Crime Prevention and Resources
If you are in danger or feel threatened, call 911 or contact Campus Public Safety
If You Witness a Crime
- In the case of an emergency, call 911 to report the incident to the police. Otherwise, call Campus Public Safety.
- If you observe a person committing a crime, do not block their avenue of escape. Instead, get a good description of the person, note their direction of travel and obtain vehicle information, if pertinent.
- Do not follow the person. Let the person leave the scene. If followed, the person may panic and cause you harm.
