In the event of a campus emergency, there are four types of
alerts that may be sent to the university community.
Provide notice of currently occurring significant
emergencies or dangerous situations that present an imminent threat
to the health or safety of students and employees on
campus and that may require your immediate action.
Examples: Armed intruder on campus, approaching
Provide warnings of certain criminal
activity that is believed to present a serious or
continuing threat to students and employees.
Examples: Rash of burglaries on the South 40, Robbery
Inform members of the community or specific groups
within the community of certain criminal activity that has occurred and
is brought to the attention of WUPD but does not present a serious or
continuing threat, so individuals can take extra precaution more
Example: Robbery on the Greenway Path or in Delmar
Notify members of the community or specific groups
within the community of less serious crimes or provide additional
information with respect to incidents that
may be of interest to them.
Example: A rash of
bicycle or electronics thefts, or a series of car break-ins in the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood
