Glendale Community College is one of the communities that needs to have a safe environment. As a GCC student and one of the members of this community, I feel myself responsible to write about the importance of the college's police department. There are several issues at Glendale Community College that could be solved by police officers on campus. Despite having financial problems on campus, having a police department makes people feel safe. If we keep the police department on campus, people could be saved quickly from fighting, accidents and disasters.

The role of police on the Glendale Community College campus is important. As we all know, the police have the responsibility to enforce the law. Educational places such as schools, colleges and universities are expected to be far from any crime or illegal activities. But in the 21st century anything could happen. As a GCC student I feel safer to see the campus police patrol car driving around and making sure that nobody is harmed, being robbed or attacked. One night I was walking through the bridge in order to get my car on parking's sixth floor.

A student in my English 101 class at Glendale Community College had a sudden-onset medical event. A Health Office nurse and a campus police officer and cadet immediately responded to my request for assistance. Once Officer Neil Carthew and Cadet Nick Allen came on the scene, they calmly directed student helpers and the nurse as to appropriate procedures. They also immediately called for an ambulance. Through their calm and take-charge attitude, Carthew and Allen were able to secure the area from the unwelcome curiosity of students exiting the room and those planning to enter the classroom for the next class.

The police chief of Glendale Community College was placed on leave on Tuesday, leaving the 13-member department in the hands of an officer while campus executives determine their next move. College officials refused to discuss what prompted Chief Steven P. Wagg's leave, saying it was a confidential personnel matter. They also declined to confirm if his captain, Nidal Kobaissi, had been placed on leave as well, although an officer in the department, Erin Kurasz, was named as interim supervisor.

As a Glendale Community College student, I think GCC should have its own have police force for several reasons. The first reason is the high number of students. The majority consists of 18- to 20-year-old youths who may fight or have drug issues. The campus police can control and prevent such issues. GCC classes are also held at night and there are a lot of students that do not own a car and are transported by bus. The campus police also control travelers and provide security for this group of students.

Glendale Community College went dark again on Wednesday during the second major power outage to shut the campus down since last week. At about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, the campus lost power due to an equipment malfunction on Mountain Street below the tennis courts, prompting officials to close the campus Wednesday. If the problem wasn't fixed overnight, the closure could extend into Thursday, at least partially. A campus-wide alert system sent text messages to notify students that classes had been canceled, but some, such as Leah Lyons, 20, of Burbank, showed up Wednesday morning unaware of the outage and disappointed.

As a Glendale Community College student, I can not be quiet anymore, and I feel this is my responsibility to write about the importance of the police department on campus in GCC. We can ask ourselves, “Why do the large buildings in Glendale have their own security?” This is because people need to feel safe having their own security on scene to take quick action when problems come up. I always take classes at night, and I really feel safe when I am walking on the dark bridge on north Verdugo Road and Cañada Boulevard or even in the parking lots because I know there is a large presence of police on campus.
