Crime Prevention, Fire Safety and Safety Awareness Programming

Crime prevention is a cooperative effort requiring the entire Loyola community to identify criminal opportunity conditions. The Department of Public Safety, the Department of Student Development, the Office of Residence Life & Housing, the Women's Center, and the Office of Student Support and Wellness offer various safety, security, and crime prevention programs throughout the year. Issues of personal safety, residential security, and office safety are the entire Loyola community's responsibility.

Various Loyola departments conduct crime prevention, safety education, and security awareness programs throughout the year. These educational programs range from personal safety and self-defense to sexual assault prevention and awareness. The Department of Public Safety, the Office of Residence Life & Housing, the Department of Environmental Health and Safety, Human Resources, and the Office of Support and Wellness provide primary prevention, risk reduction, and ongoing awareness programs to address topics such as personal safety, alcohol and drug abuse awareness, fire safety and sexual assault prevention available to students and staff members throughout the year. As part of the security awareness programs, students and employees are encouraged to be responsible for their security and others' security.
