The open layout of the college campus provides an ideal environment for thieves. Taking a few precautions will go a long way so that you do not become another victim.
  • Never leave personal possessions unattended.
  • Always keep money in a safe place and withdraw only necessary cash.
  • Be careful with keys. Keep them in a secure place. Never label keys with your name and address or room number.
  • Take care of your own property and that of the university.
  • Avoid keeping pin numbers and bank cards in the same place. Put your pin number somewhere safe.
  • Carry your check book and credit card separately.
  • Keep your cell phone in a safe place. 
  • Remember your friend probably won't steal from you, but his / her friend might!

If You Are a Victim

  • Contact the police immediately and give them as much information as possible.
  • Always ask the police for your case number to support any insurance claim.
  • Don’t rely on others for your safety.  You are ultimately responsible for your safety.
