CRIME PREVENTION MEASURES

Safeguard yourself and protect your belongings by using common sense and taking the following precautions that will reduce the likelihood of you becoming a victim of crime.

IF YOU DRIVE A CAR

  1. Close all windows and lock all doors before leaving your car.
  2. Do not store valuables in your car, even in your trunk.
  3. If you are going to be leaving school or work after dark and you parked your car in what would be a desolate area after dark, consider moving it to a safer place during a break.
  4. The installation of an alarm system that detects glass breakage can protect most car stereos from theft.
  5. If your car is damaged by an accident, hit and run or vandalism, notify the police.
  6. A police report is usually necessary in order to file with your insurance company.

FOR YOUR BELONGINGS

  1. Mark all your books with your name in several inconspicuous locations throughout the books.
  2. Never leave your books or other personal property (back pack, purse, coat, etc.) unattended in the library, classrooms, grill, bathrooms, study areas, etc.

ASSAULT PREVENTION

Personal safety must begin with you. Be aware of the possibility of being assaulted.

Take the following precautions to protect yourself:

  1. Always be aware of your surroundings.
  2. Walk with confidence.
  3. Never work or travel alone at night. If you must, let a friend or relative know where you are going and what time you intend to return (If you can afford it, purchase a cellular phone).
  4. When walking, never take shortcuts. Always use a main thoroughfare.
  5. Make sure you have enough gas to get where you’re going. Keep your car in good repair.
  6. Keep your key ready so you can enter your home or car without delay.
  7. Never leave a party with someone you have just met.
  8. If you feel you’re being followed, change your pace or walk in the opposite direction. If they persist, go to the nearest populated area (gas station, Restaurant, etc.) and call the police immediately.

IF YOU ARE VICTIMIZED

  1. Get help immediately.
  2. Tell the first person you see.
  3. Remember everything you can about your assailant’s description.
  4. If your offender was on a bike or driving a car, remember as many details as possible: Make, model, color, license number, any damage to the vehicle and direction of travel.
  5. Call the police immediately. The shorter the time between an incident and the investigation, the greater the chances are in apprehending the assailant.

Your welfare and preventing a repeat occurrence is our main concern.
