Vehicle Lockout

Public Safety possesses the tools necessary to assist if you have locked yourself out of your vehicle.

We do stress that we cannot always gain access to your vehicle.

Various conditions at times make it difficult to gain entry (electric locks, computerized locks, side door airbags, etc.) and the officer will always state to you that there may be a chance that there will be some damage to your lock as a result of the tool used.

We will try our best to assist you and if we are unable to gain entry to your vehicle we will assist you in contacting a local towing agency or garage that may be able to assist you, or even escort you to a location within a certain proximity.


If you are locked out of your vehicle and feel unsafe with your surroundings because it is after dark, locate one of the emergency telephones on and around campus and contact us right away (6611), or go to a well illuminated and well traveled area to get assistance.
