What Would You Do in These Clery Crime Scenarios?

Here’s an analysis of the crime and why the school must issue a timely warning:

  • Robbery = Clery crime
  • Between Smith Hall & Rec Center = on campus = part of Clery Geography
  • Report made to administration and security
  • Ongoing threat? = Yes, because suspect has not been apprehended

Furthermore, here’s an example of a well-written timely warning:

CAMPUS ALERT 4/8/19 2:03 p.m.

An armed robbery was reported near Smith Hall and the Recreation Center.

Suspect was described as a short male with a green sweatshirt and jeans; his face was covered.

He has not been apprehended. Last seen running behind the Rec Center to the northeast.
