The University of Arizona Police Department would like to take this opportunity to
remind the community of the following Safety Tips:
 
1. Remain alert and aware of your surroundings and the people in your vicinity at all
times.
 
2. Save important phones calls for a later time. Talking on cell phones or using other
electronic devices when walking, biking, or driving are distractions and divert your
attention away from your surroundings.
 
3. At night, travel in well-lighted areas. Avoid “shortcuts” through dark or deserted
areas. Use the buddy system and travel with a group.
 
4. Utilize ASUA Safe Ride for a free way to travel between UA buildings and lots at
night. Call: 520-621-SAFE.
 
5. If you feel threatened or suspect you are being followed, walk toward well-lighted
areas where there are people. Call 9-1-1 immediately!
 
6. Emergency blue light phones give you direct access to UAPD with the push of a
button. Know where they are located at all times.
