Timely Warning

The Department of Public Safety, in consultation with the Dean of Students, is responsible for issuing timely warnings in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act.

Any individual who notices suspicious or unlawful or dangerous activity or is the victim of such activity should notify Public Safety at ext 1292 or at the office, Admin 122.  As soon as possible after the incident report, the Director of Public Safety, Dean of the College, Dean of Students, and Director of Marketing and Public Relations will meet to determine if and when a timely warning should be issued.  The decision to issue a timely warning shall be decided on a case by case basis in compliance with the Clery Act and will consider all facts available at that time.  The timing of the notification shall be based upon whether the circumstances present a serious or continuing threat to students or employees and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.

A timely warning will be issued by one or more of the following steps:

    Use of the SendWordNow notification system.
    Distribution of a campus wide email
    Distribution of timely warning flyers around campus
    Posting the warning on the College website and Portal

Warnings may include, but are not limited to:

    Type of incident
    Date, time and location of incident
    Suspect information and description

Warnings may be updated as new information becomes available.
