 Reporting Criminal Incidents and Other Emergencies 



It is critically important that all crimes and emergencies occurring on campus or in/on university owned or leased off-campus buildings and property be immediately reported to ensure that appropriate action is taken. For each incident reported, a report is created. SRU requires all Campus Security Authorities to be identified and trained in reporting Clery crimes even when the victim of such crime elects or is unable to make such a report. When making timely reports, the names of the victims are withheld and remain confidential.  


Crimes and Emergencies can be reported in person any time at University Police Headquarters, 145 Kiester Road, by calling ext. 3333, or by using one of the emergency phones on campus. Calls coming into SRUPD for off campus will be redirected to the local authorities.   


Slippery Rock University has developed comprehensive plans of action to respond to criminal incidents, fires, severe weather, natural disasters, and other potential hazards that are included in the University’s “Emergency Operations Plan.” Our procedures have been designed to comply with applicable regulations posed by the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The Emergency Operation plan is the foundation for the University’s Emergency Management Program. The program consists of plans, evacuation procedures, training, drills and exercises that are designed to interface with community resources, to reduce or mitigate the disruptions to the University community, in the event of an emergency. Preparation to respond to an emergency includes alerting the campus community, education, and training that leads to immediate response. 


The entire Emergency Operations Plan may be viewed at:


In an effort to disseminate emergency information, warnings are posted and distributed through a variety of mediums to include flyers, mass e-mail notifications, Metis System, and the E2-Campus notification system. Slippery Rock University's "emergency text messaging" system will alert students, faculty /staff, and university community during, and only during, a campus emergency or weather alert. This system is a mass notification system that can alert you with a text message on your mobile phone, e-mail, wireless PDA, as well as RSS feeds, personalized web pages from Google, My Yahoo and AOL, and the SRU Homepage. This notification system is administered by the Chief of Police or designated Officer In Charge in conjunction with the Executive Director of Public Relations and their staff.
