Many people hesitate to call the police out of fear of getting involved, or of being identified, or even of fear of sounding silly or over-suspicious. We need and want your help in preventing crime. Call anytime a crime is occurring, has occurred, or may occur. When in doubt, call! How do I call the police?
Remain calm and state the problem Give your name and phone number; If using a cell phone, state the city (or building) you are calling from*; State the location of the incident; How do I call the police?
Give a complete description of the person(s)/vehicle(s) involved; Give the direction the suspect(s) or vehicle(s) are travelling. Stay on the line until told to hang up. How do I call the police?

Workplace Tips When leaving your office or other secure areas, lock the doors even if you will be gone for "just a minute”. Never leave your purse, wallet, or valuables exposed; store them out of sight, preferably in a locked drawer. Check the identity of any strangers who are in your office or other non-public areas. If anyone makes you uncomfortable, call the police department immediately.
Report any broken or flickering lights, dimly lit corridors, broken windows, and doors that don’t lock properly to Facilities Management for repairs. If you notice signs of potential violence in a fellow employee, report this to the appropriate person. Immediately report any incidents of sexual harassment. Workplace Tips
Dealing with potentially violent people Be an empathetic listener: encourage the person to talk and listen patiently. Focus your attention on the other person to let them know you are interested in what they have to say.
Dealing with potentially violent people Acknowledge the person’s feelings. Indicate that you can see he or she is upset. Ask for small, specific favors such as asking the other person to move to a quieter area. Be reassuring and point out choices. Break big problems into smaller, more manageable problems.
Dealing with potentially violent people Accept criticism in a positive way. When a complaint might be true, use statements like, “You’re probably right” or “It was my fault.” If the criticism seems unwarranted, ask clarifying questions. Ask for his recommendations. Repeat back to him what you feel he is requesting of you.
What can you do when a critical incident occurs?
Walking Around Campus: If you haven’t already, familiarize yourself with all parts of campus in case you find yourself in unfamiliar places. Plan the safest route to your destination; choose well- lighted, busy pathways and streets. Know where the emergency call boxes are located on campus and learn how to use them.
Travel in groups and avoid going out alone at night. Create a buddy system when leaving at night with your coworkers, or use ISU Students on Patrol (STOP). Tell a friend or roommate where you are going and what time you expect to return. If you are being followed, change direction, note the description of the person following you, and call the police. Walking Around Campus:
Do not wear headphones/earphones for an IPod, MP3 player, etc. Avoid talking on your cell phone, it can distract you from your surroundings. STAY AWARE!
Walking Around Campus: Walk near the curb and avoid shrubbery or other places of potential concealment. Carry your purse close to your body and keep a firm grip on it; carry your wallet in an inside coat pocket or your front pants pocket. Keep your keys separate from your purse or backpack. Walk with a confident stride; keep your head up and look around.
If you are attacked… Go with you instincts, but be realistic about your ability to fight off someone; your instinct may be to run, scream, kick, hit or bite. If a weapon is displayed, don’t resist. Give up your property and save your life. Do what you are told and don’t make any sudden moves. Try to remember as many details as possible and alert the police as soon as possible.
If you are attacked… Your goal should be to escape safely and survive; cooperate if you think that resisting may lead to further harm. Remember every situation is different; you are the only one who can decide the appropriate course of action. Constantly play the “what if” game to think about what you would do in a particular threatening situation. This will help prepare you to respond instinctively when a threat is encountered.
