Operation ID

Operation ID provides each hall office with an engraving tool that residents can check out in order to inscribe their name and any other identifying information onto their belongings. The residence hall office and the UT Arlington Police Department will keep a log of the serial numbers and descriptions of valuables.

Text books are also considered valuable personal property that are frequently targeted for theft on college campuses. Methods to help identify text books are therefore also a part of this program.

This also is a free bicycle theft prevention service. A student’s bicycle can be engraved and registered with the Police Department increasing the likelihood of it being found if lost or stolen.

Relationship Violence & Sexual Assault

The Relationship Violence & Sexual Assault Prevention (RVSP) Program offers education and awareness of sexual assault, dating violence and stalking. Support & referral services are available as well as an office for the advocacy for students impacted by violence.

You are not alone. You are never to blame.
