As part of a curriculum unit on opinions and surveys, a public relations class at Los Angeles City College (LACC) conducted a survey in May 1980 to assess student attitudes toward and awareness of safety on the LACC campus. Data were collected during personal interviews conducted by 22 students at nine campus locations between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Major findings, based on responses from 342 day students, indicated that 43% of the students felt that safety was a problem on the LACC campus and that parking lots and public restrooms were the most unsafe areas. Over two-thirds of the students indicated that they felt "very secure" or "somewhat secure" due to the presence of campus police, but 74% stated that there was a need for more call boxes. While 76% indicated that they always locked their car doors and 80.7% said that they kept careful watch of their books and personal belongings, only 15.8% indicated that they always walked in pairs. Nearly two-thirds expressed a willingness to attend campus safety meetings. When asked what they thought individuals could do to improve campus safety, 90 students said "Be alert and cautious." When asked what the administration could do to improve the situation, students most frequently suggested having more police and more lights. Data tables illustrate the sex, ethnic background, and age of the respondents, as well as their answers to the survey questions. (Author/JP)
