You can play a key role in our crime prevention efforts. Be cautious, careful, alert to your own safety, and protective of both your property and that of the University.
Ongoing crime prevention efforts by IU Southeast include:
- Emergency phone system
- 24 hour police patrol
- Burglary alarms and surveillance cameras in key areas
- Crime prevention and safety seminars presented to any group requesting presentations
- Crime prevention and safety literature available at the University Police office
The University Police maintain a daily log of all crime reports filed with the department. The log includes the nature, date, time reported, general location of the crime and disposition if known. Entries are made to the log within two business days, unless the disclosure is prohibited by law or would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim. Information may be withheld if there is clear and convincing evidence that the release of the information would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection, or result in the destruction of evidence. Once the adverse effect is no longer likely to occur, the information must be disclosed.
The daily log for the most recent 60 days will be open to public inspection during normal business hours. Portions of the log older than 60 days will be available for public inspection within two business days of a request.
The IU Southeast Police Department employs both sworn police officers who are certified by the State of Indiana and meet state mandated training requirements. These officers have full police powers as granted by the State of Indiana (IC 21-39-4), and have access to national and state law enforcement computer networks.
Officers maintain a 24 hour presence on the IU Southeast campus every day. IU police officers have jurisdiction on any real property owned or occupied by the University, including the streets passing through and adjacent to such property. Our department also has an agreement of jurisdiction with the New Albany Police Department, Floyd County and Clark County Sheriff’s Office. IU police officers normally investigate all criminal offenses that occur in our jurisdiction. When necessary, our department will receive assistance from the Indiana State Police. The police department does not have a written memorandum of understanding with the Indiana State Police Department for their involvement in investigations. However, our department has an excellent working relationship with them and they assist us when requested.
