I wanted to take a minute to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. With the first couple of weeks behind us, I’d like to offer a few safety and security suggestions for the betterment of our community. As many of you may recall, last year we partnered with the Austin Police Department’s Auto Theft Task Force in a “Protect It, It’s Yours” Campaign. The campaign message carries forward – do not leave keys or items of value in your vehicle. If you must leave something of value in your car, please lock it in your trunk. As it relates, on a regular basis, I post a #9PMRoutine reminder on Twitter (@ChiefSexton). Started by the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, this national campaign reminds community members to lock their homes and cars before they go to bed. Catered to campus, I post to remind everyone to lock their dorm and car doors for the evening.
Please be cognizant of the parking guidelines, and always watch for pedestrian traffic throughout the campus. You may apply for a parking permit online from the campus police landing page: condoria.edu/resources/campus-police. Remember – there is currently no charge for parking permits.
Crime prevention is a partnership between the community and the police department. You can report criminal incidents and suspicious activities/individuals to campus police by calling 512-313-3311 (on campus), or you can call 9-1-1 when off campus. If you have any questions or concerns, we are happy to assist. Please know that you can call on us!
