The University Police Department would like to remind everyone in the JSU community to stay vigilant as the holiday season approaches. Typically, the crime of theft rises during this period. We urge the community to secure your personal property and other items of value. This can be accomplished by locking your vehicles, dorm rooms, and work areas. Most thefts are crimes of opportunity, so make sure to secure your valuables and not leave them in plain sight. Also monitor your credit report to ensure your credit and debit accounts are not compromised. UPD would like to extend best wishes to all for a safe holiday season.
