The Department of Public Safety provides presentations on
crime prevention, personal safety, date rape, self defense, fire safety and prevention. These presentations frequently involve
experts from public and private organizations.
Student Housing and Residential Education (SHaRE) and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) also sponsor programs relating to
personal safety, alcohol and drug awareness.
As part of the crime preventions programs information on major incidents is forwarded to certain University Officials, the Office of Public Affairs, and the campus newspaper, the FOGHORN, on a weekly basis. When circumstances require immediate notification throughout the University community, Crime Prevention Bulletins are produced and circulated to residence halls and other buildings.
