Do you want to prevent crime but feel as though you don’t know where to start? Here are five simple steps you can take right now to prevent crime and increase your safety.

Keep belongings out of sight when you park your car

Remember, property thefts are the number one crime at the university, but many of these crimes can be averted when you eliminate temptation. Make sure to place valuables out of sight, and thus out of the mind of a criminal. In addition, you should always roll up car windows, lock all doors, and take your keys with you.

Use a two-lock locking system to secure your bicycle on campus

Bicycle thefts are not uncommon on U.S. college campuses. Two locks take twice the time, tools and manpower for a potential thief to defeat. The primary lock should be a U-shaped lock that uses a flat key, and the secondary lock a self-locking cable.

Pre-program MCPD’s number into your cell phone: (432) 685-4734

MCPD’s goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff members, and visitors. Never hesitate to report suspicious activity and consider putting this number on speed dial in case of emergencies.

Avoid sleeping in public areas

The majority of crimes are crimes of opportunity, in which victims lack general awareness. Sleeping in common areas around campus, such as the Student Center or the LRC, provides criminals an opportunity to take advantage of exhausted students. If you must rest your eyes, wrap your arms around your belongings or keep your belongings under your head like a pillow.
