The Holiday season is upon us and this is often the time when thefts of unsecured property from offices and vehicles occur. 

The CSI Office of Public Safety is asking for your assistance in reducing this threat by being diligent about your personal belongings and by adhering to the following recommendations:

Do not leave anything of value unsecured in your office. Take your valuables with you or lock them inside your desk. Lock the office doors before you leave for the evening. 

Close and lock your windows. Winter weather damage and thefts of opportunity occur when windows are left open.

Do not leave anything of value in your vehicle (e.g., holiday gifts, leather coats, briefcases, laptops, tools, cell phones, etc.). If you must leave something in your vehicle, lock it in the trunk. Do not leave it in plain sight.

CSI Office of Public Safety has increased patrol inspections on the campus. The officers have been alerted to be extra vigilant and observant.

If you have any questions regarding the above subject matter, please contact the Public Safety Office, Building 2A, Room 108, 718.982.2111 or 2116.
