Secure Valuables

This is just a reminder that you should never leave valuables unattended while on campus.

Do not leave purses, cell phones, computers and/or money in plain view inside your vehicle when parked. Even if your car is locked, these items are an invitation to a thief.

We also ask that you don't leave your valuables unattended while in buildings on campus. If you step away and leave your backpack, computer, cell phone or textbooks unattended for even a moment, you run the risk of them disappearing.

Larceny is the number one reported crime committed at Virginia Western.  Help us to keep these crimes from occurring.

Remember; keep an eye on your belongings, keep valuables out of sight and lock your vehicle.

Thank you and be safe,

Virginia Western Campus Police Department
