All members of the Smith community share responsibility for our collective safety and security. You can do much to protect yourself and your belongings and keep the Smith campus a safe place to live.
Community participation and involvement are essential to crime prevention on campus. Since officers cannot be everywhere at once, responsibiity for crime prevention also rests upon each member of the Smith community. When individuals do their part by recognizing and reporting incidents of suspicious or criminal activity, they greatly improve the effectiveness of the Campus Police Department.
Get involved by becoming more security conscious and by reporting all incidents of suspicious or criminal activity, no matter how insignificant, to Campus Police immediately. Unreported crimes cannot be solved and may allow the perpetrators to commit additional and perhaps more serious crimes. Solving a crime depends upon how accurately and promptly the incident is reported.
