Walking After Dark

UTRGV Police Department also offers the following tips for walking at night:

  • Avoid walking or jogging alone at night. Instead, go walking or jogging with a friend.
  • If you cannot find someone to walk with you, then contact the University Police at 316-7151 for an escort to your destination.
  • Do not use headphones while walking, driving, or jogging.
  • Always walk in well-lighted areas.
  • Avoid the use of shortcuts.
  • After dark, keep away from large bushes or doorways where someone could be lurking.
  • If someone in a vehicle stops and asks for directions, answer from a distance. Do not approach the vehicle.
  • If followed, go immediately to an area with lights and people. If needed, turn around and walk in the opposite direction.
  • If someone in a car follows you and is persistent or becomes obscene, write down the license plate number and report it to the University Police as soon as possible.
  • Do not display cash openly, especially when leaving an ATM.
