There are positive things you can do to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of personal or property crimes. The following are some suggestions:

  • Make sure your room/office doors are locked at night or when unattended
  • Mark all valuable personal belongings
  • Fill out a (click on the blue letters for the pdf.) Property Idenfication Form and keep it in a safe place
  • Your personal property should be insured against theft or casualty loss
  • Do not prop open exterior doors for convenience of access - it can compromise the safety of other occupants within the building
  • Walk and jog with friends if you choose to exercise in the early morning hours or after dark
  • Heed your instincts and don't take unnecessary risks
  • Report all suspicious circumstances or persons to Campus Public Safety or the police
  • Report all crimes, no matter how minor or insignificant
  • If you have been victimized, call us! If we're not able to help, we can refer you to the people who can.
  • Register your bicycles with Ashland Police Department through Campus Public Safety
