In the event that a Clery crime occurs on or near campus that, in the judgment of the Adelphi University Assistant Vice President of Public Safety and Transportation or designee, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued to the campus community.
As soon as pertinent information is available, the Department of Public Safety and Transportation will evaluate the need to issue a timely warning based upon the following conditions:
In determining whether to issue a timely warning, on a case-by-case basis, the University will consider all the facts surrounding the crime including factors such as: the nature of the crime, the continuing danger to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts. In compliance with the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, the names of crime victims will not be published in timely warnings.
The intent in issuing a timely warning is to enable members of the campus community to protect themselves and to aid in the prevention of similar crimes. Timely warnings will be distributed via methods reasonably likely to reach the entire campus community. This is typically accomplished via the use of the Adelphi Public Safety website at http://administration.adelphi.edu/publicsafety, and the University email system.
Once the decision has been made to issue a timely warning, the Department of Public Safety and Transportation is responsible for distributing the warning. Anyone with information they feel warrants a timely warning should immediately contact Public Safety at 516.877.3511 or in person at the Public Safety Command Center located the west side of Levermore Hall.
Adelphi University will immediately notify the campus community, or segment(s) of the community, when there is confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation that poses an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees and is currently occurring on the campus or immediately threatening the campus. The Department of Public Safety and Transportation will utilize all information resources at its disposal to confirm there is an emergency and to determine which segments of the campus community must be warned.
An emergency notification may apply to both criminal and non-criminal incidents and can include but is not limited to: weather or natural disaster events, public health emergencies, hazardous materials spills or gas leaks, riots or armed intruders.
The Assistant Vice President of Public Safety or designee, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success, Dean/Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs, Vice President for Communications or the Senior Vice President and Treasurer, will without delay, and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the emergency notification system, unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist a victim or contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. In the event of a serious incident that poses an immediate threat to members of the Adelphi community, the Department of Public Safety and Transportation will activate various electronic, public address systems and text message notifications in place for communicating information quickly. Some or all of these methods of communication may be activated in the event of immediate threat to the Adelphi community. As needed, follow-up information will be provided to the community as well as at the conclusion of the immediate threat/emergency utilizing the same systems as the initial emergency notification.Special Note: University Mass Notification System
The Department of Public Safety and Transportation tests the University Mass Notification System at least once every calendar year, and such tests may be announced or unannounced. The campus also tests its emergency response and evacuation procedures on at least an annual basis. Furthermore, emergency tabletop exercises are conducted on an annual basis.
SMS notifications in place for communicating information quickly. Some or all of these methods of communication may be activated in the event of immediate threat to the Adelphi community.
