The Topic of Safety and Drake Relays

With Drake Relays coming up at the end of April, safety and security are at the top of Director Scott Law’s agenda. 

Bigger Picture:

challenges Law will be facing:

  • parking enforcement. 
  • drinking/ amnesty 
  • 2 safe ride busses instead of one
  • With the size of crowds on the rise post covid 19, and the presence of alcohol sales at events around campus, Law has asked for additional support from the drake safe-ride bus and Des Moines officers.
  • Another challenge Law faces is responding to emergencies involving alcohol and other drugs. 

Law reminds those who need medical attention of the “Amnesty rule” at Drake, that exempts any legal consequences in an attempt to not discourage calls for assistance.
