Public Safety Information

By working together, we can help to ensure a safe and secure environment.

Crime prevention is a matter of personal responsibility. Criminal activity has no respect for individuals. It flourishes in communities which are inattentive or apathetic in their approach to crime. Every member of the University community has a responsibility to contribute to the well-being of the community. No single group or organization can possibly prevent crime on behalf of all. Therefore, it is incumbent upon each of us to participate in crime prevention efforts. This can be accomplished by being aware of our surroundings, by reporting criminal or suspicious activity, and by getting involved in University-sponsored crime prevention programs. Crime prevention, to be fully effective, requires active participation, cooperation, and the development of partnerships within the University community. Crime prevention begins with you.
