Crime Prevention Archive
If you witness a crime or suspicious activity, call Campus Safety immediately and report what you observed (306-966-5555 or just 5555 on campus).
Use these tips to help when calling:
- Do not confront the subject or subjects; be a good witness.
- Provide Campus Safety with a physical description of the subject; scars, facial hair and tattoos help identify subjects.
- Provide Campus Safety with a detailed clothing description of what the subject was wearing, such as, red shirt, blue baseball cap, white tennis shoes.
- Provide Campus Safety with how many subjects were involved and their gender. Inform Campus Safety of any vehicles that were involved and their description.
- Vehicle descriptions are very important; licence plate number, make of vehicle, colour, condition of vehicle and any bumper stickers or distinguishing items on the vehicle.
- If vehicles or subjects leave the area, provide Campus Safety with the last known direction of travel.
- Stay on the telephone as long as possible with police.
- Providing name and call back number would help Campus Safety in case they need to contact you for further information or in case your call is disconnected.

Campus Safety would like to remind all cyclists to properly secure their bicycles while on campus. The warmer means there are many more bicycles on campus, which also means more bike thieves on campus.
Remember to use a strong bicycle lock, park in areas where people regularly walk, and check on your bike throughout the day. Also keep records of your sales receipts, and bicycle serial number in case your bike does get stolen - without this information, locating a stolen bicycle is unlikely.
