Safety Tips:

  • If you are going out alone, make sure that someone knows where you are going, who you will be with and when you expect to return.
  • If you start to feel concerns about a person or a situation, trust your feelings and try to remove yourself as quickly as possible from the potential threat, even if it is someone whom you know and even if it feels awkward to do so.
  • If you think someone is at risk of assault or abuse, you should consider it an emergency and act to support that person.
  • You can call the police or ask for help from other people, intervene directly if safe, or create a distraction to help remove the potential victim from the situation.
  • The UCI Police Department Safety Escort program is available to anyone calling (949) 824-SAFE (7233). This is a free service provided to members of the UCI community as a safe alternative to walking alone at night.
  • Dial 9-1-1 for emergency or in-progress events. Non-emergency call (949) 824-5223.
