From Northeast State's Campus Police
Make sure you don't fall victim to crime by observing the following safety tips:
- Lock your vehicle.
- Do not post signs on your car saying where you are or when you will return.
- Make it tough for someone to take you by surprise, don't wear headphones.
- Walk in areas that are well traveled and lit.
- Mark your books so you can identify them if stolen.
- Don't leave any valuables (books, backpacks, etc.) unattended.
- Walk with a friend to your vehicle.
- Have your car key in your hand as you walk to your vehicle.
- Ask campus police or a faculty member to escort you to your vehicle after dark.
- Head toward an occupied building or crowds and notify security/law enforcement if you feel you are being followed.
- Check underneath and inside your vehicle before entering.
- Trust your instincts! If you feel uncomfortable for any reason, notify campus police.
Please remember to have your hangtag properly displayed while on any Northeast State campus.
