TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening all day today, thousands of students will pour into the University of Arizona and get a welcome from the officers on campus who will be keeping them safe.

Students have been showing up at McKale Center, to sign in and get their room keys and they are being met by some of the officers from the University of Arizona Police Department. 

UAPD officers are making their presence known to incoming students on move-in day, by stopping in hallways and saying hello. 

Next week UAPD officers will be spread out all over the campus, sitting at intersections, and talking to students about the rules of driving and walking on campus.  Officers will also talk about property crimes, like bike theft, which is the number one crime on campus. 

Many of these policies were covered during student orientation, one of which was student conduct.  The main message UAPD would like to convey to incoming students is to have a plan if leaving with friends.  UAPD recommends that students know who is going, how they are getting there and when they will be leaving.

Because incoming students are becoming more and more tech savvy, UAPD recommends using social networks for safety purposes – sending off a text message, updating a status or even checking in on foursquare are among the ways students can help stay safe.
