Harassment

Prevention

Campus Security encourages SFU community members to take advantage of the various personal security options available to the community, such as Safe Walk and Lone Worker programs, as well as the emergency phones which are located across campus.

Signs

Warning signs of criminal harassment may include some of the following behaviours:

  • Someone is repeatedly threatening you
  • Someone is following, waiting and/or watching you
  • Someone is damaging your property
  • Someone is repeatedly calling or sending things to you, your friends or family
  • You have changed your lifestyle because of such actions
  • You cannot do or go where you want
