Safety and Security for Students at WSU Bremerton

  3. Report suspicious persons or activities when you see them.
  4. Report safety hazards, unsafe lighting, and defective equipment.
  5. Avoid walking alone at night. Let people know where you are going.
  6. Plan your walk by choosing a safe, well lighted, and populated route.
  7. Be aware of your surroundings. Know where you are and where you are going. Know what to expect.
  8. Get to know your classmates and neighbors. Encourage checking on each other often.
