    Crime Prevention

    Theft is the most frequently-reported crime on the University of Missouri Kansas City Campus. The majority of the thefts are of unattended personal property.


    Computer Security

    • Never provide addresses, social security numbers, or last names in online content chat rooms or forums.
    • Always make sure you log off your e-mail account when you are done and close open windows to reveal open sessions you may have forgotten.
    • Never give your passwords to e-mail accounts, network accounts or other password-protected services to anyone. Giving access to e-mail accounts to anyone except the person it is assigned to is strictly prohibited by University policy.
    • Back up important data to a removable storage media and save often
    • When using a laptop or notebook computer, never leave it unattended. Utilize a cable locking system to secure it to a desk or chair.


    Personal Property

    • Secure valuables left in your dorm room or vehicle.
    • Lock the door and windows to your room when you leave, when you are sleeping, or are in the bathroom.
    • Engrave all valuable objects with a unique number such as your driver's license number.
    • Lock up your bicycle.
    • Use a lock on your gym locker
    • DO NOT LOAN or give your keys to anyone.
    • Do not leave your keys unattended, anywhere.
    • Do not leave books, bags, purses, wallets, or any other possessions unattended even for a moment.
    • Keep a written record of valuables, including descriptions and serial numbers. These are proof that the property is yours and will aid in the reporting process and recovery.
