Disappearing pop cans are becoming a concern for the University of Calgary Campus Recycling Board.

According to Campus Security, while homeless people are responsible for the majority of the thefts, external students, staff and the working poor have been caught as well. The CRB depends on the cans for a large portion of their budget. Any recyclable containers inside the designated bins are property of the CRB.

While January is a quiet month for Campus Security, there were still some need for the men and women in blue.

A major power outage on a Friday evening required the evacuation of MacEwan Hall, including the Den.

"Most people were cooperative except for one individual," explained Campus Security Manager Lanny Fritz.

This highly intoxicated Den patron began kicking the walls and doors as he was leaving. He subsequently lost his footing and fell to the ground, striking his face on the pavement.

If you get weak at the knees at the thought of built and buff security guards or women in uniform, you'll be dazzled by Campus Security's new garb. The snazzy new uniforms were introduced due to a concern from the Calgary Police Service.

"Our existing outerwear makes us look too much like police officers, particularly from a distance," said Campus Security Manager Lanny Fritz.

  November brings accidents to U of CPDF files may take a moment to load

November seemed to be full of accidents on campus. They ranged from scrapes to broken bones and almost all were sent to hospital.

At the Olympic Oval, a recreational speed skater fell and broke his hip. Another accident occurred in this building, where a 92-year-old woman missed a three-inch drop-off of a platform and fell on her face. Campus Security Officer Matt Firmston said the woman remained in good spirits as she immediately sat up and laughed. Luckily, she only broke her nose and scratched up her face.

A sudden increase in the theft of computer data projectors on campus means someone is getting a good deal on home entertainment equipment.

The computer data projectors, located in many classrooms around campus, have a retail value of anywhere from $6,000-$10,000 apiece and have been disappearing with alarming frequency. The stolen projectors are resold to individuals or pawnshops for use in projecting images onto big screen TVs.

  'Tis the season to go pilferingPDF files may take a moment to load

The semester is quickly coming to an end. Holidays are just around the corner, which means car prowlings could increase. Already in October, there were eight reported cases, where the stolen goods amounted to $3,000.

"It's a good time to remind the campus community with the Christmas season approaching, not to leave any valuables open in the windows," said Campus Security Manager Lanny Fritz. "Otherwise, we will have people that will smash windows and grab the contents."
