Crime Bulletins

If a situation or incident is not immediately life threatening or is contained, a crime bulletin may be posted to provide a timely warning to the university community. Crime bulletins are issued when pertinent information is available and may also include relevant safety tips.  Unless an on-going threat is present, Crime Bulletins may be removed at the end of each semester.
