Safety Resources for College Students

Public Safety Talk at PCNA

Today Crime Prevention Coordinator Jacob Brostoff, Portland Police Bureau Officer McCormick and representatives from other organizations led a safety discussion with new students at PCNA.

It’s that time of year when many students are going off to college to live on their own for the first time. Now is a good time to talk about steps that they can take to protect their property and enhance their personal safety. This area is often overlooked in the midst of such a significant transition.

Here are a few resources that college students can check out to raise their awareness:
