Fort Valley State University has launched the Safety Awareness For Everyone (SAFE) campaign. Several times a week, our campus will provide you with personal safety tips that will help you protect yourself and remain safe on or off campus. If you have a crime to report, contact Campus Safety at (478) 825-6211, or if it is an emergency, call the Fort Valley City Police at 911.
Guarding against Robbery and Assault
Tip 1: Always be aware of your surroundings. If you are wearing headphones, don’t turn up the volume so high that you cannot hear outside noises.
Tip 2: Do not leave the exterior doors of your building unlocked or propped open. When entering or exiting, make sure all doors are securely locked. If you see a door that is not secure, make sure you lock it.
Off-Campus Safety Tips
Tip 1: Report all strangers seen wandering inside or loitering outside your house or apartment to the police.
Tip 2: Question unescorted persons in your apartment or building. If you are uncomfortable doing this personally, call the police.
Remember the basic rule of prevention is to be sensible and stay alert. For additional tips on safety, visit www.fvsu.edu/safe.
