POLICY: 

The entire Pace community shares the concern that our campuses be safe and secure. You should be alert to suspicious     situations and promptly report threatening, violent or criminal behavior to the Security Office.

PROCEDURE: 

  1. If you observe a criminal act or a person acting in a suspicious manner on campus, immediately notify Security and report the incident. 
  2. Include the following information when reporting an incident: 
    • Nature of the incident 
    • Location of the incident 
    • Description of person(s) involved 
    • Description of property involved 
  3. Assist the Security Officers when they arrive by supplying them with any additional information and ask others to cooperate.

SELF-PROTECTION TIPS:

  1. Self-protection means knowing how to avoid being the victim of an attack and knowing what to do if you are. 
  2. Be alert for the unexpected and don't take unnecessary chances. Be extra alert when you are walking by yourself. 
  3. Walk with someone if you can. The Security Department will provide an escort upon request between any two points on campus. 
  4. If you are attacked, you may consider using your natural defenses. Make a scene, scream, yell, kick, and try to get away. Run toward lights, people, or buildings. 
  5. Do not panic, use your head. It is hard, but try to stay cool. Get a good description of your assailant if possible. 
  6. Be alert for suspicious persons or dangerous situations. Do not take chances. 
  7. Be security conscious; watch out for others and their property.
