All employees and students should immediately report any crime, suspicious circumstance or person, or emergency to the Security Office, Building 25 Room 117, 360-596-5299, or 911 Dispatch Center.
If you have a non-emergency incident you'd like to report, please submit the Security Incident Reporting Form.
At the start of the quarter, the Security Office provides safety awareness information during new student orientation.
Crime can occur anytime, anywhere. People can get a false sense of security, believing they cannot be the victim of crime. Be aware of what is going on around you, take precautions and safeguards that reduce the risk of becoming a victim.
- Keep vehicles locked.
- Do not walk alone, especially at night.
- Request an escort from Security.
- Do not leave valuables unattended.
- Report suspicious activities to security or law enforcement.
