Christmas caution
CEP would like to remind everyone on campus to be aware of petty theft leading up to the Christmas holidays. Incidents of petty theft on campus rise in proportion to the increase in money being collected for parties and charity and stored in desk drawers and filing cabinets, and all the gifts stashed in offices or automobiles. CEP suggests not leaving cash in the office overnight and not leaving valuables and packages in your car.
