Safety Alerts

Timely Warning Policy

In the event that a situation arises, that, in the judgment of the Chief of Police, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat to persons; a campus "timely warning" will be issued. The warning will be issued to students, faculty and staff through the "Campus Watch" e-mail publication and will be posted on the Police Department's website.  Such website posting will be identified as a "Special Alert". 

Determinations by the Chief of Police will be made on a case by case basis.  Warnings may be delayed if sufficient information is not available or if the warning may compromise an ongoing law enforcement effort.
