PERSONAL SAFETY TIPS
• • • • • • • • • • Be aware of your surroundings and alert to any signs that something may be wrong or out of place. Pay attention to your instincts. Stay in well-lighted areas and walk midpoint between curbs and buildings. Stay away from alleys and bushes when ever possible. If you work in unoccupied buildings at night, lock the door to your space. Call for an escort if you feel uneasy. Don’t carry extra credit cards or money. Walk with someone whenever possible. Don’t fight back if someone demands or forcibly takes your wallet, or purse. Turn it over rather than risk personal injury. Keep an inventory of valuable possessions. Mark all items that do not have a unique serial number. Do not attach your identification to your key chain or mark your keys with your name and address. If you are using an ATM after banking hours, use a well lighted, visible location. ATMs located inside a store or a mall will give more visibility. If you feel threatened, go to the nearest place you feel secure and call the police.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY!!!
This might be a catchy title for a country and western song, but trust me, don’t try this one at home… somehow the spouse (or significant other) just doesn't seem to appreciate it or find it humorous. However, here at the Rice University Police Department, that’s exactly what we want you to know and it’s the whole purpose for our new letter. So for starters, here are just a few things: In April, at the “Rice Fest”, we passed out surveys to give you an opportunity to evaluate your campus safety and the community services RUPD provides. There are still a few on hand if you haven’t had the opportunity to fill one out yet. We also had a drawing for a beautiful cookie bouquet donated by Cookies by Design. Angela Riggs, Director of Residential Dining was the winner. We wanted to take a few pictures, but we heard the cookies were so good, there just wasn’t any time for picture taking. If you missed “Rice Fest”, please join us for “RUPD Open House 2007” on May 17th. Come meet our staff and learn more about RUPD. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Sgt. Baylor, our Training Coordinator and founder of our Citizen’s Police Academy, just completed, “Graduating Class #3”, with great reviews. We will keep you updated when to register for “Class #4”. Our RAD program, provided for a small fee by RUPD, has been quite busy as well. To learn more about either of these programs, please contact Sgt. Baylor at Baylor@rice.edu. May continues to be a busy month for the police department. RUPD has been given the honor to host the FBI National Academy Command College. We will keep you informed on how well RUPD represented your police department. As if May will not be busy enough with the Dalai Lama, graduation and Open House, several Rice University police officers will volunteer their time to raise money for the “Law Enforcement Torch Run Special Olympics”. Seven officers will actually carry the torch and run in this years’ event, May 23-26,2007. Since this is the first volume of “The IBC Watch Newsletter”, we would like to hear from you. Please email Officer Maxwell at rmaxwell@rice.edu, with your comments, suggestions or concerns. Also, if you would like to receive your newsletter via email, please email Officer Maxwell.
