Safety Tips

Providing a safe environment for our students is always a top priority at La Salle. We hope to work together with students to create a safer campus and community. Here’s a few reminders of how you can be vigilant and proactive with your safety.

Remember to:

  • Be aware of surroundings and stay alert.
  • Avoid texting or looking at cell phones while walking.
  • Travel with a group when possible.
  • Request a safety escort from Public Safety or a friend.
  • Report suspicious circumstances or crimes to Public Safety at 215.951.1300 or 911.

Car Safety Tips:

  • Lock your vehicle even if parking for only a short time.
  • Do not leave a spare key inside your vehicle.
  • Remove valuables from your vehicle or secure them out of sight.

Don’t forget to download the Rave Guardian app for one-touch calls to Public Safety or to text information.

Stalking

  • Women are 3 times more likely to be stalked than raped. (www.safehorizon.org)
  • Over 1.4 million women and men are stalked in the U.S. each
    year. (www.safehorizon.org)
  • About a 1 in every 4 stalking victims obtain restraining orders.
  • In many, many instances, obtaining a restraining order for a stalker
    will only make a bad situation worse. From the stalker’s point
    of view, restraining orders are humiliating.
  • Tell a stalker “no” once and only once, and then never
    give him or heU the satisfaction of a reaction again. The more you
    respond, the more you teach him or her that their actions will elicit
    a response.
