Be safe on campus this semester!

A message from SDSU Police Department Chief John L. Browning:
The San Diego State University Police Department would like to welcome everyone to the Fall 2011 Semester. We depend on each and every member of the university community to take an active role in their safety and security by following a few simple precautions:
– Remember to lock your car and secure all valuables out of sight. If you have security devices for your vehicle, i.e. Clubs, alarms or vehicle immobilizers, use them.
– When you leave your apartments or your rooms, lock your doors and windows.
– Do not leave personal items of value unattended anywhere on campus.
– Pay attention to your surroundings; avoid distractions. Immediately report any suspicious activity to the University Police Department (when in doubt, call 911 for all emergencies or 619-594-1991 for non-emergency police services).
– Use the “buddy system” and look out for each other. Safety escorts are available dusk to dawn to and from any campus location. To use this service, call 619-594-6659.
– To obtain police, fire or emergency medical services, dial 911 from your cell phone, any campus phone or activate any “Blue Light” Emergency Duress Phone. Our 24-hour Non-Emergency phone number is 619-594-1991.
