Often referred to as "Crime Notices" or "Timely Warnings", Campus Security Alerts are meant to inform the campus community of a specific, or potential, safety or security concern.
Crime notice information empowers campus community members from becoming future targets by providing incident details, preventative measures, or additional resources that promotes safety.
Please note crime notices are referencing events that have already occurred are not necessarily “late.” In order for the notification to be effective, it needs to be accurate. This may require additional time to verify facts or incident details before informing the campus.
You may or may not receive any update messages on the status of these incidents.
This notification is disseminated when an immediate threat to campus has been identified and validated.
The emergency notification will provide you with basic incident information and instructions to help keep you safe. You may be asked to “shelter in place” or “evacuate [to a specific area]” or “stay away [from a specific area]”.
Emergency notifications will always provide a final message that lets you know when an incident has been resolved (this would be in addition to any emergency updates or instructions that may have been sent during the incident).
