Timely Warnings

Upon receiving information about a crime or a threat to the safety or health of students, staff, faculty, and/or visitors, the safety department will, without delay provide a timely warning to all of the campus community, unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of the responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to or otherwise mitigate the emergency. Members of the community who know of a crime or other serious incident should report the incident to the Safety Office, by phone.
