WHAT IS WHISTLESTOP?
WhistleStop is a safety awareness program designed to fight sexual assault and crime on campus. It is a way for students, faculty, and staff to actively work together to improve the safety of our College community.
HOW DOES WHISTLESTOP WORK?
If you hear a whistle, immediately locate the trouble and respond in the best way possible; call Campus Police at 911 and blow your own whistle to attract more help and startle the attacker. Whistles should be used ONLY IN AN EMERGENCY! (Using your whistle in a non-emergency situation may result in judicial action for falsely summoning police.) To protect yourself, always carry a whistle on your key chain and be ready to use it. Blow it loud, long, and repeatedly when you are in danger.
WHY A WHISTLE?
A whistle is a safe, non-violent material item that a person can carry with them at all times. Carry it on your key ring so that whistles are ready to use as you approach cars, residence halls, etc. The whistle is not a "cure-all," but it is a positive action we can take to be more aware of our own personal safety.
