Campus Safety Biola's Department of Campus Safety has a genuine concern for the safety of individual students and the Biola community as a whole. Campus Safety's primary responsibility is to protect all those individuals associated with Biola University and their property, as well as the property of the University itself. Trained officers are on duty 24 hours a day. The Campus Safety Department offers special services such as a campus escort service, a rape prevention program, bicycle registra­ tion service and Operation Identification (engraving of personal property for positive identification in case of theft) throughout the year. Vehicle registration, traffic control, building security, assistance in medical emergencies and university switchboard are also handled by this department. Recognizing that a Christian university is not exempt from crime and danger, students are asked to use common sense and caution in every aspect of their activities. Crime statistics are available upon request at the Office of Campus Safety, or on the Biola website.
