On Friday, May 9, at about 10:00 a.m., a female resident of the West Tower reported to the Ithaca College Office of Public Safety that an unknown person had pointed a camera at her while she was in the shower.

The person was described as possibly being white but no further description is available. The camera was described as possibly being a black Nikon.

The incident is being investigated as unlawful surveillance.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Office of Public Safety at 274-3333, or to leave an anonymous voice-mail message at 274-1060.

Members of the campus community are reminded to always report suspicious people or activity immediately 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.
