Public Safety Alert Update

This information is concerning the Public Safety Alert sent on May 11, 2009

The Ithaca College Office of Public Safety has completed the investigation into the May 10, 2009 stalking incident reported to have occurred in the Whalen Center and the May 8, 2009 forcible touching incident reported to have occurred in the Center for Natural Sciences. The investigation has determined that both reported incidents are unfounded.

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.
