Crime Prevention

The most essential element of any effective crime prevention program is educating the members of the community. We offer several crime prevention tips and brochures published by the Hayward Police Department at the Office of Campus Safety and Security. Another key element to a successful crime prevention program is active participation by members of the community.

Each of us must do our part to prevent crime by taking appropriate preventative measures and promptly reporting crimes or suspicious activities. Here is how you can do your part:

  • Avoid isolated, dark, or less traveled areas of the campus.
  • Walk in well traveled, lit areas.
  • Try to avoid walking alone at night. Stay in groups or take advantage of our Safe Ride program that offers student/employee escorts.
  • Carry a whistle, cellular telephone or other device to summon aid if you detect trouble.
  • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Become familiar with the locations of phones and emergency call boxes.
  • Always lock your car and never leave valuables in sight.
  • When returning to your vehicle, always have your keys in hand for a speedy entry. Check the rear seat of your vehicle before entering and immediately lock your car doors upon entering.
  • Avoid working or studying in buildings alone at any time.
  • Report any suspicious activity to the Department of Campus Safety and Security.
