  • If you're the victim of a crime, please report it to the police immediately.
  • Contact University Police by dialing 334-COPS (2677) or 911 if you observe a suspicious person or situation.
  • If you know you're going to be studying or working late on campus, plan ahead as to how you will get home safely.
  • Never walk alone at night. Travel in groups of two or more and always travel in well-lit, heavily traveled areas.
  • Have a friend walk with you or meet you at a location the two of you can walk from safely. If you are alone, walk in groups of people.
  • ALWAYS – ALWAYS lock your doors and windows.
  • Use Campus Escort by calling 742-6808, or University Police Student Cadets: 775-745-5921 (mid campus) or 775-745-7505 (south campus) These services offer free, safe rides.
  • Tell someone where you're going and when you will return. Carry a whistle or noise maker. This can serve as a reminder to exercise caution, and can alert someone in the area that you need help. Whistles are available free of charge at University Police Headquarters – ground floor of the Fitzgerald Student Services Building.
  • Be alert! Look around you; be aware of who is on the street and in the area. Make it difficult for anyone to take you by surprise.
  • If listening to music, keep the volume low so you can hear what is going on around you.
  • If you exercise at night or in the dark, do so with a friend and wear bright reflective clothing.
  • Follow your intuition… trust your feelings.
