UVM Police would like to remind all community members to always have safety in mind by:


·        Having emergency numbers programed into your cellular phone

·        Always be aware of your surroundings

·        Travel in groups whenever possible

·        Stay in well let and well-traveled areas when feasible

·        If you see something out of place or suspicious – call the police


UVM Police urge the UVM community to always be aware of your surroundings while walking or running and avoid being distracted by listening to music or talking on a cell phone, especially at night. If possible walk or run with someone and in well lighted and populated areas, and be aware of the emergency blue lights all over campus.




"Crime Awareness" is an integral component of "crime prevention." Knowledge that crimes occur encourages communities to actively participate in crime prevention efforts (e.g., locking doors, not walking alone, reporting suspicious activity to police) and, therefore, creates a safer environment. Lack of information invites complacency. The following message was approved for campus-wide distribution by the Department of Police Services Chief/Director Lianne Tuomey to alert you to an incident, to promote safety on campus and, in part, to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1990.
