OUPD safety suggestions

Chief Mark Gordon’s safety suggestions


If you meet someone online and are going to meet them face-to-face, bring a friend. Also, know the place you’re going to meet so you know potential escape routes, and meet in a public place.


Walk in pairs or groups after dark.


Stick to a well-lit path.


Be aware of your surroundings.


Walk with purpose and have your keys in your hand if you’re going to your car.


Students can call OUPD at (248) 370-3331 and have a patrol car follow them to their destination.
