A message about recent vehicle break-ins, thefts at Wake Forest

This message was e-mailed to students, faculty and staff on Nov. 7 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

The Wake Forest University Police Department is recommending that students, faculty and staff lock their vehicles on campus to help prevent vehicle break-ins and thefts.  In addition, the University Police Department is taking several steps to reduce the opportunity for these types of crimes to occur.

Reports of vehicle break-ins and thefts have spiked in recent weeks both on campus and around Winston-Salem. Since Oct. 27, the University Police Department has received nine vehicle break-in reports and two vehicle theft reports. In every case, vehicles had been left unlocked. In the two cases of stolen vehicles, the keys had been left in the car.

Break-ins occurred at the following lots:

  • Student Drive (off Polo Road), four incidents
  • Lot R2 (Spry Soccer Field), 2 incidents
  • Lot Q (across Wake Forest Road from Wait Chapel), 1 incident
  • Lot Z2 (off Polo Road), one incident
  • Wake Forest Baseball Park (Deacon Boulevard), one incident

The vehicle thefts occurred in parking lots P (adjacent to Wait Chapel, east side) and R2 (adjacent to Spry Soccer Field). The stolen vehicles were recovered by the Winston-Salem Police Department.

Examples of items taken in the break-ins include electronics and clothing.  In five of the nine break-ins nothing was taken.

In response to the recent upsurge, University and Winston-Salem police officers are increasing patrol of parking lots. The University Police Department, also, has increased the hours of security officers working in the Student Drive parking lot.

University Police Department officials have also been consulting with the Winston-Salem Police Department to get updates on similar incidents occurring in the city, especially in areas close to campus.

In addition, the University Police Department encourages students, faculty and staff to promptly report suspicious activity observed on and around campus.  The University Police Department can be reached at 336-758-5911, through the LiveSafe app or online.  The department is located in Alumni Hall.  With immediate concerns, all are encouraged to call the emergency number.

Senators Burr and Warner to share Wake Forest stage

Richard Burr, left, and Mark Warner

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) will have a conversation at Wake Forest on Monday, Nov. 11, in Farrell Hall’s Broyhill Auditorium at 7 p.m.

Kami Chavis, Professor of Law and Director of the Criminal Justice Program at Wake Forest University School of Law, will moderate the discussion.

The event is free and open to the public. Media are welcome to attend.

From investigating Russian election interference to highlighting ongoing cyber threats, Burr and Warner have collaborated on some of the most contentious issues facing the U.S. When disagreements arise, Burr said they are settled by “picking up the phone or getting together and talking things through.” The discussion will highlight how two leaders from opposite sides of the aisle are able to work together on issues of national importance.

Burr is a 1978 graduate of Wake Forest.  After serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004.  A former governor of Virginia, Warner was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2008.
