All of us want to be promptly alerted to potentially dangerous criminal situations near our homes or workplaces, so that we have both the time and the information necessary to take appropriate precautions.  When the campus IUPD Chief or his/her designee has determined that a Clery Act crime is occurring on campus and that the incident may pose a serious or continuing threat to members of the campus community, the campus IUPD Chief or his or her designee is responsible for issuing a timely warning to notify members of the community of the situation.

Timely warnings are usually distributed for crimes classified as arson, criminal homicide, robbery, aggravated assault, sexual assault, and other sexual offenses. In deciding whether or not to issue a warning, the campus IUPD Chief examines the facts of each incident on a case-by-case basis, and considers when and where the incident occurred, when the incident was reported, and any other information available to the IUPD.  For example, if an assault occurs between two students who have a disagreement, there may be no ongoing threat to other university community members; therefore, a timely warning would not be distributed.  Timely warnings may be distributed for other crimes as deemed necessary by the campus IUPD Chief or his or her designee.

Warnings are generally written by the campus IUPD Chief or his or her designee, and are issued by the IUPD.  IU-Notify is used to send timely warnings and updates to members of the university community by email, text message, and/or telephone.  On a case-by-case basis, other means of distribution may be used, including:

  • University website www.ius.edu
  • The Horizon newspaper
  • Posted in campus buildings-printed on orange paper and posted in the lobby/entrance area of the affected building(s) for seven days
  • Face to face
