Guarding against Robbery and Assault
Tip 1: If you are attacked or assaulted, try to remember what the carjacker looks like—sex, race, age, hair and eye color, special features, clothes. Report the crime to the police. Try to describe your attacker accurately. Your actions can help prevent others from becoming victims.
Tip 2: If someone tries to rob you, don’t resist. Give up your property—don’t give up your life. Report the crime to the police. Try to describe the attacker accurately. Your actions can help prevent others from becoming victims.
Off-Campus Safety Tips
Tip 1: Always keep doors and windows to your apartment locked, especially when you are alone or sleeping or the apartment is left unoccupied (even if only for a few moments). Most burglaries involve unlocked doors, so locking up is the single most effective action you can take to reduce theft.
Tip 2: Keep first floor, fire escape, and other accessible windows closed and locked unless they are equipped with security gratings.
Remember the basic rules of prevention are to be sensible and stay alert.
