Timely Warnings


In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of Campus Security and/or the Executive Director of Facilities and Safety, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued. The warning will be issued through the college e-mail system to students, faculty, staff and the University website (www.cumberland.edu).

 

Campus Crime Alerts typically include the following information:

1. A succinct statement of the incident.

2. Any connection to previous incidents.

3. Physical description and/or composite drawing of the suspect, if appropriate.

4. Date and time the bulletin was released.

5. Other relevant and important information.

6. Appropriate safety tips.

 

Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the Campus Security and/or the Executive Director of Facilities and Safety may also post a notice on the CUAlerts system providing the university community with more immediate notification. In such instances, a copy of the notice is posted in each residence hall, at the front door of each classroom building, and in each public University building.
