Campus Safety Tips:

  • Never leave electronic items unattended. Especially when charging devices at an outlet.
  • Keep bags, book bags, purses, carry bags closed if they contain valuable.
  • Keep small phones and electronic items on your person, not inside coat pockets. (Coats hung over chairs are easy targets for an opportunist)

Office Safety Tips:

  • Install "Find My IPhone/Android" Apps on all your electronic devices.

Recently there has been an increase in reports of "lost property". Lost property is categorized as valuables that are left "unsecured" and then taken by another person. As opposed to a theft where the property is removed by force or from a closed, secure location. Regardless of the classification there is always a victim when property is lost. The most common area these lost property incidents occur on campus are in the library, cafeteria, lounge areas and classrooms. Recently reports of missing electronic items are starting to occur in department offices spaces.

Please take the necessary measures to reduce the opportunity of property loss.

If you have any questions regarding the above subject matter, please contact the Public Safety Office, Room 1M02, extension 2222.

Thank you.
