Disorderly Conduct/Disturbance

At 12:05 p.m., security received a phone call from a SAIT staff member reporting an intoxicated student in the John Ware building. The employee suspected that the student was intoxicated because he was unable to open his locker.

At 12:10 p.m., two patrol officers were on site, where they then proceeded to meet with the student and the staff member, and advised the student to go home while also offering to supply him with a taxi chit.

The student refused the chit and did not comply when security asked to see his student identification. Patrol officers followed the student as he walked to the LRT, and at 12:40 p.m., a security supervisor met with the patrol officers, where the student reported that he was uncomfortable being followed by security.

Patrol officers returned to the John Ware to obtain the student’s identity from the staff member, and at 12:49 p.m., the student safely boarded the C-train.

Theft (SAIT Property)

At 1:55 p.m., a SAIT employee reported to the security office that a SAIT vehicle had been stolen. The employee said that the vehicle had been parked on the south side of the Thomas Riley building on Jan. 13, and suspected that it had been stolen that evening, as it was gone the next day and confirmed stolen on Jan. 15.

The staff member has reported the theft to the Calgary Police Service (CPS).

Jan. 17
Medical

Security received a telephone call from a SAIT guest reporting that two individuals, one male and one female, were asleep in a Campus Centre washroom at 12:44 p.m.

A patrol officer was on site shortly thereafter where he waited for assistance from two additional security staff. A patrol officer spoke with the individuals who verbally identified themselves.

The female had requested that her husband accompany her to the washroom as she was feeling ill.

The patrol officer proceeded to inform the woman that as they were publically intoxicated and sleeping in the bathroom, they needed to leave or security would contact CPS.

While the woman was compliant, the male continued to sleep on the floor.

The female began complaining of pain in her stomach at 12:54 p.m., after informing the officer that she had thrown up blood moments before he arrived.

Security proceeded to contact EMS, who arrived 1:07 p.m., and determined that the woman needed further medical assessment. Security contacted the Downtown Outreach Addiction Partnership (DOAP) team to transport the male.

EMS attempted to transport the female to the ambulance at 1:24 p.m., but she became incompliant and refused to be transported without her husband. EMS then contacted CPS for assistance, but by 1:35 p.m., both began walking off campus, and were off site within the next 10 minutes. EMS then cancelled the calls to CPS and the DOAP team, and left SAIT at 1:49 p.m.
