ROAR

The goals of ROAR are to increase awareness and empower individuals to take an active role in ensuring their own safety and that of others in their community.

A Handy Guide to Safety for UCR Residents

Stay alert. Be aware of your immediate environment at all times.

  • Limit distractions. While walking, especially at night, don't talk and text on your cell phone, or listen to music.
  • Make eye contact with drivers, bicyclists and other pedestrians to ensure that you are being seen.
  • Be familiar with your surroundings so you can spot areas of concern (then act and/or report).

Increase your safety and security, and that of others, by following these steps:

  • Lock your doors and windows. Keep personal belongings out of view.
  • Keep your keys/cards available for quick use.
  • Use well-lit and high-traffic pathways.
  • Do not allow unknown individuals, even students, access to restricted areas in the community.
  • Register your bike with Transportation & Parking Services.

Communicate anything that seems threatening. Inform people in a position to help.


Crisis Response Training

Being prepared is your best defense. Learn how to respond to an active shooter incident by taking the UCPD Crisis Response Training. You will learn how to use and implement RAIN (Respond, Assess, Isolate, and Notify) and the “Run, Hide, Fight” response tactics effectively.
