    Campus Safety Tips

    1. Lock your car doors anytime you leave the car. It takes only seconds to lock and unlock your car door, and these seconds can save you dollars.

    2. Don't leave obvious valuables in plain view in your car. Sometimes temptation and availability is all that is needed to cause a would-be thief to attempt and complete a theft.

    3. Check the back seat of your car before you get in. You may have an uninvited passenger.

    4. Don't display large sums of cash or expensive jewelry. Again, these actions may provide temptation to a thief. Cash and jewelry are often impossible to trace and easy for a thief to dispose of quickly.

    5. Walk with a friend after dark, and walk on designated pathways and in well-lit areas. There is truly safety in numbers.

    6. Secure bicycles through the wheel and frame with a high quality cable and lock or other approved device. The majority of stolen bicycles were not locked at the time of the theft.

    7. Don't impair your judgment with alcohol or illegal drugs. Avoid accepting a ride from someone whose judgment is impaired by alcohol or drugs. Avoid taking a private walk with someone whose judgment is impaired by alcohol or drugs.

    8. If possible, work with another student when working late at night in campus buildings.

    9. You always have the option to request a security escort by calling 208.562.3333 or in person with the building security official.

    10. Do not leave doors propped open.

    11. Engrave valuable possessions with serial numbers or owner recognized numbers.

    12. Always know the location of the nearest telephone and how to report emergencies. Keep emergency numbers near your phone.

    13. Report any criminal or suspicious activities or other emergencies that occur on campus to the CWI Security Department by calling 208.562.3333 or in person with a CWI security official.
