Crime Prevention

Most people agree in principle that crime prevention and personal safety are important issues.  In reality, many are lax in taking precautions that could make a difference in their lives.  College students are no exception.

Whether you live on campus or commute, you'll have more than enough activity to keep you busy.  It's possible that crime prevention won't have a high priority on your list of priorities and responsibilities.  You may find excuses for not making crime prevention and personal awareness a part of your daily routine.

A common perception is that college campuses are refuges, set apart from the rest of the world, where nothing bad happens.  The University of Hartford is a community.  In many respects it's like a town or city.  While some assume that crimes don't occur on college campuses, the reality is that our community, like others, is not entirely free of criminal activity and behavior.

Crime does and will continue to occur, but you can take steps to lessen the chances of becoming a victim.  The information provided through these links is a reference to help you prevent crime and enhance your personal safety.
