Security and Crime Prevention
Your efforts will greatly add to or detract from the College’s ability to keep the incidence of crime on campus at its current low level.
Report all incidents and/or suspicious activities to any of the aforementioned offices (Student Services, Building and Grounds, Facilities or Human Resources);
Protect your personal property when on campus just as you would your money or any other of your valuables or prized possessions at home;
Mark your property such as tape recorders, calculators, radios, etc., with some form of identification (such as your driver's license number or student ID number).
Leave books, jewelry, purses, wallets, backpacks or other valuables unattended for any length of time;
Leave purses unattended in unlocked desks or file cabinets;
Leave valuables on a chair behind you while at a study carrel in the library or computer lab.
Remember, by always protecting your property you reduce the opportunity for a thief to commit a crime.
