UA police notice increase in theft reports on campus

CREATED Apr. 30, 2013
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - UA police have seen an increase in theft reports recently, so they want to remind people about how to stay safe and keep their belongings safe too. 
The University of Arizona Police Department tells KGUN9 that they have received numerous reports of theft from unsecured lockers at the Student Recreation Center, located at 1400 E. 6th Street, and various residence halls over the past two weeks. 
Campus police wishes to remind students and the community of these safety tips:
  • Remain alert and aware of your surroundings and the people in your vicinity at all times. 
  • If you see someone or something suspicious do not hesitate to contact police.
  • Store your valuables in a locker secured with a lock. Placing your items in an unsecured locker provides no security for your property.
  • Do not leave your personal belongings unattended.  Doing so will help eliminate the opportunity for theft to occur.
  • Always close and lock your doors, even if you will away for a few minutes.
  • Emergency blue light phones can be found throughout campus and give you direct access to UAPD with the push of a button.  Know where they are located at all times.
