On-Campus Crime Prevention Tips

Bicycles

  • Many bikes are stolen easily because they are not locked at all. The next most common targets are bikes that are not locked with adequate security protection. Use a U-Lock to secure your bike. The more time and trouble it takes for a thief to attack your bike, the less likely it is your bike will be stolen. Contact Loyola University Police Department if someone or something looks suspicious to you. Call 911 (emergency) or 3434 (non-Emergency).
  • Contact University Police if you witness anything or someone suspicious around the campus.

School bags and laptops

  • Do not leave equipment or valuables unsecured in shared areas, even if only for a short period of time.
  • Mark, make a note of and photograph any features, marks, or other unique identifiers if possible. Engravers are available at the University Police office, as a part of Operation ID.
