On the afternoon of March 17, UNIST held a launch ceremony of the UNIST Student Safety Patrol to keep the community and residents safe from crime.
The launching ceremony was attended by President Mooyoung Jung of UNIST, Prof. Franklin Bien (Dean of Public Relations & International Affairs), Chief of Police IkSoo Choi (Ulsan Ulju Police Station), as well as executive members of Ulsan Ulju Police Station.
The UNIST Student Safety Patrol Program is a volunteer service, helping local residents to live in a safe and crime-free environment, and preventing future crimes. The service is staffed by 42 UNIST student volunteers (33 internationals/7 locals), who walk or drive through the community and alert police to crime and questionable activities.
They will be patrolling around the Ulju-gun area, including Onsan-eup, Beomseo-eup, and Onyang-eup during the evening hours on alternate Wednesdays with an aim to contribute to regional security, crime, and violence prevention.
Prior to the launching ceremony, Chief Choi and members of Ulsan Ulju Police Station also had a meeting with President Jung of UNIST, followed by a guided tour of the UNIST research facilities.
