COCC Beefing Up Campus Security

Central Oregon Community College is in the process of beefing up security on campus following recommendations from an independent review of campus security. Campus security at COCC has been scrutinized since the rape and murder of a student in 2016, and subsequent claims that campus security officers have taken their role too far - blurring the lines with Bend police. COCC has appointed an interim Campus Safety Director to provide more oversight, and campus safety officers are going to be wearing more casual uniforms to prevent any role confusion with Bend police.


New Water Study Determines Future Needs in Oregon

The results of a $1.5 M study to help meet the water needs of cities, farms, and rivers throughout Oregon have been released. The research was conducted by the Upper Deschutes River Basin, and the data is expected to guide how water is utilized in Central Oregon. The study is also expected to assess the future water needs of the growing cities in the state, and help to identify how those needs can best be met.

Rescued Hiker

Yesterday afternoon at about 1:00 o’clock, Deschutes County Dispatch received a call from an injured hiker at Smith Rock State Park.  The hiker, 36-year-old Raili Marks of Seattle, was near the Misery Ridge overlook and could not walk without assistance.  Ten Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue volunteers, along with one Deputy, and members of the Redmond Fire Department responded. Medics provided medical care while Search And Rescue volunteers loaded her into a wheeled litter and transported her down the Misery Ridge Trail to a waiting ambulance.  

St. Charles Issues Public Alert About Medical Phone Scam

St. Charles Health officials say Central Oregonians need to be wary of phone calls from someone claiming to be affiliated with the health system asking for your Medicare or Social Security numbers.  They say the caller ID may appear as a St. Charles number, which makes the scam especially deceiving.  If you get a call like this, they say you should hang up and call your St. Charles provider's office to see if they need any information.

No Change in Tuition at COCC Next Year

No increase in tuition at COCC for the upcoming school year. The Central Oregon Community College Board of Directors has voted unanimously to hold tuition and fees at their current levels this fall for the 21-22 academic year.
