Public Safety Alert Regarding Burglaries; Issued March 30, 2012


The Office of Public Safety is investigating three separate reports of burglaries from residence halls (Terrace 6, East Tower, and Holmes Hall).  The three incidents were reported over the course of the past two days (3/28/12 and 3/29/12).  In each incident it is reported that unknown person(s) entered the room and stole personal property such as small amounts of cash, textbooks, and in one case a musical instrument.   There were no signs of forced entry at any of the locations and it is not known if the three incidents are connected. 


Anyone having information pertaining to these incidents is encouraged to contact the Office of Public Safety at (607) 274-3333 or consider reporting anonymously at (607) 274-1060.   


Student residents are reminded to secure valuables out of plain view and close and lock doors at all times, even when occupied, which can significantly minimize the opportunity for this type of crime to occur. 



In accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act [20 USC 1092 (f)],  otherwise known as the “Clery Act,” the College is required to provide the campus community timely warning of certain crimes and other conditions that pose a serious or ongoing threat to life and safety.  The College meets this notification requirement through the issuance of a “Public Safety Alert” intended to aid in the prevention of similar crimes and provide cautionary measures for the campus community.  Clery crimes are as follows:  aggravated assault, arson, burglary, murder and non-negligent homicide, robbery, sexual offenses (forcible and non-forcible), motor vehicle theft, and hate crimes (in accordance with Clery reporting categories for prejudice).
