POLICE BEAT

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: Here are some safety tips from Director Christensen of Public Safety.

The truth about alcohol:

Today, binge drinking is out of control. It impairs your judgment, affects your body and can lead to trouble, but it also is a sign of immaturity to those around you.

* Alcohol affects your brain.

* Drinking alcohol leads to a loss of coordination, poor judgment, slowed reflexes, distorted vision, memory lapses and even blackouts.

* Alcohol affects your body.

* Alcohol can damage every organ in your body. It is absorbed directly into the bloodstream and can increase your risk for a variety of life-threatening diseases, including cancer.

* Alcohol affects your self-control.

* Alcohol depresses your central nervous system, lowers your inhibitions and impairs your judgment. Drinking can lead to risky behaviors, including having unprotected sex.

If you are a victim of a crime, call the Department of Public Safety at 305-284-6666 or if calling from a campus phone dial 8-6666.
