DePaul Public Safety offers a reminder that personal items should never be left unattended and in plain view, even in an office or for a short period of time. This recommendation includes laptop computers, phones, purses and wallets. Always lock these items away before stepping from your desk, as there is often public traffic through many university buildings.

Should you notice anything suspicious on campus, don't hesitate to call DePaul Public Safety at 312-362-8400 (Loop) or 773-325-7777 (Lincoln Park). The university's officers are trained to respond to any such situation in a professional manner.
