The University Police Operations Division, within the Department of Public Safety, offers a number of programs that promote security awareness and crime prevention. All University Police officers are dedicated to crime prevention and facilitate programs for students, staff, faculty, and the community by providing a variety of educational strategies and tips on how to protect themselves and their property. In addition to departmental programs, the Police Department cooperates with other units on campus to present security and safety programs. A common theme of all programs is to encourage students and employees to be aware of their responsibility for their own security and the security of others.

CHOICES - is a brief alcohol abuse prevention and harm reduction program for college students involving interactive journaling. The CHOICES program involves a 90-minute, peer-facilitated class. Throughout the course students are presented with information and then they are able to reflect on what they have learned as it relates to their choices about drinking in their personal journals. The CHOICES program is presented in a non-confrontational manner that enables students to make their own decisions about alcohol consumption. Because the central focus of this program is to help students make informed choices the journal is set up to provide participants with information and then they are asked to apply what they have learned in a series of self-reflective questions.
