During the period from July 11 to July 19 IVC experienced two burglaries and one attempted burglary. A burglary and an attempted burglary occurred in the A200 building, and a burglary occurred in the PE 100 building. A burglary is when a "… person who enters any … building, with intent to commit grand or petit larceny …". These are not common occurrences at IVC.
Campus police are currently following-up on evidence from one of the burglaries and working with local merchants in hopes of identifying a suspect or suspects. We have also learned that El Camino College is experiencing a rash of burglaries, and we are working with them to determine if there is a connection.
Campus Police continually posts campus crime events on the Department's web site, under 'Crime Blotter'. To see the latest report, as well as past incidents, go to: http://www.ivc.edu/resources/police/blotter/default.aspx
Here are some burglary prevention tips that may both prevent and deter a criminal.
- If you leave your office…lock it. Keep your purse or wallet with you, or locked in a secure drawer or cabinet.
- Lock all business money or credit cards in a secure desk or cabinet.
- Keeping office and personal keys with you or locked in a secure location.
- If you discover something missing from your office such as equipment, a purse, or anything of value, call the local police and explain in detail what is missing.
- When something happens in the office - a theft, a burglary, an act of vandalism, call the campus police immediately.
If you witness a crime, stay calm, do not try to confront the person, especially if you are alone, and call campus police immediately. Write down a description of the person you saw. Important things to remember are: height, weight, race, age, hair color and haircut, complexion, facial hair, eyeglasses, color of eyes, scars or unusual marks. Describe clothing, jewelry, any weapon, and if a vehicle was used; and its color, make, and license number. Information on the direction of escape may help law enforcement officers find the thief or the stolen goods.
To prevent crime in or near campus buildings, you should report broken or flickering lights; dimly lit corridors, stairways and restrooms, unlighted parking lot areas, and doors and windows that won't lock or have broken glass panes.
