K-State Police Department reminds K-Staters to remove temptations for thieves
The Kansas State University Police Department is investigating recent thefts of purses, wallets and other valuables from various areas on campus. We would like to remind the K-State community about basic crime prevention tips that may deter a thief from targeting your valuables.
- Always lock your room, office and vehicle even if you're gone a short time. An unlocked door is a thief's easiest option when they are looking for valuables.
- Don't keep large amounts of cash in your purses and wallets. Technology allows you to inactivate financial cards. Cash is rarely recovered after a theft.
- Do not leave valuables unsecured in public places. Laptops, tablets and smartphones are high target items and if they are left unsecured they are easy for a thief to steal.
If you have information about any recent thefts or any on-going crimes please contact the K-State Police Department at 532-6412 and anonymous tips can be sent to our silent witness website.
