Safety at Home, Work and Residence Halls

Be aware of your surroundings whether you are on or off campus.

    • Always have your keys ready.
    • Secure all locks even if you are at home or if you only leave for a few minutes.
    • Use the peephole and ask who is at the door before opening it.
    • No strangers should be admitted into your home without proper identification and a call to verify their identity.
    • Never lend keys.
    • Never reveal your name, address, or other personal information to an anonymous caller.
    • Report lost or stolen keys. Have locks changed immediately.
    • Report stolen property immediately for insurance and recovery purposes.
    • Record the serial number, model brand name, and description of all valuables for future references. Keep duplicate copies of this list in a separate location from the original. Remember the stolen property cannot be recovered unless it can be positively identified.
    • Join Operation I.D. to protect your valuables. For information call 516.877.3500
    • Do not let strangers in to make phone calls. Take the number and make the phone call for them.
    • If you open your door and suspect that someone you don’t know is inside,do not enter. Find a phone, call 911, and report a “burglary in progress.”
    • If you walk into your building and find suspicious individuals loitering there, do not enter—call 911 for help.
    • Keep a phone near your bed. If you hear a burglar, don’t give any sign of being awake. If you can safely call for assistance, do so. At all costs avoid alerting or interrupting the burglar.
    • Leave a light and/or radio on while you are away.
    • If you plan to be away from home for an extended period, stop all newspaper deliveries and have the post office hold your mail or have a friend collect it for you.
    • Know which of your neighbors you can call in case of an emergency.
    • Be aware of your surroundings. When entering or leaving your apartment, be sure you can retreat if necessary. If you encounter a suspicious person in your hallway, you might ring your own bell and then leave when there is no answer. Don’t lead a suspicious person to your apartment.

Be Aware of Your Surroundings!
