The University of Central Arkansas Physical Plant worked with the UCA police department, administration, the UCA Student Government Association and university housing student leaders for the second Operation Safe Walk event Thursday night in an attempt to identify safety hazards around the UCA campus.

“We’re encouraging our participants to look for the obvious things,” said Arch Jones, director of organizational and community services. “UCA is a safe campus, and it takes all of us working together to keep it that way.”

Altogether, about 55 volunteers participated in the walk. The participants were split into six groups, each one being responsible for a certain section of campus.

Last year, Jones said, more than 100 items were addressed during the safe walk and about $90,000 was appropriated to fix the problems identified.
