Tips from DePaul's Public Safety Office

Here's what you should do if you see something unusual:

  •  Call 911 to report an emergency or if you see suspicious people or activities
  •  Provide a detailed description of the offender(s)
  •  Provide a description of their vehicle and license plate information

Here's what you should do to be safe in the city:

  •  Always be aware of your surroundings
  •  Walk in groups whenever possible; take a cab or public transportation rather than walk alone late at night. Avoid secluded areas like parks, alleys & vacant lots from midnight to dawn
  •  When on the Lincoln Park Campus at night, use Public Safety's escort service
  • Use the emergency call boxes around campus if you feel unsafe
