Pick up the paper every Friday to read the Public Safety call log and learn ways to protect yourself and your belongings.

Safety Tip of the Week:
The following are bicycle tips given by the Director of Public Safety, Henry Christensen: Wear a helmet. More than 70 percent of bicycle-related fatalities are the result of head injuries. At night, always wear light-colored clothing and make use of lights and reflectors to increase visibility. More than half of adult bicycle fatalities occur during twilight or nighttime hours. Ride with traffic. Don’t ride against the flow of traffic. Park in well-lighted and well-traveled areas, and use bike racks on campus. Protect your bike. Keep it properly locked when unattended.
