Robbery In many cases, a robbery or theft situation may be able to be prevented.  Taking simple actions can help prevent this situation from occurring to you and someone else.


Consider doing the following:

  • When you leave your room, lock your door.  Even if you are just going down the hall for a minute, lock your door. 
  • When working in a public area, do not leave your phone, laptop, bag, or other valuables unattended.  Take them with you or have a friend watch them if you must leave. 
  • If you see someone or something suspicious, call University Police IMMEDIATELY.  Do not wait to call.  Call as soon as you see something.  This may include someone hanging around a car and looking inside of the windows, someone looking inside of empty offices, etc…
  • Lock your car doors, and do not leave valuables visible. 
  • Do not walk alone late at night.  Walk in groups.  If you are concerned, contact University Police.
