The more expensive and attractive your bicycle is the more likely it is to be stolen.
A mechanically sound, generic appearing bicycle is a less likely target.
Lock your bike! The best protection for your bike is to secure it properly with a
hardened steel "U-shaped" lock.
If your bike is missing call the University Police immediately.
To assist in the recovery, you should record the serial number and keep it someplace
safe. Engrave your Driver's License number on your bicycle and register it with the
University Police Bicycle Anti-Theft (BAT) program. The University Police can provide
assistance with engraving your bicycle FREE of charge. Contact USFPD for assistance.
Out and About
If you are out after dark, use only well-lit routes.
Be alert. Look around you. Be aware of others on the street. Make it difficult for
anyone to take you by surprise.
Use the buddy system and travel in a group.
Know the locations of "Blue Light" emergency phones on campus.
