Driving and Vehicle Safety
Lock your doors while driving and when you get out;
Have your keys in hand before you reach your car;

Protect Your PropertyLaptopsLaptops and other portable electronic devices are easy targets for theft. In addition to the cost of replacement, they often have personal information and intellectual property that can be difficult or impossible to recover and protect. The University of Michigan Department of Public Safety is offering a free Laptop Registration Program to members of the campus community to deter theft. If your laptop is found or recovered, the registration record will help DPS return your laptop to you. Visit the DPS Web site for more details and to register your laptop. Home
Special Notes for Lawyers Club Residents If you are a resident of the Lawyers Club living on a ground floor apartment, your windows, screens, and doors should be closed and locked when you are alone or asleep. The Lawyers Club has established an extra safety measure for women’s restrooms. A combination lock, with combination number known only to female Lawyers Club residents, has been installed in order to provide an extra measure of privacy and safety.
