The more aware students are the less crime we’ll have on campus and in the areas where students live.”Martin said the students who become involved in the Campus Crime Watch will receive training that will enable them to be more alert in recognizing suspicious behavior.

By The Penny Hoarder The Campus Safety Fair also featured information booths manned by the Alabama Department of Public Safety, the Troy and Brundidge Police Departments, Pike County Sheriff’s Department, the Department of Corrections, the Emergency Management team, the Pike County game warden and the Troy University Transportation System.The Alabama Department of Public Safety demonstrated the benefits of using seat belts with its Rollover Simulator.“We have an adult dummy and a baby dummy and demonstrate what happens when a vehicle rolls,” said Sgt. Steven Jarrett, public information/education unit commander. “Usually the baby flies out first and then the adult. Often one of the bodies is thrown under the vehicle. The demonstration shows what happens in an accident and how the simple clicking of a seatbelt could prevent injuries and loss of life.”Trooper Kevin Cook said that it only takes a second to click a seatbelt and doing so could make a lifetime of difference.
