Tips To Prevent Crime

Mark or engrave all valuables (including textbooks), and keep a record of these in a safe place. Include their make, model, and serial numbers whenever possible.

If there are any problems with your room that may affect security (such as doors that don’t lock well or windows that open easily), let your RA or housing director.

Register your bicycle with the ENMU Police Department and always secure it to a bike rack on campus with a quality lock.

Lock the doors and windows to your room and your vehicle every time you leave. Do not leave valuables where they can be easily seen by someone passing by, even if it is just for a few minutes.

Always be aware of your surroundings and of any strangers near you. If someone is acting suspiciously, move away toward large groups and well-lit areas.

Don’t leave valuables unattended in unlocked lockers, study areas, or classrooms.

Alcohol and drug use can reduce your ability to recognize a dangerous situation and your ability to defend yourself. If you are going to drink alcohol, do it legally, responsibly, in a safe place, and with people you can trust.
