The Universities Neighbourhood Police Team would like to remind all students about the importance of keeping yourselves and your friends safe when on a night out. Please remember to always think of your personal safety and avoid becoming a victim.
Here are a few simple tips to help you to stay safe and enjoy your nights out.
- Make sure you stay with your friends, especially if they are drunk - don’t leave them vulnerable and alone
- Always plan how you’re getting home and ensure you keep money aside for a licensed taxi or bus
- Never walk home alone and don’t go home with someone you barely know
- Don’t drink to the extent that it affects your judgement.
Visit our safety & personal security webpages or the Dorset Police website for further information, and check out SUBU's Safe Measures Safe Students booklet which includes details about their Safe Walk and Safe Taxi schemes to get your home safely if you're ever stuck for cash at the end of a night out.
