Basic Rules of Personal Safety

Do not leave your wallet, purse, briefcase, recorder, laptop computer, or cellular phone unattended or in plain view inside your vehicle.

Keep your vehicle locked. Have your keys ready when you return to your vehicle. Look around the area and under your vehicle as you approach.

If you are out at night, walk or park in well-lighted areas or call the ECU Police Department for an escort, 328-6787 on the Main Campus; 744-2246 on the Health Sciences Campus.

Keep your vehicle in good running order and have at least a quarter tank of gas at all times.

Keep your vehicle doors locked and windows rolled up at least part of the way, no matter how short the distance you're driving or how safe the neighborhood.

Don't stop to help other motorists; call for help for them at your earliest convenience.

Stay alert. Keep your mind on your surroundings-who's in front of you and who's behind you. Don't get distracted. If you're worried about crime, ask a friend to accompany you when you go out.

Communicate the message that you are calm, confident, and know where you're going. Stand tall, walk purposefully, and make quick eye contact with people around you.

Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation, leave. * If you see anything suspicious or unusual on campus, call the ECU Police.

Remember, if you have an emergency or need a response for any type of emergency service, on the Main Campus, call 911 or 328-6150. On the Health Sciences Campus, call 744-2246.

How to Use Emergency Call Boxes

Emergency call boxes located around campus have direct lines to the ECU Police Department. You will see that the call boxes have a blue light on top. To operate these call boxes, use the general rule of thumb:

If it has a receiver, pick it up. If it has a button, push it.

To use the phone, push the button or pick up the receiver. You will be connected to the ECU Police Department.
