Santa Fe College Security
“I was kind of shocked but we all take safety precautions now, like we’re going to walk out together and not be on cell phones or iPods or anything, that way we’re more aware.”
Kayla Chambers is a student at Santa Fe College who heard about the kidnapping on Thursday early Friday morning.
And with the added precautions, she says she and her fellow students feel safe. That's what the Santa Fe Police are going for.
Ed Book of the Santa Fe Police says they're "reassuring our student base and our staff and our faculty that they are safe. And we have resources to make sure they’re safe."
But are the security measures enough?
One of the interesting things about this case is that police don’t have any witnesses, and there are no security cameras in the parking lot, so the police literally were blind at the time of the abduction. And some students say they want more security than that.
“I would like cameras, that way the police would have more of an idea of even who to look for," Chambers says.
Her fellow student, Glen Grossman, adds, “that’s not right, it shouldn’t happen at a school, so they need more security...stuff like that shouldn’t happen.”
And to make sure it doesn't happen again, students are banding together.
Grossman says: "If I see someone walking alone...if I know them, I’ll come up to them see if they need a ride or you know, just keep them company.”
