“Crime can happen anywhere”

The GS Office of Public Safety sent an email to all GS students with some safety reminders to keep in mind.

“While crime can happen anywhere, Georgia Southern officers, staff and faculty are committed to the security of our community,” said the Office of Public Safety. 

Reminders:

  • Walk in groups of 2 or more, especially at night. 
  • Never travel through dark or poorly lit areas.
  • Always lock your doors, exterior and bedroom, when you leave.
  • Never leave your property unattended, for even a short period of time, This includes, bookbags, laptops, books, cell phones etc.
  • Always lock your vehicle and never leave valuables in plain view, instead, place them in your trunk.
  • If you use a bicycle to travel around campus, use a quality locking device to secure it to the proper bike rack.
  • If you are riding a bike, scooter or longboard, wear a helmet.
  • While riding a bike, scooter or longboard, you do not have the right of way in a pedestrian crosswalk. Do not dart across the roadway. 
  • Always report suspicious behavior to Public Safety and/or a faculty member.
  • Download and Use the LiveSafe App
  • Weapons of any kind are not permitted within the residence halls.
  • Remember, the Counseling Center is always available to help students. Call 912-478-5541, option 2 (Statesboro) or 912-344-2529, option 2 (Armstrong/Liberty) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students can also view a more extensive list of resources (including additional 24 hour resources) here. Need a same-day appointment for an urgent issue? Contact the Counseling Center to schedule a same-day solution session.
  • Georgia Southern University uses an emergency message alert notification system, called Eagle Alert, if there is an imminent threat to students, faculty and/or staff on any of our campuses. Eagle Alerts are designed to provide instructions, not to pass along information. If our information indicates there is no imminent threat to campus – for example if a shooting is accidental or self-inflicted – you should not expect an Eagle Alert.
  • If there is ever an emergency, dial 911 or call us directly at 912-478-5234 (Statesboro) or 912-344-3333 (Savannah).
