Safety Escort Service information

Posted: October 08, 2009

ASU’s Safety Escort Service has apparently received calls from female students reporting that a man in a white van contacted them claiming to be from Safety Escort Services and asking for their phone number.

ASU student government representatives have contacted ASU police to report what they have heard from these students. However, ASU police currently have no reports from any students that this is occurring.

ASU students can keep in mind that Safety Escort Service representatives drive marked ASU vehicles and they all wear safety escort uniforms. Students may request a safety escort by calling (480) 965-1515. 

Students are also reminded of these safety tips:

• Never get into vehicles with strangers.

• Never give personal information including your name and phone number to anyone you don’t know.

• If you are contacted by someone claiming to be with Safety Escort Services when you did not request a safety escort, call 911 immediately.

• Or, use one of the blue emergency call boxes located throughout campus.

• If you are ever contacted by anyone who is suspicious or makes you feel uncomfortable, call 911.
