Never leave personal belongings unattended, whether you are in a lab, office, the library, etc. Unwatched articles invite thieves, regardless of how long you will be gone (even a couple of minutes).
Lock your door each time you leave your room, office, or lab. Most thefts in the university environment occur in unlocked areas. Do not prop self-locking doors and do report defective locks to the locksmith immediately though the Footprints Work Order System or by contacting the locksmith at ext. 3512 or public safety at 3500. Do not leave notes on your desk or door advertising your absence or when you will return.
Athletics facilities are not immune to thieves. Try not to bring valuables (expensive watches, jewelry, wallets with cash and credit cards, etc.) with you when you exercise. If you must, be sure to lock everything in your locker. Report any suspicious person or activity to Public Safety (dial 5 on campus phones or call 516.877.3511).
Most crimes can be prevented. While Public Safety tries to prevent crimes on campus, it is your responsibility to protect yourself. Help prevent crimes by locking your personal properties (laptops, wallets, handbags etc.) and valuables.To Report a Crime or Suspicious Activity on Campus.
