Since the incident, police say they've increased patrol efforts and saturated patrolmen around dorms and classrooms.
There are over 300 access controlled doors that can only be opened with a ULM ID card. There are also 850 security cameras set up throughout campus.
In addition, ULM police provide an escort service for students who are walking alone to another point on campus.
Despite the security efforts, ULM police still have safety advice to give to students.
"Always look for suspicious vehicles, suspicious persons and call university police as soon as you see that person," said Steve Mahan with ULM Police. "We also have 23 call boxes located throughout campus. Try to use the buddy system when walking throughout campus, don't walk alone."
More safety advice:
- Faculty, staff and students should ensure doors are locked when necessary.
- Always report any outdoor lights that are out on campus.
- If you see a crime, please report it immediately.
- Never prop open access doors or doors leading into the dorms.
Campus police say they are at their maximum patrol effort, but are currently understaffed by two policemen. They hope to have those positions filled in the next few weeks.
