Any person 18 or older (and who is not otherwise legally prohibited) may purchase and carry a defensive spray California. Pepper spray (oleoresin capsicum) is the most common type of defensive spray, available at many hardware, drug, or general merchandise stores. If you decide to carry a defensive spray, and you are ever in a situation where you must use it against an attacker, after using your spray you should immediately
- get out of the area. Run in the opposite direction of your attacker if possible.
Women can get self-defense training on campus through the CalRAD program, a partnership between Gender Equity Resource Center, Cal Recreational Sports, Office of Student Development, and UCPD. CalRAD's Basic Physical Defense training follows the Rape Aggression Defense Systems model, a realistic approach that begins with tactics such as awareness, risk reduction and risk avoidance, then progresses to the basics of hands-on self-defense techniques. RAD aims to make self-defense a viable consideration for the woman who is attacked.
How long does it take?
(Reference §422.55 of the California Penal Code.)
Harassing or annoying phone calls might include calls made by pranksters randomly or calls made intentionally by people with whom you have been acquainted. They can include calls at hours when you are sleeping; frequent pointless calls; calls where the caller says nothing; or obscene calls.
Harrassing calls may be made with intent to fraud, but may also be made just so the caller can get a reaction from you. Most can be stopped if you use some simple techniques. Your telephone is for your personal use and service. It is under your control and you are not obligated to talk to anyone.
Identity theft and identity fraud are terms used to refer to all types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person's personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain. While nothing can guarantee that you won't become a victim of identity theft, you can minimize your risk, and minimize the damage if a problem develops, by making it more difficult for identity thieves to access your personal information.
- Protect your Social Security number.
- Treat your trash and mail carefully.
- Be on guard when using the Internet.
If a laptop is stolen, the loss of control of data could be just as disruptive as the loss of property. UCPD offers these recommendations to prevent laptop thefts, aid in the recovery of lost or stolen laptops, and control access to sensitive data.
Most thefts on campus are crimes of opportunity. Laptop theft is 99.9% preventable. Keep your laptop under your control at all times.
- Do not walk away from it, even for “a minute.” If you must sleep while you’re studying in the library, sleep on the laptop!
- Do not leave valuables in common areas.
