Crime prevention education

All new and freshmen students are required to attend an orientation session with the University Police Department for a briefing on crime on campus, security procedures, and department services. Although there is no set schedule for presentations of other crime prevention/education programs, topics on campus crime or related topics are offered by various departments on campus throughout the year.

The University Police Department has free crime prevention pamphlets on 50 topics in its office. The department maintains a security video library on various topics to include date rape, securing your room, alcohol, drugs, and similar topics that can be borrowed at no cost. Alcohol 101, an interactive CD-ROM program, is offered by the University Police Department, Housing Office, Counseling and Testing Office, Infirmary, Student Services, Sports Medicine, and Health Science Department. The University Police Department offers customized education programs to any student or employee group on campus by request. Different crime prevention/education posters are displayed throughout campus facilities each month.
