NC State considers safety a top priority. The campus grounds are dotted with blue-light emergency phones, and Campus Police offers an escort service for students. Despite their positive role on campus, though, they're often shown disdain by the students because of their role in monitoring underage drinking. Another common complaint is the massive number of parking tickets distributed.
Bicycle storage and dorm entrances are also not very tightly secured. All dorms are locked, and students are supposed to verify their residence in a dorm using their IDs or call a room using the speaker phones outside the hall, but the majority of the time, students let one another in, regardless; there are usually no security guards around the dorm entrances. Many bike racks are near dorms and classroom buildings, and after a bike has been stolen, a student's only recourse is to file a report with Campus Police; there is typically nothing the police can do, unless someone saw a suspect. Overall, students feel that Campus Police have the right priorities, but there is room for improvement in a few areas.
