Reporting an Emergency, Criminal Acts, or a Safety Hazard
All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to report all criminal acts and safety hazards. The proper reporting procedure is to contact campus safety officers. These officers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. In the event a real emergency (if imminent danger to life exists) the Prescott Police/Fire Department - 911 systems should be utilized. Once this is done, contact the Campus Safety office. This will allow the campus Safety office to direct emergency services to the proper location on campus, it will also facilitate proper reporting, resource utilization and enable the university to study trends and take preventive action.

Clery Crime Report for Prescott Campus
The University Safety Department is required each year to prepare a crime report that list statistical information relating to crime on campus. The US Department of Education and the Clery Disclosure Act requires this information to be published by October 1 of each year for review by the public and campus community. These statistics are for the preceding calendar year. The University will be happy to provide you with a printed copy of this crime information. Currently copies of the report are located and the Admissions Office, Dean of Students Office, the Safety Department, and posted on the Safety Department website.
Timely Warning policy:
The Clery Disclosure Act requires a timely warning policy. The purpose is to notify the campus community in a timely manner when a possible threat may exist on University property. The Safety Department will determine if the issue at hand requires a timely warning and then be responsible for the notification. Notification can be accomplished by an all campus e-mail, through the school newspaper or through posted notices campus-wide.
