The UFPD recognizes that violence of this nature is not the fault of the victim and is highly unusual. Consequently, the UFPD would like to remind everyone of these basic safety considerations:
Report suspicious activities or individuals immediately using 9.1.1.

Always be alert and aware of your surroundings. This is particularly true if you are wearing headphones and may not be able to hear someone near or behind you.

If someone bothers you, don’t be embarrassed to attract attention to yourself. Yell!

Avoid walking alone. On campus, use the Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol (SNAP), a safe campus escort service by calling 352.392.7627 (SNAP).

Stay in well-lighted areas, away from alleys, bushes, and entryways.

If someone stops and asks for directions, avoid getting close to the individual.
