our lighting, we've added fencing."
There are now cameras everywhere you look.
If a student ever feels threatened, they can push the button on one of many emergency call boxes spread across campus to get help.
"We have officers patrolling at all time, so it just depends on where and when it happens, but usually within 3-5 minutes, we're there," explains Johnson
