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.

Bicycle safety tips:

* 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.

* Be careful and always be alert.

* Park in well-lighted and well-traveled areas, use bike racks on campus.

* Protect your bike. Keep it properly locked when unattended.

Public Safety is now giving away U type locks free with bike registrations while supplies last.

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.
