Look Up, Lock Up, Speak Up
Look Up: Always be aware of your surroundings both inside and outside of your apartment. Keep your head up and headphones off while walking in the neighborhood. Additionally, look around your apartment to ensure all life safety devices, such as carbon monoxide and fire detectors, are in good working order.
Lock Up: Always lock doors and windows when you are not home. Thieves look for easy access such as doors that are unlocked or left open. It is critical that doors and windows are kept securely locked.
Speak Up: Always call to report any suspicious activity right away. Students off-campus should call their local police department first and can call the Boston College Police Department after they have already called the local police.
