Crime Prevention Programs
It is the philosophy of the College of Eastern Utah Police Department that it is better to prevent crimes from occurring than react to them after the fact. A primary vehicle for accomplishing this goal is the college’s comprehensive crime prevention program. This program is based upon the dual concepts of elimination or minimizing criminal opportunities, whenever possible, and encouraging students and employees to be responsible for their own security and the security of others. Below is a list of some of the crime prevention programs offered at the College of Eastern Utah:
Escort Program: (Price Campus Only) provide an escort service, particularly during hours of darkness, for persons walking on-campus.
Blue Phone: A blue security phone is located next to the Student Activity Center. This phone networks with the local 911 system. This phone should only be used for legitimate emergencies.
Residence Hall Security: Crime prevention presentations, also accompanied by brochures and other printed material, are made available to residence hall tenants.
Rape Awareness, Education, and Prevention: Rape awareness, education and prevention presentations are made each year to members of the campus community
Operation Identification: Employees and students are encouraged to engrave identifying numbers on personal property and to maintain an accurate inventory of their belongings. Engravers can be borrowed at no cost from the campus police.
Robbery Prevention Seminar: Cash handlers are taught what to do in case of robbery and how to identify suspects and preserve evidence.
Security Survey Program: Periodic security surveys of campus facilities provide suggestions for improving security of an area and improving safety of employees and students.
Housing Orientations: At least once a year, Housing Supervisors, Head Residents and Resident Assistants are taught how they can help prevent crime and assist students in not becoming victims of crime.

Sanctions: All violations of federal and state laws will be referred to the criminal courts. In addition, the college may impose sanctions prior to any criminal procedure. These sanctions will be in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct found in the College Catalog.
Campus Facilities & Residence Halls
The Physical Facilities Department, and residential life staff, maintains college buildings, grounds, and housing facilities, with concern for safety and security. They inspect these facilities regularly; promptly make repairs and respond 24-hours-a-day to reports of potential safety and security hazards.
USU Eastern PD, San Juan Campus Security and Physical Facilities personnel annually inspect the entire campus to review lighting and environmental safety concerns.
Employees and students are encouraged to report public safety concerns to the USU Eastern PD or San Juan Campus Security. Problems or safety concerns regarding the Price campus may also be reported to Physical Facilities by calling 613-5550, or in person at 500 North Veteran’s Lane, Price, Utah.
Hall security is monitored by full-time Head Residents and/or part-time Resident Assistants. It is the responsibility of Housing to develop procedures and programs which promote high standards for the safety and security of the residence halls and their tenants.
Housing and USU Eastern PD provide education programs emphasizing security awareness and giving direction on what residences can do to help secure the residence halls. Some of these ideas are listed below.
- Draw shades and curtains at night, whether you’re home or not, to prevent thieves from seeing in.
- Keep doors locked at all times - even if you’re inside the room sleeping, or leaving for only a few seconds. Lock the windows too.
- Keep money and jewelry locked in a safe place. Always keep all your valuables out of sight.
- Leave a light on while you’re away so your room will look occupied - and you will not return to a dark room.
Make a record of your valuables (including serial numbers). Keep it in a safe place.
- Avoid leaving a note that says you are not in. It is like putting out a welcome mat for thieves.
- Report broken locks, doors, windows and lights to maintenance or your landlord. Make sure they are properly repaired or replaced.
- Use a peephole to see who is at your door. If there is no peephole, ask who is there before opening the door. Ask for identification before letting a repair person, security guard etc., enter. Never let strangers in.
- Don’t hide a spare key outside your room, or leave your key unattended. Never loan keys or ID to anyone - even friends.
- Never prop doors open because anyone could walk in - for any reason!

What Do You Do if You Are a Rape Victim
If You are a Victim
Many victims/survivors of sexual assault/violence, don’t know where to turn for help or what to do after an assault. They may be ashamed to talk to anyone or they may try and act as if nothing has happened. They tend to blame themselves for something that was not their fault. They may feel alone and not know what to do or where to go for help. If you are a victim/survivor or know someone who is/has been, the suggestions listed below may help.
- Remember, it is not your fault.
- Get help quickly.
- Talk to someone you can trust or contact the Rape Crisis line (1-888-412- 1100). The Rape Crisis line can connect you with an advocate who is trained and on your side. The advocate can help you through the process and assist you in getting the resources you need.
- If the assault has just happened, don’t douche, bathe or change clothes until you have talked to someone such as an advocate, the police or sought medical help. Valuable evidence needed to seek legal action against your assailant may be destroyed
- If it has been awhile since the assault happened, don’t feel that it is too late. You can still report and it may be possible to still gather evidence.
- See medical help. One source of medical help is the Sexual Assault Resource Services Coordinator (435-613-5629) at the Student Health and Wellness Clinic on the Price Campus or Karolyn Romero (435-678-2201 ext. 161) on the San Juan Campus. They can assist you with getting the medical help you need, emergency contraception, an advocate, etc.
- Refer to phone numbers on back. These agencies are here to help assist you in getting the resources you need, with filing charges against assailant, changing living arrangements, etc.
Remember, it is not your fault and you are not alone. No one asks to be raped. No means No. Reporting can get you the help you need and possibly prevent your assailant from assaulting someone else.
Victims/survivors of sexual assault have several options. The College of Eastern Utah has a Sexual Misconduct policy which outlines your rights as a victim/survivor. These rights are outlined in the college catalog and on the USU Eastern website at: http://eastern.usu.edu/studentservice.htm#17 and http://az.ceu.edu/intratnet/student/SexHaras4-17.html
You may contact the Dean of Students (435-613-5207) or the Student Health & Wellness Clinic (435-613-5629) for more information about these policies.
Seek medical attention even if you don’t think you’ve been hurt. The best judge of injuries is a medical professional. Immediate medical care is essential to assure that you haven’t suffered internal injuries, pregnancy prevention, treatment for possible sexually transmitted infections (STI’s), as well as for collecting evidence.
Again, medical help should be sought as soon as possible. Even if you do not intend to report the sexual assault at this time, it is important to be examined in case you change your mind later and to receive medical attention you may need.
Campus Rape/Sexual Assault/Violence...Just the Facts
- Acquaintance rape/sexual assault is more common than left-handedness, heart attack or alcoholism. 84% know their attacker, and 57% of the rapes/sexual assaults happened on dates.
- 1 in 4 college women are the victims of rape/sexual assault and attempted rape/sexual assault
- 75% of male students and 55% of female students involved in a date rape/sexual assault, had been drinking or using drugs. Although drugs and alcohol do not give an offender an excuse to commit a sex crime, it can make the offender and/or the victim feel more relaxed, thus placing them in al situation that they normally would avoid.
- Victims/survivors of rape/sexual assault, are three times more likely to experience a major depression. Emotional support is very important. Take advantage of any counseling services available to you.
- 25% of women who reported rape did not report until over 24 hours after the rape occurred. Rape/sexual assault has long been recognized as one of the most under-reported of all crimes. You can file a report at any time.
- Sexual violence has nothing to do with how the victim/survivor is dressed. It is a crime of power, control and violence - not lust. Rapist thrive on vulnerability and opportunity - not sex appeal.
- In 2002, one in every eight rape victims were male. 98% of the time, men are sexually assaulted by one or more heterosexual males.
Remember, if you or someone you know is a survivor of rape/sexual assault, this was not your fault and you made the best choices and decisions possible at that time.
