Crime Prevention

Statistics regarding crime in the area around the main campus are available at Public Safety. These stats are updated each October.

Public Safety's website includes information about issues such as nighttime activities, the safety of areas surrounding the university, the cliffs near the ocean, reporting crime, jogging, protecting you from assault, etc. Be proactive and report suspicious activity. You are encouraged to visit the Public Safety website for additional safety information.
