Theft is the most reported crime on college campuses, but it is also primarily a crime of opportunity.

You can greatly reduce your chance of being victimized by following simple theft-prevention strategies:

  • Make sure your vehicle is locked when you leave it.
  • Personal items left in the vehicle should not be left where they are visible.
  • At night, walk to your car with a friend.
  • Remember, your backpack carries your books, class notes, calculators and even laptops. Do NOT leave it unattended.
  • Our campuses are open to the public. Never assume that someone is a staff or faculty member (or even a fellow student) unless they have a Columbia State photo ID.
  • Immediately report any suspicious persons or activity to the police and to the campus security.

A Great Place To Start. Invest in Columbia State.
