Crime Reduction and Safety Fortnight 2017

Sheffield is reported to be the safest large city in the UK, but like any big city anywhere in the world it is not crime free.

25 September – 6 October 2017 is Crime Reduction and Safety Fortnight at the University of Sheffield.

Over these two weeks, staff and students from across the University will be out and about around campus raising awareness of how crime can affect students and the University community.

We’ll be answering questions, giving out freebies and demonstrating the best ways to keep your property, your bike and yourself as safe as possible.

Come visit us at our stand in the Diamond exhibition space every day from 10am-4pm. University Security staff and South Yorkshire Police will all be on hand to provide advice and to give out free personal attack alarms and other goodies. They will also be carrying out free property marking onto the Immobilise National database. If property is registered on the Immobilise database, it means that it is traceable back to you if it is ever stolen.

During Crime Reduction and Safety Fortnight, we’ll also be raising awareness of cycle safety and the precautions you need to take to keep your bike secure from thieves. Visit the Cycle Hut in the Arts Tower carpark for cycle marking services and to purchase Gold secure rated locks at a special subsidised rate of £15.

If you would like more information about staying safe as a student, please visit the Student Safety webpages on the University website.
