On college campuses like UMB, May is a time to prepare for final exams.
Preparation also is key in staying safe, the UMB Police Force reminds us. Knowing where you are, where you are going, and what resources are available all can help make your trip a safe one.
So remember to:
- Familiarize yourself with the area so you become less of a target. Check out our campus map! Pedestrians who look lost attract criminals.
- If you see someone or something suspicious, be prepared to alter your route or go into the nearest building. Simply acting alert can ward off an assailant.
- Utilize the blue light emergency telephones that are available throughout the campus.
- Call the University Police at 6-3333 if you feel in danger.
- Scared to walk? Call for a police escort at 6-6882 or 410-706-6882. Walking escorts are available 24/7 and riding escorts operate between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m. 365 days a year.
