Crime Prevention Tips:
Do not leave valuables inside your vehicle.
Larceny from a vehicle is a crime of opportunity. Criminals look for a quick, easy, low-risk target and do not want to be detected and caught. If you have to leave any belongings in your car, leave them inside the trunk and not in plain view.
Park your vehicle in a well-lighted area if possible.
Report any suspicious vehicles and/or people to the nearest police officer or college official. Remember the individual's appearance, size, build, clothing, etc.
Students, Faculty, and Staff are encouraged to have a heightened sense of awareness during this holiday season.
