How Campus Police Activities Affect You

Timely Warning Policy

The UTHSC Campus Police in consultation with the Executive Vice Chancellor or his/her designee is responsible for issuing timely warnings in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act, 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f) et seq.

Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to UTHSC PD. In the event that a situation arises that requires issuance of a warning, these warnings are provided in order to keep the campus community informed about safety and security matters on an ongoing basis and in an effort to prevent similar crimes from occurring.

The decision to issue a timely warning shall be decided on a case by case basis in compliance with the Act and considering all available facts surrounding the campus community, whether the crime is considered a serious or continuing threat to students or employees and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.

Timely warnings are usually issued for the following classifications:

  • arson
  • burglary
  • robbery
  • aggravated assault
  • criminal homicide
  • motor vehicle theft
  • sex offenses
  • any other crimes as deemed necessary

Upon receipt of all relevant information, such warnings will typically be issued within twenty-four hours.
