Q: Why should I keep my personal property securely locked or with me at all times?

A: Vast majority of crime on the College campus involves the theft of unattended or unsecured property. Most victims of theft cite that they left their belongings for ‘one minute’ unattended. They either left it visibly locked in their vehicle or asked a stranger to ‘watch their stuff’. These moments make for an easy opportunity for thieves to steal property. The solution is to securely lock your property (i.e. bicycle) or keep it under your watchful eye at all times (i.e. laptops, cellphones, bags and purses). When leaving belongings in your car, lock them in the trunk.
