Crime Reporting (Clery Act)
If you see a crime, give us a call.
During Orientation, students and parents are informed of services offered by Campus Safety. In addition, they are told about crime on-campus and in the surrounding neighborhood. Crime prevention and awareness programs are offered by various campus organizations throughout the year. A common theme of all awareness and crime prevention programs is to encourage students and employees to be aware of their responsibility for their own safety and the security of their belongings.
Advising the Campus Community
Numerous efforts are made to advise members of the campus community in a timely manner about campus crime and crime-related problems. These efforts include:
In keeping with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, Campus Safety maintains a daily crime log that records criminal incidents by the date reported. The log includes nature of the crime, date and time the crime occurred, general location of the crime and the disposition of the complaint, if known. The Daily Crime Log is available for review at the Campus Safety office.
Daily Logs/Observation Reports/Incident Reports:
These logs and reports are distributed to senior administrators and selected members of the College community via email transmissions each business day. Copies may be requested from the director of Campus Safety.
The Annual Report:
The Guide to Campus Safety is a comprehensive report which is compiled, published, and distributed annually in compliance with the federal Clery Act. The report is distributed to all members of the campus community and is available to potential students and employees upon request. It is also available online at the Campus Safety Department website.
Special Alerts/Timely Warnings:
When circumstances warrant, special crime and incident alerts are prepared and distributed via hard copy and e-mail. Other methods may be utilized on a case-by-case basis, including the distribution of fliers in targeted areas, the OxyAlert Emergency Notification System, or on the College website.
Oxy Alert Emergency Notification System:
In the event of a major incident/emergency on campus, this warning system is activated. A siren sounds to alert the campus of the emergency situation and voice mail and text messages are sent to cell phones of persons who have enrolled as well as selected desk phones.
Crime Prevention Bulletins:
Bulletins are periodically prepared and distributed to raise awareness and encourage safety on a single topic.
Residence Hall Presentations:
Members of Campus Safety are available to attend "hall spreads" to present crime and incident information sessions, clarify policy or discuss other crime and/or safety related issues.
Student Newspaper and Radio Station:
The Occidental Weekly and KOXY are provided with summaries of incidents.
