					Security
     Woodbury University is committed to providing a safe environment for its community members. Private security officers monitor the
campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They provide traffic assistance to visitors as well as providing general security and safety to
members of the Woodbury University community.
     The Security Officer at the main entrance to campus may be reached by using a campus phone at extension 208. If the Security Officer
does not answer, you may leave a message for an officer by dialing 818.252.5208 or page an officer by dialing 818-629-0446.
     The Security Officers are on campus to protect people and property and to provide assistance whenever necessary. Campus Security
Officers work closely with the Burbank Police Department and the Los Angeles Police Department (Foothill Division).
     Students and guests are required to present proper identification and follow any directive given by a Campus Security Officer. Campus
Security Officers provide many functions for Woodbury University, such as:
     • Campus safety inspections
     • Campus building walkthroughs
     • Campus safety escorts
     • Crowd control at campus events
     • Traffic and parking enforcement

Safety Measures for Campus
     All members of the campus community play an important role in helping to make the campus safe and secure for everyone. By taking
reasonable precautions, students can make themselves less likely to be victimized by crime. Some of these include:
     • Locking your car and not leaving valuables where they are visible.
     • Walking alone after dark. If no one is available, call or page the security officer and ask for an escort.
     • Report any suspicious activity to campus security.
Residence Hall Safety
• Always lock the door to your room when leaving, even if it’s “only for a minute.” A minute is all it takes for someone to enter your
   room and steal something or to wait inside for your return.
• Always sleep with your door locked. If you live on the ground floor, lock your windows too.
• Never prop open an exterior door.
• Don’t loan your keys to anyone. Losing your keys will result in a fine and presents a potential security risk for everyone in your
   building. If you lose your keys, notify a Residence Life Staff member immediately.
• Mark your valuable items. The Los Angeles Police Department can give you more information on how to mark your valuables by calling
   their Community Relations Office at (818) 756-8866.

Occurrences of Violent and Non-Violent Crimes
      Even in the most secure environment, the possibility of criminal behavior exists. Woodbury acknowledges this and periodically
reviews its policies and procedures to make the campus as safe as possible.
      In the event of an emergency or a criminal activity in progress, the following actions are recommended:
      • Call 9-1-1 or the local police department (L.A. City) for emergencies.
      • Notify campus security at 818.252.5208.
      If the suspicious behavior is witnessed in or near one of the residence halls, please notify the residence life staff person on duty as well
as security.
      Programs to raise awareness about campus security issues and procedures are held during orientation and throughout the academic
year.

Notification of Violent Crimes
     Students, faculty and staff are informed periodically about campus security procedures and crime-preventing behavior through the use
of University publications and special memos. The Policy and Procedures Manual and the Emergency Procedures Handbook also provide
security information to faculty and staff. In the event of a reported crime on campus, the University will provide the community a timely
notice in an effort to prevent similar occurrences. Notices will be posted and distributed on campus.
     The University cooperates with local police in the investigation of all reported crimes which occur on campus. The University follows
federal, state, and local laws with respect to alcohol and drugs. In accordance with the Campus Security/Student Right To Know Act, the
University records and publishes these statistics. The University cooperates with local police in the investigation of all reported crimes that
occur on campus. The University follows federal, state, and local laws with respect to alcohol and drugs. The Office of Student Affairs may
address questions about the University’s security policies, crime statistics, or definitions of crimes.
