Campus Services and University Police Building
Safety at Western is a community-wide effort. Each of us needs to accept the challenge of living in a way that promotes health and well-being for ourselves and others. To support that, the University provides services for and assistance in maintaining a safe environment.
As in other communities, crimes do occur and you are encouraged to take preventive steps to protect yourself and your property. The key to staying safe is to avoid places or activities that provide a criminal the opportunity to commit a crime against you. Useful crime prevention tips are provided online by the University Police Department. In addition, the Environmental Health and Safety Office, ES 72 (650-3064) and the Public Safety Office, 2001 Bill McDonald Pkwy (650-2945) provide separate pamphlets on personal safety, fire safety, earthquake survival and safety, and health information for employees.
This page is part of Western's Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, which we encourage you to read in full. Other sections of the report include statistics for the previous three calendar years concerning the reported occurrence on university property and nearby public property of serious crime and other offenses related to personal safety, together with important information concerning Western's policies regarding alcohol and drug use, and Western's sexual assault prevention and response programs.
