Crime Prevention Tips


Personal Safety

While Skyline College, Cañada College and the College of San Mateo are very safe, from time to time, we still experience crime at our campuses. There are several prevention measures and a personal mindset that can help you avoice becoming a victim of a crime.

Three Basic Rules:

  • Stay alert: pay attention to your surroundings, don't have your face buried in your cell phone, and be aware of what is going on around you.
  • Be calm and confident: stand tall, walk purposefully, and make quick eye contact with people around you.
  • Trust your instincts: if a place or situation makes you uncomfortable, leave.
