Public Safety Advisory - Sept. 20, 2017

To:  University Community

From:  Department of Public Safety

Date:  September 20, 2017

Subject:  Bicycle Theft Security Alert  

In the past two weeks, there have been several bicycles stolen from the campus.  These thefts have mostly occurred in the early morning hours.  The suspects seem to target bicycles that are secured with cable locks, which can easily be cut.  There have also been thefts of bicycle parts when the frame was secured with a U-Lock. 

To ensure the ongoing safety and security of our campus community, Public Safety will continue to extra patrol the interior of the campus on a 24/7 basis, especially in the early morning hours.   Any suspicious activity or individuals should be considered a serious matter and reported immediately to Public Safety at 909-748-8888 or ext. 8888 from any campus phone.

As a reminder:

  • Utilize U-Locks to secure your bicycle.
  • When utilizing a U-Lock, attempt to lock the frame AND the front wheel to the rack.
  • Register your bicycle with Public Safety.
  • If you have a quick release on your seat, remove the seat and keep it with you in your room overnight.

Our highest priority remains the safety and security of our campus community.  Any off-campus emergency should be reported to Redlands Police at 911.
