Something Stolen: what to do

Liverpool is rated as amongst the safest cities, but it is still wise to take steps to make sure you are safe at home and while out and about. Here you will find information and resources about staying safe and keeping your personal possessions safe while out and about on campus and around the city.

Keeping safe from crime

Register your valuables for free on the immobilise database and improve your chances of getting them back should they be stolen.

If you are a cyclist, the University's bike lock gated compounds are equipped with lighting, panic alarms and always use proximity cards for access.

Liverpool Student Homes have information about keeping your home safe and secure.

What to do in an emergency

If you are in immediate danger, you should call 999. If you are unable to speak during this call, press 55 to trigger a recorded message, and 55 after the message to confirm you still need help.

Calls to the emergency services are free and can be made from any telephone.

When you call the emergency services on 999, you will be asked what service you need. There are four  emergency services:

  • Police
  • Ambulance
  • Fire Service
  • HM Coastguard.

If you need more than one service, ask for the most urgent and the operator will talk you through getting all the services you need.

What to do if you have been a victim of a crime

In the unfortunate event that you have been a victim of crime, it is important that you reported it immediately to the Police and to the University’s campus support.

If it is an emergency, call 999, otherwise, you can report any incident of crime to the police by calling call 101.
