York students call for safety audit, preventative measures

January 17, 2008

York University's student union is once again calling for an external safety audit after an on-campus sexual assault last week.  Students are calling for preventative measures, rather than a "case by case" approach.  Several new security measures went into place at York this week, including 22 new Residence Watch officers and an expansion of the campus security camera system.  These measures were recommended after assaults that occurred in September.
