We had an informative and entertaining discussion with Officer Alex Gutierrez of the GTPD today. Officer Gutierrez shared many hints and “best practices” on staying safe on our streets, whether here at Georgia Tech or in our home neighborhoods. One thing among the many that we learned was that GTPD provides various services to the campus besides the personal protection that they do so well. Services such as:
- Registry database for laptops http://www.police.gatech.edu/services/laptop/
- Campus crime report map http://www.police.gatech.edu/services/crimemap/
- Lost and found http://www.police.gatech.edu/lostandfound/
- Safety videos http://www.police.gatech.edu/crimeinfo/safetyvideos/
- Inscription services for our valuables
- Etc. …..

Do you know what a pair of shoes hanging from an electrical wire over a street means? Do you know what colored balloons attached to bushes off the street mean? If not, come find out when Officer Gutierrez returns in the near future to speak to us on the highly relevant topic of gangs. Look for an e-mail from me for a date and time.
