Staying Safe on Campus

You are here

The Campus Crime Watch Team has composed some tips for staying safe.

Staying safe is everyone’s responsibility. When you leave your office, do not leave your door propped open or unlocked for any reason. Do not make it easier for the wrong person to enter your office. Thefts can occur anywhere at anytime. So, close those propped doors immediately and report repeat problems to Public Safety.

Report the presence of strangers. Whether they’ve gained access to a campus building, are hanging around or are exhibiting questionable behavior, you should call Public Safety immediately at 716-880-2911.

To help prevent injury and property damage while also keeping fellow faculty and staff safe, take a few minutes to report seemingly "little things" like:

  • slippery floors
  • water leaks
  • broken glass
  • missing window screens
  • burned out lights
  • broken doors or furniture
  • emergency equipment not working

Report it

When reporting an incident, think like a reporter: Focus on who, what, where, when and how.

When describing an incident:

  • stay objective
  • keep things in chronological order
  • share where you were located

When describing a person:

  • notice permanent features-hair color, height, facial structure, build, etc.-rather than clothes
  • share special characteristics-injuries, tattoos, piercings or birthmarks.
