Campus safety and security are high priorities
In response to reported criminal incidents on campus, the University Police Department and the Division of Student Affairs have been taking steps to improve safety, and additional safety measures are being planned.  Among the highlights:
* Reports of assaults to UPD are given the highest priority for investigation.
* University Police developed a "Stay Safe" flyer that has been distributed throughout the on-campus residence facilities and posted on the UPD web site.
* The "Stay Safe" flyer will be distributed to instructors in First Year Experience classes, to share with their students.
* UPD has established a police sub-station at the North Park Quads to increase its visibility in the area.  Resident Assistants have been conducting more rounds and addressing safety concerns, and will be implementing safety awareness and community watch programs during the upcoming week.
* Police officers are conducting more frequent patrols, both by car and on foot, in buildings and around campus up efforts to provide the safest campus possible.
* Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to be familiar with the location of emergency phones around campus.  Push one button to reach UPD and report crime or suspicious activity.
* UPD has established a web site where individuals may report information anonymously that might help with preventing or solving crimes. Click on then the link to the "silent witness" form.
* Everyone is welcome to register items of value with the UPD by going to the same web site and following the link.
* UPD encourages the university community to help by reporting suspicious activity, programming the UPD number, 972-2093, into your cell phone, and calling for a UPD escort if needed.
* SGA, Student Affairs, UPD, and Facilities Management personnel will conduct their annual campus walk-through Tuesday evening to identify safety concerns for action.
   More information will be distributed as other steps are taken to assure everyone of a safe and secure campus.
