Public Safety supporting the college’s efforts to deal with Covid-19

Crime was down at Highline last year amid the pandemic, but students should still take care when they’re on campus, the college’s top public safety official said.

“There is a slight drop in almost every category due to the fact that most classes were held remotely, and employees worked from home,” Menke said. “The fact that the population on campus decreased significantly correlates with the data we are seeing on the Annual Security Report.”

The “Dead Trilogy” are three zombie films written and directed by the grandfather of the modern zombie movie himself, George A. Romero.

Each film came out a decade apart and focused on the human drama, and less on the zombies.
