    UOPD Safety/Security Advisory 2015-12-07

    December 7th, 2015


    Over the holidays, criminals target residences that may be vacant; this is especially true near campus, where students are known to often be away from Eugene for the winter break.

    The Eugene Police Department and University of Oregon Police Department are sharing these simple tips to help campus community members protect their property:

    • When away, keep doors and windows locked and window coverings closed.
    • Don’t leave valuables visible through windows.
    • Take valuables with you over holidays or long trips.

    For even more security:

    • Ask a trusted neighbor to alert you or law enforcement in the event of suspicious activity.
    • Have mail or package delivery held or re-routed if you will be gone for more than a few days.
    • Set lights on timers to give the appearance that the residence is occupied.

    For vehicle security:

    • Park vehicles in busy, well-lit areas (or a secured parking facility).
    • Use a steering wheel lock and vehicle security system.
    • Never leave any property in a parked vehicle—especially shopping bags or presents.
    • Report crimes immediately. Off-campus, contact Eugene Police at 541-682-5111. On-campus, contact UOPD at 541-346-2919. In all emergencies in all locations, call 9-1-1.

    For bike security:

    • If possible, keep bikes secured indoors over the break (where rental agreements or contracts allow).
    • Use secure bike cages if available.
    • Don’t leave bikes locked up outdoors unused and unmonitored.
    • When locking bikes outdoors, always use a good U-shaped lock, use a bike rack in a highly visible area, and consider removing and stowing parts or accessories that cannot be secured by the U-lock (such as seats, quick-release wheels, lights, etc.).

    Remember, report crimes right away to your local law enforcement agency (9-1-1 in emergencies; or 541-346-2919 on-campus, or 541-682-5111 off-campus in Eugene).

    Have a safe, secure break and holiday season!

    Campus Crime Alert 2015-12-05

    December 5th, 2015

    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.

    Two armed robberies with very similar suspect descriptions were reported to police near the University of Oregon campus on Saturday morning, December 5, 2015.

    In the first incident, a man reported to Eugene Police around 4:45 a.m. that he was robbed at gunpoint near 20th Avenue and Patterson Street. The suspect was described as a black male wearing all black clothing, about 5-foot-10, and was reported to have pointed a gun and demanded valuables including a cell phone.

    In the second incident, a female UO student reported to UO Police via campus emergency phone, that at about 5:05 a.m. she was robbed at gunpoint near the Delta Delta Delta sorority, 851 E. 15th Ave. She described the suspect as a black male in his early 20s, clean-shaven, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark puffy jacket, and dark jeans. The suspect reportedly pointed at the woman and demanded valuables including a cell phone. The suspect then fled west.

    After police received the report, UOPD and Eugene Police thoroughly searched the area by vehicle and foot and a K-9 unit, but did not locate the suspect. 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.


    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. 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.


    • Survivors have a right to report crimes to police and have crimes investigated and/or prosecuted to the fullest extent possible.
    • Call 541-346-SAFE at any time or visit safe.uoregon.edu to learn about options and resources.
    • For students, a range of support services are available through the Office of the Dean of Students, 541-346-3216; uodos@uoregon.edu.
    • For students, personal counseling and other support services are available through the University Counseling and Testing Center, 541-346-3227 (available 24 hours); counseling.uoregon.edu/dnn.
    • For students, medical and sexual assault examination services are available at University Health Center, 541-346-2770; healthcenter.uoregon.edu.
    • For employees, the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity, 541-346-3123, and Office of Human Resources, 541-346-3159, can assist in connecting to resources.
    • Other community resources available are Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS), 541-343-7277 (24 hour crisis line) or 541-484-9791, Womenspace, 541-485-8232 or 541-485-6513 (24 hour crisis line), and White Bird Clinic Counseling, 541-342-8255 541-687-4000 (24 hour crisis line).
