In the event of an important incident, please do not call the police department to ask for updates. Dispatch and other staff will be involved with managing the active incident. Updates will be provided through CMU websites, social media, and/or other press-release methods.
In an emergency or important incident, information is published in two ways:
EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION: Upon confirmation of a dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the university community, students, faculty and staff will typically receive a notification through the Central Alert system. Your information can still be managed at myaccount.cmich.edu. Updates to an incident may also appear on CMUPD social media (Facebook and Twitter).
TIMELY WARNING NOTICE: In the event of an important incident, students, faculty and staff will typically receive an email from the university. We may also post the notice on CMUPD social media (Facebook and Twitter). Timely warning notices are given in an effort to keep community members from becoming victims of similar crimes, and are determined based on the facts surrounding a crime or incident.
Annual Security/Fire Safety Report & Daily Crime Log:
Through the Clery Act, the CMU Police Department is required to report specified crimes (in a specific format) to the Department of Education each year. Given the requirements, not all investigated crime classifications are included in this report. The focus is on certain crimes which occur on campus property, or areas associated with CMU. Get an overview of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.
Please direct any questions or additional data requests to Lt. Cameron Wassman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also indicate what your deadline is for receiving requested materials.
