Mr. Lynell Nolan, Director of Safety and Security at RUSVM, sent the following message to the Ross community on Monday (7/5/10):
I have received a number of complaints, one as late as today, from members of the St. Kitts public concerning students that walk their dogs unleashed, and the dogs are approaching persons on their walks. This is not appreciated by the Kittitians, as they are of the belief that the dogs are coming to attack them. Some further reports are made concerning some students who allow their dogs at their residences to leave the confines of the premises and go into the public road in an aggressive manner after passersby. Owners of dogs are requested to control their dogs to avoid any unfortunate incidents.
The responses we’ve heard from students contain a mixture of anger and disbelief. So we contacted Mr. Nolan to ask him about Ross’ policies for keeping students safe, as well as methods of disseminating information about crime incidents and altercations. We’ll post that message here soon. In the meantime, please let us know what you think about the “Uncontrolled Dogs” message.
Mr. Nolan can be contacted at lnolan[at]rossvet.edu.kn or by phone at 869-465-4161 x191.
