Security Tips for Office Personnel

  • Keep your purse, wallet and other valuables in a secure location such as a locked desk or filing cabinet.
  • If you have to work at night, avoid working alone.
  • Use K.I.T. Notify Security that you are working late. Let them know the building and room number and if there is a phone in the room give them the extension number. You may also ask to have a guard stop by periodically and check on you as well.
  • Keep all outside doors locked. Walk with other employees to and from your car or ask Campus Security to escort you.

Vehicle Safety Tips

  • Park your car so you don't have to back up. Either back your vehicle into your parking spot or use a drive through spot.
  • If you are walking to your vehicle, have your car keys ready and in your hand so you are not standing by your vehicle searching for them.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Look as you walk, listen for unusual noises, trust your sixth sense. If you feel something is wrong there is a chance SOMETHING IS WRONG. Use Safe Walk
  • When your vehicle is not occupied, always keep your windows rolled up and your doors locked. Don't leave a purse or other valuables in view; put them under the seat or locked in the trunk.
  • If being followed, don't drive home or leave the car. Drive to the nearest police station or fire station, store or service station.
  • Never pick up hitchhikers or accept rides with strangers.

Personal Safety at Home or in Residence

  • Never use your first name in the telephone directories or mailboxes and of course, avoid prefixes: Mrs., Miss, or Ms. List your first name initial only.
  • If you are female, have a male friend do your answering machine message.
  • After moving into a new home or apartment, it is a good idea to change the door locks. Every window that can be entered from the outside should have a good lock and be properly secured. Don't forget to check with your landlord first.
  • If someone wants to use your phone, no matter what the alleged emergency is, offer to make the call; but do not open the door.
  • Always keep windows secured and covered at night. Never reveal, either in person or to a telephone caller, that you are alone. Have two lights on in different locations of the house. This gives the impression of more than one person at home. To secure sliding doors, place a strong wooden broom handle or dowel in the lower track of the door.
  • In apartment buildings, be wary of deserted laundry rooms.
  • Do not buzz people into the building that you don't know. Tell them you will come down and check before you let them in. Call the superintendent or maintenance person if there is one.
  • In residence, always keep your door locked to prevent theft of personal items.
