Notification to the Campus Community
In addition to publishing an annual security report, The University Police Department informs the campus community about campus crime in a number of ways, including the following:
Daily Crime Log – This log records by the date the crime was reported, any crime that occurred on campus or within the patrol jurisdiction of the University Police Department. This log notes the nature, date, time and general location of each crime and the disposition of the complaint, if known. The log is available upon request from the Records Office at the University Police Department.
Media Log – A media log is distributed to entities on campus and a listing of crimes on campus is published in the Daily Titan student newspaper. The University Police Department also works in partnership with the Daily Titan to publish information related to crime and campus safety issues.
Timely Warnings – In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that in the judgment of the Chief of University Police, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide Crime Alert Bulletin will be issued. The bulletin will be issued through the campus email system to students, faculty and staff. It will also be issued through the Daily Titan. Depending on the circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, copies of the Crime Alert Bulletin will be posted in the residence halls, in the Titan Student Union and on doorways to any buildings where individuals could be impacted by the Alert. In some instances, a copy of the bulletin will also be posted on the University Police Department's website.
The University Police Department works closely with the Dean of Students Office, Environmental Health and Instructional Safety, Counseling and Psychological Services, the WoMen's Center, and Human Resources in an effort to educate students, residents and employees in crime awareness and crime prevention.
