Public Safety and Security
SECURITY IS EVERYBODY'S BUSINESS
Crime on campus can be significantly reduced if each person will take the time to properly secure personal and university property, to mark and record the make, model and serial number of personal possessions; to lock rooms and buildings when leaving; to always lock vehicles and take the keys; to observe and report suspicious persons or activities; and never to leave valuables unattended or unsecured. Cooperation is necessary for the successful prevention of crime. The Department of Public Safety offers a number of crime prevention programs to assist University students, faculty and staff in fighting crime on campus. Questions regarding our Crime Prevention programs should be referred to Director of Public Safety Kenneth Greene.
