How to keep your Life safe
While colleges and universities are among the safest communities, no campus is immune from crime. Promoting safety on campus is the responsibility of students, faculty, staff, Texas Southern University Police officers, and other members of the campus community. An important part of everyone’s education is learning how to be alert, use common sense and prevent unnecessary threats to the safety of themselves and others.
Campus crimes can generally be broken down into two categories: crimes against property and crimes against persons. Most campus crimes occur when criminals are given the opportunity to commit them. By taking away the opportunity, you can help prevent the crime before it occurs. And when entire campuses pull together to reduce the opportunity for crime, they can significantly reduce the risk and enhance the safety of the entire community.
Following are some helpful tips on reducing your risk of being victimized on- and off- campus. Also included are some steps you can take to prevent a crime that does occur, from getting worse.
