Defense Against Crime

Before you send her off to College…


Ready4College_26Recent campus safety statistics show an increased danger for mostly female students—with up to 1 in 5 college women experiencing and reporting sexual assault and nearly 10,000 students each year enduring aggravated assaults and robberies during their time in college. These facts are gathered by the Government Crime Data.

PEPPEREYES – SELF DEFENCE PRODUCTS is working to enhance awareness of the safety steps students need to take when they get to campus or go off campus. However, we also want to encourage students to take every opportunity to learn the programs their campus offers to help keep them safe.

Here are a few things Students should do

  • Before unpacking your boxes, students should check out what free safe ride or the campus offers walking services.
  • Students should take every safety seminar or attend a self-defense class (like RAD). Many colleges offer student free or for credit, and the techniques and strategies can be lifesaving.
  • For students moving from dorms to apartments, a personal alarm, door Alarm provides portable security. Compact options of a Dorm/Apartment hidden safes for keeping personal belongings safe are also available.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings. Listening to music through headphones or looking down at a cell phone can impede your ability to be alert.
  • Prepare themselves with pepper sprays or other legal products—one of the most effective ways to deter or distract an attacker, and permitted on most campuses. PEPPEREYES – SELF DEFENCE PRODUCTS has the most potent and reliable options on the market.
  • Stick together—there is safety in numbers, so stay close to friends when going out or coming home late from parties.

Dorm Room Rules


This month is national campus safety month. For many college students, the dormitory is both the first experience of living away from home and family and the first initiation into communal living. Life in the dorm can be exciting, rewarding, and a great way to make lifelong friends. It can be a great way to broaden cultural and intellectual horizons, and to learn about new people. On the other hand, life in the dorm can be difficult in testing and stretching your tolerance and maturity. One of the other responsibilities that came with dorm life is always a commitment to watching out for your safety and security.

You share the responsibility for the safety and welfare of everyone in your dorm community. This means of course that you are responsible for yourself and your actions, and no-one else.. This responsibility starts with yourself and the space you can control, namely your room and your actions.

The first thing you need to be mindful are DORM RULES. Please learn, observe and enact all dorm rules. One of the chief rules in dorms is securing the premises, namely your room. The best way to keep yourself, your roommate, your property and your safe is to KEEP YOUR DOOR LOCKED. I know this seems a bit obvious, but many thefts and sexual assaults happened because of an unlocked door. So if you don’t want to join the statistics of these students who didn’t do the obvious, then please LOCK YOUR DOOR. This is the simplest and most effective way to deter crime on any campus. Yet every year crimes happen because students fail to do this one simple act. Some students are notorious for leaving doors, unlocked, propping doors open, giving out their key to someone they did not really know. Some students have been stupid enough to leave a ground window unsecure so that an after-hours guest will have easy access to their room, but so could anyone else. By doing these things, they not only put themselves in danger, but also their roommate and the other residences in their dorms.

Don’t be a Victim of Dorm Theft


September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month

You have had a long hard day. You make it back to your dorm room, and gratefully shed the day’s burden, which includes your heavy backpack. You drop it next to the chair near your desk, and then remove your wallet and cell phone and put these on your desk with your keys. No sooner do you pull out your laptop and sit down than one of your dorm mates down the hall stick his head in your door and says “We good lots of pizza for everyone on the hall, want some?”

College Student…Free food..this is a no brainer. You grab your cell phone, follow your friend down the hall, leaving all those valuables in plain sight on your desk, in your room, that you left…unlocked.

Few golden targets are more inviting to thieves – professional or opportunistic than valuable electronics like the laptop, and a wallet with potential cash, credit cards, personal information and other valuable items. Heck even your books could be taken and sold.

Roommates, suite mates, hall mates quickly become habituated to leaving even the most valuable personal items – wallets and tablets included in the common area of the room or suite. Maybe you really want to trust your college dorm mates as you trust your own family, but do you – or should you? Will you also extend that same trust to their visiting friends or visiting family members? If you do, please wake up.

You will not insult your roommates if you keep your personal items secure and away from prying or straying eyes and covetous thoughts. It’s always easier to keep things in your possession then to get them back.

The lesson here: DO NOT Expose yourself. It is right and proper to secure your property.

General Safety Tips

  • Room doors should be equipped with peep holes and dead-bolts. Always lock them when you are absent. Do not loan out your key. Have locks changed immediately when a key is lost or stolen. It’s bothersome, but very worth the time.
  • Always lock your doors on the 1st AND 2nd floor windows at night. Never leave a door unlocked for your roommate. Value yourself. Your life and safety are more important than their convenience.
  • Secure your valuables.
  • Do not open your door to anyone unless you’re positive who is on the other side.
  • Mark your property; personal computers, laptops, audio and video equipment with property tags and locks. Most are available online. Some campus police have laptop registration programs.
  • You may want to use a diversion safe to hide your valuables.
