It is essential to be prepared for emergency situations and to be cognizant of ways to prevent crime and avoid dangerous situations.
The Virginia Commonwealth University Police Department would like to remind students, in particular, to keep personal safety in mind. There are certain things you need to be aware of as residents of an urban environment, as crimes may occur in our community.
The best defense is to be prepared and to take responsibility for your own safety and for that of your friends and fellow students. Be aware of your surroundings at all times, walk with a friend and make use of RamSafe, VCU’s security escort service.

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to read VCU’s Annual Security and Fire Safety Report and to share this information with other members of the community.
