Students and their parents are understandably concerned about the issue of safety on university campuses. Limestone University is also concerned and understands its responsibility in contributing to a safe and secure campus environment.
Although Limestone has experienced a lower incidence of crime than surrounding areas, our community is not immune to crime. The number of incidents occurring on the campus can be reduced if all members of the community practice everyday precautions that will help to make a safe community.
Questions or concerns about the organization or operations should be addressed with the Director of Campus Security, Richard Simmons.
