Increase in Thefts District wide

 

With the start of a new semester the El Paso Community College Police Department would like welcome all new and returning students and faculty. Since August 2012 we have seen an increase in thefts involving personal items such as phones, books, wallets, and parking decals. We ask for everyone to do their part in safeguarding personal property and should your valuables be stolen we ask that you call Campus Police to report the theft. Thinking that it can only happen to someone else and doing nothing to prepare yourself or take precautionary measures makes you the perfect victim. The El Paso Community College Police Department offers some crime prevention suggestions towards protecting your valuables.

 

  • Lock your vehicle
  • Never leave your valuables out of your sight
  • Be aware of your environment, leaving a book on the table while you get a drink or food is not a good idea.
  • Immediately report any suspicious activity to Police

MISSION DEL PASO CAMPUS ALERT

 

The EPCC Police Department is sending an alert to all faculty, staff and students of the Mission Del Paso Campus to raise the awareness about a Rabid Bat that was caught by the gym area. The bat tested positive for rabies.

 

At this time the EPCC Police Department is working with animal control to implement measures to deter any more bats from the area. Please be aware of these creatures and do not attempt to capture them or instigate them in any way.

 

It is also important that no food or water be left out in the open as these can attract not only the bats but other desert creatures.
