College Circle Burglaries


The Office of Public Safety within the past two weeks has received and is continuing to investigate, two separate burglary reports which occurred in the Circle Apartments. According to the complainants, unknown person/s entered their apartments and removed various gaming consoles and games (Wii, X-Box 360 and Play Station). There was no sign of forced entry into the apartments. It is unknown if the two incidents are related.


Anyone having information pertaining to these incidents are encouraged to contact the Office of Public Safety at 607-274-3333, or to leave an anonymous voice mail message at 607-274-1060.


Members of the campus community are reminded to always lock their rooms or apartments and immediately report suspicious activity to the Office of Public Safety.


To aid in the prevention of crime and to keep the campus community informed about safety and security issues on an ongoing basis, an institution must alert the campus community of certain crimes in a manner that is timely and will aid in the prevention of similar crimes.


As required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act [20 USC 1092 (f)], Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, and subsequent amendments, the crimes reported that mandate a “timely warning notice” are in the categories of Aggravated Assault, Arson, Burglary, Murder and Non-negligent Homicide, Robbery, Sexual Offenses (forcible and non-forcible), and Motor Vehicle Theft.


The Office of Public Safety monitors the crime reports it receives from the campus community and local police agencies and issues public safety alerts to the campus community on any incidents that are considered to be a serious or continuing threat to students and employees.
