Helpful fall season safety reminders

-

As we enter the fall season and see less and less daylight, Capitol Security and Visitor Services (CSVS) and the Washington State Patrol (WSP) would like to share a few safety tips for people out walking or jogging on the Capitol Campus, especially in the parks or isolated locations:

  • Always be aware of your surroundings
  • If you’re wearing headphones, try to just have one earbud in
  • Try to avoid secluded areas
  • Use the buddy system – there is safety in numbers
  • Let someone know where you will be
  • Wear bright colored clothing to increase visibility

As always, if you see something, say something:

  • Emergencies: If you experience or observe a life/safety emergency call 911 Immediately.
  • Non-emergencies requiring law enforcement response: Please call the WSP non-emergency phone number 360-596-4555.
  • Non-emergencies not requiring law enforcement or immediate security response on the Capitol Campus: Please call Capitol Security & Visitor Services (CSVS) at 360-407-9111.
