Crime Prevention

“Help us help you avoid being a crime victim.”

The Police Department is available to conduct Crime Prevention Programs for all staff and faculty members, student orientations, and staff development programs. A crime prevention officer is available upon request to provide classroom presentations on various crime-related issues such as date rape, domestic violence, workplace violence, and personal safety. Crime prevention brochures are available at the Police Department, room W135. A primary goal of the Police Department is to maintain a safe and suitable learning environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. 

Crime Prevention Tips

  1. Mark your books in a discrete place, using your MVC student ID number, Last four of your driver’s license or state ID or any other mark that is unique to you.  
  2. Obtain an anti-theft device for your vehicle such as a steering wheel lock or “kill” switch.  
  3. Lock your vehicle and roll up your windows.
  4. Do not leave valuable items in plain view inside your vehicle.
  5. Do not leave your backpacks, books, cell phone or other personal items unattended for any amount of time.
