Department of Public Safety Tips

A majority of the crimes that occur on our campus are thefts of electronic devices, such as laptops, tablets, smart cell phones and iPod/MP3 players. These thefts occur when these items are left unattended for short periods of time or a stranger is asked to “watch” property while someone runs to grab food or use the restroom. Crimes like this are categorized as crimes of opportunity.

DO NOT leave property unattended!!!! EVER

DO NOT trust strangers to watch your property

DO NOT assume others will notice if someone takes your property.

DO INSTALL tracking software on your devices in case theft does occur
