The meeting was called to order by Jeff Sydenstricker,
chair. He asked the committee if they

the college to participate in the Certified Crime Prevention Campus
Program. Germania is the only VCCS College
participating in the program. He stated
there are 11 core goals and four optional goals the college must meet in order
to be certified. On a recommendation
from Mike Fein and seconded by Catherine Rice, the committee approved that the
college should participate in this certification.
Mr. Sydenstricker asked if there was anyone who would like
to serve as chair and recorder for this committee. After discussion, it was determined that Mr.
Sydenstricker would remain as chair with Catherine Rice becoming the recorder
for the committee.

The committee was informed that the college has provided
$40,000 for the expanded outdoor warning system. The next step is getting new quotes from
