Safety Tips from UTPD:

1. Avoid walking alone. Walk in pairs or groups.

2. Lock-Take-Hide Lock your vehicle, take your belongings with you, and hide contents in your car.

3. ALWAYS lock your apartment/home/dorm room, even if you are only leaving for a few minutes. Lock your door when you are home.

4. CALL 911 ANYWHERE if you:

  • See or experience anything that appears to be a threat to you or others
  • See an act of violence or anyone in jeopardy
  • Are verbally harassed or assaulted
  • Need an officer for any reason

5. CALL 311 if you are off campus and see:

  • A broken window/crumbling sidewalk/human waste on the sidewalk or alley/structural damage/graffiti
  • Water leaking or broken pipes/sprinklers

6. Instead of giving money to strangers, give to charities who assist those in need.
