Minimize

The most effective way to solve a crime is of course to prevent one. At the University of La Verne, The Campus Safety Department and all of its partners on campus, along with the La Verne Police Department–and of course you–every effort is made to prevent crime on or near the campus. To continue to help in this effort, we encourage you to:

  • If you see something, say something. Call 911 or (909)-448-4950 right away.
  • Reduce Your Chances of Becoming a Victim of Theft
    1. Assume no place is safe.
    2. Never leave your valuables unattended.
    3. Don't allow strangers to enter your building behind you.
    4. Close and lock your dorm or bedroom. door, even if leaving for a short time.
    5. If you have a laptop computer, obtain and use a laptop security lock. Also, be sure to register your computer with a laptop tracking software provider.
  • Check with roommates and others in your building about class and activity schedules, or plans to study in the Library.
    1. Possibly others are going to the same location and you can walk together.
    2. Check with others in your classes to see if they are going to the same location as you after class.
    3. Commuter students: Ask if there are other commuter students in your last class and inquire on the possibility of parking in the same area or lot when you arrive. After class is over you will be walking together to the parking area.
    4. When walking, stay alert to your surroundings and the people around you – don't become lost in thought or daydreams–especially when you're approaching a street or while you're in a parking lot.
    5. At night, stay in well-lighted areas as much as possible.
  • Helpful information for your smartphones.
    1. Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. Apple has an app that will allow you to locate your apple device on a map, remotely lock your device, or erase your data. Read more about this app at www.apple.com. Type the words "Find My iPhone" (or iPad, iPod, mac) in the search engine on the Apple website.
    2. Android Smartphones. If you own an android phone, we suggest Lookout Mobile Security where you can immediately map the location of your phone in any browser and sound a loud alarm, even if your phone is in silent mode. If your Android is lost or stolen, Lookout Premium enables you to remotely lock it and wipe your personal data.
  • Register your bicycle with Campus Safety.
    1. It's FREE!
    2. It's a national registry, so if your bike is lost or stolen, the chances of finding it are much greater.
    3. When you do register your bike with us, we'll give you a free U-Lock to help you keep it.
