Safety Information and Protective Steps
Although the only person responsible for a burglary is the perpetrator, the campus community is always encouraged to take the following safety steps to help keep themselves safe:

  • Secure doors and windows before sleeping or leaving the residence.
  • Report suspicious people or vehicles in your area, such as individuals pulling on locked doors or handles attempting to enter without a key, or attempting to tailgate into a secured area.
  • Do not let others you do not know tailgate you into secured parking areas or buildings.
  • Report exterior lighting that is out and needing repair.
  • Students may also request an on campus walking safety escort by contacting the UNCSA Police Department at 336-770-3321.
  • Know how to use and the locations of the emergency phones and callboxes throughout campus.
  • If you are confronted, COOPERATE! Give the criminal what he/she asks for — wallet, keys, jewelry, credit cards and electronics. Your life is more valuable than replaceable possessions. Don’t make sudden moves or try to apprehend the criminal yourself. Concentrate on remembering a description and call police immediately.
