Staying Safe on Campus

 

What can you do to stay safe? 

There are a number of steps you can take to stay safe on campus. 

 

See Something. Say Something.

Always report any suspicious behavior or activity to Campus Security. You are the eyes and ears on the College campus. If you observe something that doesn’t seem right, don’t hesitate to let us know. Even if it turns out to be nothing, it’s best to speak up. There are several ways you can report suspicious behavior, including:

Travel in Groups

There is strength in numbers. Walk with a friend or classmate, or call Campus Security at ext. 4053 or (440) 366-4053 to request an escort.  Avoid isolated or dark areas and report any unsafe conditions to Campus Security immediately!

Protect Your Belongings

Do not leave book bags, textbooks or purses unattended.  Take your belongings with you everywhere you go.  Engrave/write your name or student ID number on your personal property (i.e. calculators, textbooks, laptops, book bags, etc.).  Visit the LCCC bookstore to inquire about locker rentals.

Be Prepared to Move

Dress in clothing that allows you to easily move or run.  Tight clothing and high heel shoes or clogs may make movement difficult. 

Parking Lot Safety

Walk to your car with a purpose, car keys in hand, ready to put in the lock.  Check under your car and in the back seat before you enter.  Make every attempt to park in well-lit areas.  Once inside, keep your car doors locked. 

Securing Your Car

Always lock your car doors, roll up your windows and close your sunroof.  Always lock valuables in your trunk or in your glove compartment.  Never leave any valuables in plain sight in your vehicle.  Always scour your vehicle upon returning from class to assure you are not the victim of a hit-and-run accident.
