Crime Prevention & Safety Education Programs

Crime Prevention: As part of the institution's educational mission, the University Police Department offers advice to members of the campus community on how to reduce their chances of becoming a crime victim.

Here are some tips to help you if you become a victim to a crime or are a witness to one.

Prevention is the most effective means of fighting crime.

Record the description of suspicious persons. Do not attempt to question or restrain them yourself. Notify University Police immediately.

Escape is the primary objective if you become involved in a dangerous situation. Do not attempt a physical confrontation if escape is possible.

Value your safety and the safety of others.

Employ common sense and awareness in your day to day activities. Remember, many victims of crime once said, “I didn't think it could happen to me.”
