Campus Crime Alert 2016-01-26

UO-Header-p62azs.jpg

What is this notice? Campus Crime Alerts are released by the University of Oregon Police Department when certain crimes are reported on or near campus property, and in compliance with federal law. These timely warnings provide information about campus safety situations, and allow campus community members to take precautions for personal safety. All crimes should be reported as soon as possible to local law enforcement.

Please note this message may contain information that some may find upsetting.

A female University of Oregon student reported to UO Police that a man tried to rob her near campus, on Franklin Boulevard near Walnut Street at about 8:00 p.m. on January 26, 2016.

The woman reported that a man unknown to her approached her from behind, and tried to grab her bag as she was walking west on the north side of Franklin just west of Walnut, near the gas station. The two struggled, and the man fled east without the bag on Franklin on foot. The incident was reported shortly after 9:00 p.m.; police then searched the area but did not locate the suspect.

The woman described the suspect as a white male, about 6-foot-4, thin-to-medium build, brown hair, in his 20s, no facial hair, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a white zipper and white pull strings, jeans, black tennis shoes with white reflective Nike brand emblems at the ankles.

This incident is unresolved and an investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this or similar incidents should call UOPD at 541-346-2919 or EPD at 541-682-5111. Updates regarding this incident, when and if available, will be posted on the UOPD website at police.uoregon.edu.

SAFETY TIPS FROM UOPD

No action or inaction by a crime survivor makes that person responsible for his or her victimization. Perpetrators are responsible for crimes and their effects. The following suggestions may help reduce the possibility of experiencing such a crime, or may improve opportunities to receive prompt assistance.

  • It is a crime to intentionally touch someone against his or her will, regardless of the situation.
  • Bystanders should try to be aware of their surroundings, and if there are signs of a person in distress, bystanders should make themselves known and offer assistance if it is safe to do so, and/or seek immediate help from police or security personnel.
  • Every person and situation is different; survivors must decide for themselves what actions or responses are safest in any situation. If someone attempts to grab you, you have the right to yell “NO” loudly, or do whatever is necessary to get the person to let go, and flee to a safe place and seek help. When safe, try to remember as much as possible about the person’s appearance and behavior.
  • Assaults by strangers are far less common than assaults by people known to survivors, but such attacks do happen. Self-defense classes can prepare people to deter or escape an assault, and have benefits for improved awareness and confidence. Credit courses are available from the Physical Education department (http://uocatalog.uoregon.edu/pe_rec/#courseinventory) and from UOPD and SAPP (http://police.uoregon.edu/content/self-defense).
  • Students may use UO Safe Ride (541-346-RIDE ext. 2), call a taxicab, or contact UOPD for an on-campus escort (541-346-2919).
  • For emergencies or if you see a crime being committed, call 9-1-1. To report suspicious, illegal or unusual activity on campus, call UOPD at 541-346-2919.

RESOURCES AVAILABLE FOR SURVIVORS OF CRIME

Hoverboards prohibited due to fire concerns

UO-Header-p62azs.jpg

Dear Campus Community,
Effective immediately, the university is banning all hoverboards and similar types of electronic skateboards from all campus buildings due to the danger of fire and injury from the devices. The ban includes all housing and athletic facilities and all UO buildings in Portland and other areas.

This action is being taken to protect the campus community while federal officials continue an investigation into the safety of these devices. Fires resulting in injury and extensive property damage have been reported around the country and the world after the devices have overheated during recharging, and the university wants to ensure that the campus community is safe.

The ban does not affect any mobility or accessibility devices that are not recreational in nature.

Students living in residence halls who cannot immediately remove their hoverboards from campus will be able to store them until they can be moved. The university will provide a secure storage facility that has fire marshal approval for that use. Students who wish to use the storage area must first drain and remove the battery.

The federal Consumer Products Safety Commission is currently investigating the safety of hoverboard devices. If future improvements in the product allow them to be used and recharged without danger to individuals or property, the university will reconsider the ban.

Please direct any questions about the ban to me, the university fire marshal, appropriate department head, supervisor or resident assistant.

Thank you,

Krista Dillon, director, Emergency Management and Fire Prevention

Campus Regular Operations 1/4/16

January 4, 2016 – 5:10 am

The University of Oregon’s Eugene campus will operate on its normal schedule today – Monday, January 4th, 2016.

It is understood that not everyone will be able to travel to campus due to the continuing inclement weather. Members of the campus community are expected to use their best judgment in assessing the risk of coming to campus and returning home, based on individual circumstances. Those who believe that the road conditions from their homes are dangerous are urged and even expected to remain home.

Winter weather has arrived

Some winter weather has arrived; the UO Police Department advises the following safety tips:

Beware of slippery surfaces. Icy conditions are not always apparent. Taking small steps can help prevent slips and falls.

Don’t walk in the street. Streets are for vehicles and bikes, and pedestrians in the roadway can become a hazard for drivers or cyclists who are already contending with snow and ice.

Use crosswalks and be visible and purposeful. Cross streets at intersections, with the proper signals, and go straight across. Don’t go in a diagonal line and spend more time in the street than necessary. With the snow and ice, cars or bicycles will have a very hard time slowing, stopping or avoiding a pedestrian who is in the roadway.

Wear appropriate clothes. It’s cold. Exposed skin can become frostbitten or lead to other medical problems. Cover up and wear shoes that can take the snow and keep some traction. Even wearing a pair of heavy socks over your shoes can help provide extra traction.

Fenton Hall tree removal

On Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015, a downed cedar tree will be removed from the area near Fenton Hall. 13th Avenue will be closed to through traffic. As the Willamette Valley continues to experience rain and windy weather conditions, please use caution when traveling around and adjacent to campus. We appreciate cooperation with barriers and signage where work is occurring.
