Tulane University Department of Public Safety News

Congratulations to the Tulane University Class of 2018! We are proud to have been your police department for your time here at Tulane. We wish all the graduates (which includes several of our own officers) the best of luck in future endeavors! 💙

Annually, following Commencement, members of the Tulane University Police Department remove bicycles that are locked to fixed objects (bicycle racks, handrails, trees, etc.). Abandoned bicycles take up valuable space on campus bicycle racks for the upcoming summer programs, and make the university a target for potential incidents of theft. This year, bicycle removal will occur May 23, 24 and 25. Bicycle removal will be accomplished between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. on these dates, so as to not interfere with those who commute by bicycle during regular business hours. Faculty, staff and students should not allow for their bicycles to remain on campus overnight during this date range. If a bicycle must be left on campus overnight, please mark this bicycle as being in use by wrapping brightly colored ribbon on the handlebars. Residents of the uptown campus can either get a length of brightly colored ribbon from their area desk assistant, or temporarily store their bicycles in their residence hall rooms during these dates. If your bicycle is collected by mistake, you may contact Detective David Harris, the Tulane University Police Department evidence custodian, or James Morton at property@tulane.edu in order to schedule an appointment to have your bicycle released, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If your bicycle remains in the custody of the Tulane University Police Department for more than 180 days, it will be marked for destruction or donation to a local charity in accordance with Louisiana Revised Statute 33:2333. If you are interested in donating your bicycle to a local charity before the bicycle removal dates or any other questions, please email your questions to property@tulane.edu.

TUPD would like to wish all of our students good luck on their finals!

Happy Monday everyone! TUPD and Allied Universal share information on a daily basis to help keep you safe

UPDATE: Suspect Arrested in Off-Campus Sexual Battery Incidents As a result of recent assaults near the Tulane University Uptown campus in which the perpetrator has grabbed the buttocks of several women, TUPD officers began conducting targeted patrols of the area in an attempt to apprehend the perpetrator. At approximately 11:38 am on Sunday February 25, 2018 TUPD officers identified a person of interest matching the description provided by victims. Investigation resulted in the apprehended subject being turned over to the NOPD Sex Crimes Unit where he was ultimately booked into the Orleans Parish Jail on charges of sexual battery. TUPD along with NOPD continue to investigate all reported incidents and urge anyone with additional information to contact either agency. INVESTIGATION ONGOING If you have any information about these crimes, call TUPD at 504-865-5381 or NOPD at 504-821-2222.

Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind this holiday shopping season: -Keep a record of all of your credit card numbers in a safe place at home. -Notify the credit card issuer immediately if your credit card is lost, stolen or misused. - Be extra careful if you carry a wallet or purse. They are the prime targets of criminals in crowded shopping areas. - If you must use an ATM, choose one that is located inside a police station, mall, or well-lit location. Withdraw only the amount of cash you need! Protect your pin! -Be aware that thieves steal holiday packages delivered to your doorstep. Monitor your tracking numbers and have someone available for deliveries. -Do online shopping with business you trust. Know who you are buying from!
