Timely Warning - Safety Alerts

A Timely Warning or “Safety Alert” is a way for the University to provide timely notification to members of the University community about reports of serious crimes that have occurred on or within the Clery geography of Villanova University (on campus or non-campus property or public property) where it is determined that the incident may pose a serious or ongoing threat to members of the University community. The determination of alerts for reports of sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking are considered on a case-by-case basis and depend on several factors. These factors include: nature of the incident; continuing danger to the campus community; possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts to investigate; when and where the incident occurred; when the incident was reported; and the amount of information known by the Department of Public Safety.

Safety Alerts do not contain any identifying information about the reporting person.
