Adelphi University has adopted and implemented a plan providing for the investigation of any missing student. These plans provide for the coordination of the investigation of missing students with local law enforcement agencies. This plan includes, but is not limited to, Memorandums of Understanding with the Garden City Police Department and the New York City Police Department. The University will notify the appropriate local law enforcement agency within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing, unless the local law enforcement agency was the entity that made the determination that the student is missing.
Any report of a missing student should be made immediately to the Dean of Student Affairs at 516.877.3660. If it is outside normal business hours, the report should be made to the Department of Public Safety at 516.877.3511. The Department will immediately contact the Dean of Student Affairs by telephone. Be prepared to give your name and phone number as well as provide all information possible regarding the missing person including a physical description, what they were wearing when they were last seen, where they were last seen, what physical condition they were in when last seen, if they are driving or have a vehicle and its description and who they were with. Be prepared to provide information on any medical or other special conditions that you know about.
