Do not leave valuable property where it is accessible or in view: Lock your office, lock your car, etc…
If you enter or leave through a locked door, please ensure that door is locked again behind you. This ensures the safety of anyone else who may still be in the building during off hours. It’s important to ensure you’re keeping others out of danger.
It’s important to always ensure you’re not putting yourself in a position where you feel uncomfortable. Always walk on main walkways that are well-lit, don’t use shortcuts and if you would like someone to walk with you, call the Western Foot Patrol at 519-661-3650.
For faculty and staff using your office outside of normal working hours or on the weekend, please let Security know you are on campus, along with the amount of time you’ll be on there.
You never have to walk alone! Western Foot Patrol provides safe escorts back to your car, will wait with you at a bus stop or drive you home if you live near campus. A male/female pair will be dispatched after calling 519-661-3650 and give your location. For more information, visit the Foot Patrol Website. If it is an emergency and no one answers, call 911 or Campus Community Police Services at 519-661-3300.
