The University Police Department publishes a “Police Alert” within forty-eight hours of a significant criminal offence. This outlines the nature and facts of the crime. It is made available to faculty, staff, and students. Its intent is to warn the campus community to the specific type of criminal activity occurring.
Crime statistics are prepared monthly by the University’s Chief of Police.
Procedures for reporting and counseling after a sexual assault can be found under “Sexual Assault Policy“.
The University Police speak at the Freshman Year Experience, residence meetings, campus crime prevention meetings, new faculty orientation, faculty assembly, as well as other special events. At these annual events, police discuss campus policies, procedures, and crime prevention tips. Officers in the University Police Department are certified in Rape Crisis Intervention. They conduct awareness discussions on this topic throughout the year.
