UAPD making their presence known to incoming students | News
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now)- Happening all day today,
thousands of students will pour into the University of Arizona and get a
welcome from the officers on campus who will be keeping them safe.
Students have been showing up at
McKale Center, to sign in and get their room keys and they are being met by
some of the officers from the University of Arizona Police Department.
UAPD officers are making their
presence known to incoming students on move-in day, by stopping in hallways and
Next week UAPD officers will be
spread out all over the campus, sitting at intersections, and talking to
students about the rules of driving and walking on campus. Officers will also talk about property
crimes, like bike theft, which is the number one crime on campus.
Many of these policies were
covered during student orientation, one of which was student conduct. The main message UAPD would like to convey to
incoming students is to have a plan if leaving with friends. UAPD recommends that students know who is
going, how they are getting there and when they will be leaving.
Because incoming students are
becoming more and more tech savvy, UAPD recommends using social networks for
safety purposes – sending off a text message, updating a status or even
checking in on foursquare are among the ways students can help stay safe.
