Crime Bulletins

The purpose of crime bulletins is to alert the campus community promptly to potentially dangerous criminal situations on campus.  This provides the community with the time and information necessary to take appropriate precautions.  The decision to issue a timely warning is decided on a case-by-case basis by UKPD and is done so by taking into consideration the facts surrounding the crime, including the nature of the crime, continuing danger to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.
