All of us want to be alerted to dangerous situations near our homes or workplaces so that we can take appropriate precautions. Campus alerts are posted by the Public Safety Department in an effort to make the Georgia Southern University community aware of potential dangers and informed about security and safety issues. Timely warnings will be posted on this site in the event of any incidents that represent a serious or continuing threat to the community.
April 26, 2013: DO NOT leave your iPhones, electronic items, book bags or other items of value unsecured for even the shortest amount of time. These items are being stolen primarily because they are being left unsecured. Leaving your valuables on bleachers, in a cubby, on the ground, on a desk, etc will result in your items being stolen. It only takes a few seconds for a thief to steal your items. If you see an unsecured item please report it to a GSU staff, faculty member or the GSU Police at 912-478-5234. If you see someone leave their item(s) unsecured please remind them not to leave their items unsecured. Let's work together to keep our campus safe from theft - secure your valuables.
