Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

What are Timely Warnings? In compliance with the “Timely Warning” provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act of 1998, Norwich University issues timely warnings to the entire campus community when there is information that a Clery Act Crime has occurred on or near the University that is considered by the institution to represent a serious or continuing threat to campus safety.

The Chief of Public Safety or designee, in consultation with University senior leadership, makes the decision whether to issue a timely warning on a case-by-case basis in light of all the facts surrounding the incident. Timely warnings are issued as soon as possible after the Department of Public Safety is notified; however, the release of the warning is subject to the availability of accurate facts concerning the incident.

Criteria to be evaluated may include:

  • The nature of the crime

  • The continuing danger to the campus community
  • The possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts

Timely warnings include information that promote safety and would aid in the prevention of similar crimes, including, but not limited to:

  • Brief description of the crime(s) that occurred

  • Date and time when the crime(s) occurred
  • Location of the crime(s)

  • Possible connections between incidents (if applicable)
  • Description of suspect(s) and/or any available information to aid in the apprehension of the offender(s) (if applicable)

  • Recommended actions
  • Precautions for the campus community to protect itself

  • Description of crime reporting options at the University

Timely warnings are issued to the University community through one or more electronic communications, including, but not limited to: my.norwich.edu, university e-mail with the assistance of the Director of Communications or designee, the Department of Public Safety’s webpage, and/or social media outlets.

Every effort is made to prevent identifying victims of crime.
