Weekly Crime Prevention Tip

LIBERTY, July 25, 2017 - Safety and security are shared responsibilities. Here are some basic safety precautions you can take to prevent potential campus threats:

  • Walk in well-lit areas and avoid using darker, quieter alleys or low-occupancy / vacant passages, especially at night. Stay aware of your surrounding and avoid distractions from smartphones, headsets and other mobile devices, particularly when crossing the street and late at night.
  • Keep your belongings close to your body. If your wallet, phone, backpack or purse is taken, don't fight; give it up immediately and then call 911.
  • Do not flash smartphones, money or credit cards around in public. Have your key out and ready when walking to your car or home door.
  • Avoid talking to strangers or responding to panhandlers. Never hitchhike or accept a ride from an unknown person.
  • Practice the buddy system whenever possible, particularly when going out to a party, bar, club or taking public transit at night. Always identify a designated driver or have a ride home arranged if you will be drinking.
  • Never leave your drink unattended at a social event. If a friend becomes disoriented or unusually intoxicated, take them to a safe space and call for help immediately.
  • Keep apartment / house doors and windows locked, and valuables stored out of sight.
  • Keep car doors locked and remove all valuables from sight, even loose change.
  • Do not prop open building doors. Report suspicious persons inside campus buildings.
  • Obey all vehicle and bike traffic laws. Practice safe biking by wearing a helmet and other protective gear.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, trust your instincts and practice common sense.
