Highline cleans up its act

By Brendan Myrick - Staff Reporter



A crime prevention clean-up day is scheduled at Highline for June 1, where students and faculty alike can help improve Highline's image.

For the first time in recent years, Public Safety is seeking out students and staff to help prevent crime on campus, by simply cleaning up.  

The event takes place Thursday, June 1 at 11 a.m.-noon and begins in front of Building 6 near the East Lot.

"I have been wanting to do something like this for a while," David Menke, director of Public Safety said.

Director Menke said that the event is open to everyone at Highline.  Menke, as well as Sgt. George Curtis and other Public Safety officers, will be at the event.

Also, those who participate could win prizes, such as gift cards.

The focus of the event will take place along the outer rim of campus near Pacific Highway South to the front of Building 6 and the parking lots.  All supplies needed for the cleanup will be provided by Public Safety.

The goal Public Safety wants to accomplish is to make Highline more presentable to the public as well as to discourage crime. 

Menke said that a clean area is less susceptible to crime because a criminal will recognize that people are more present in a clean area.  

This makes crimes such as graffiti, littering, theft, and camping more noticeable.

Also, keeping Highline clean makes the institution more attractive and professional to outsiders who may be looking to start college.

Those who would like to know more about the event or general informatio should contact Public Safety at 206-592-3218.
