Crime Prevention Tip: Burglary and theft are crimes of opportunity. You can take active steps to significantly minimize or remove the likelihood of becoming a victim of burglary or theft by locking doors and windows and securing personal property, such as bikes and laptops. Never leave your residence or personal items unattended, even for a short time. The campus community is reminded to immediately report any unusual or suspicious persons, vehicles or activity.
