Staying safe at night

UTC Police Department offers 24-hour service and will provide after-hours escorts upon request in campus areas.

Whenever you know you will be walking on campus at night, dress in clothes and shoes that will not hamper movement.

Always be alert and aware of your surroundings. Plan your route for safety and walk with friends or a group whenever possible.

If you sense danger:

  • Move away from the threat; for instance, cross the street and increase your pace.
  •  Join a group of people nearby.
  • If a threatening situation seems imminent: Yell, scream, or make a commotion to attract other people.
  •  Go to an open business.
