Security

The opportunity for theft rises when the University is closed. Here are tips to help create a safe and secure environment:

  • Items of value should be left at home. Do not bring items of value or large sums of money to work.  Any fundraising money needs to be locked up at all times.
  • Work areas particularly those unoccupied or isolated should be locked even if you are leaving your work area for a short period of time such as for lunch coffee breaks photocopying.     
  • Lock up all personal valuables and equipment example: purses, wallets, cell phones, laptop computers, keys.
  • Make sure that your purse, briefcase, gifts, pager, cell phone, laptop computer, or other items of value are not left in plain view in your vehicle or work area.  Ensure that all persons assigned to work in your area wear identification badges at all times.
  • Actual or potential breeches in security including lost keys access cards and HHS photo identification need to be reported to security immediately.
  • Any suspicious persons or activity has to be immediately reported to Security Services. Suspicious activity includes anything that seems out of the ordinary for whatever reason.
