Purpose of Safety Bulletins

During the year we utilize safety bulletins to educate our community on incidents or personal safety happenings on campus.  Whether it is to let you know of an increased amount of thefts in a certain area, asking for the public's assistance during an investigation or a friendly safety reminder, safety bulletins are created and circulated through our website and social media programming.  If you are a community member, make it a habit to check here frequently to see if there has been a safety bulletin issued in the areas you frequent while on campus.
