Concordia Public Safety reminds everyone to be diligent in their personal safety practices: use the Campus SafeWalk system by calling 218.299.3123, never walk alone, instead, use the 'buddy' system, always lock doors and windows at your residence even if you are home, park your vehicle in well-lit areas and always lock your car doors, and always report suspicious activity to the authorities.
