Always be alert and aware of your surroundings and show a confident attitude.
All suspicious activity should be reported to the Department of Campus Safety (ext. 5151) on campus or (208-459-5151) off campus and the Caldwell Police Dispatch (208-455-7531) off campus. Timely reports of information make it easier for the police to gather critical evidence and increase the odds of recovering stolen property and successfully prosecuting a criminal.
Avoid walking alone at night - walk with a group, or call Campus Safety for an escort - if you must walk alone please make sure to use well lighted paths and sidewalks and take the most direct route.
Notice the location of various emergency call boxes on campus
Keep your doors locked (room and vehicle). Do not prop open residence doors, even when going to the shower - this is an invitation for trespassers.
Do not lend your keys or ID card, - even your friends - not everyone will take the same care as you would.
Report all maintenance problems (broken locks, windows, etc.) to your RA immediately.
Attend Security Awareness programs held on campus for valuable information and safety tips.
Identify your valuables - We have five engravers you may check out through Residence Life. There is also a link to a form that you can print off and fill out for your own records.
Use crosswalks and pedestrian crossing signals to safely cross streets.
Be aware of campus and local crime trends. You are your best protection - educate yourself
