Update to West Tower Criminal Trespass

The Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management has completed follow up interviews to yesterdays reported trespass in the West Tower, and determined it appears to be unfounded.  A student inadvertently entered a wrong room and upon discovering the error immediately exited.

We would like to commend those who reported this incident, as the outcome could have been quite different should the incident have developed in another way.  Public Safety strongly encourages the campus community to report suspicious behavior or circumstances such as these immediately at 607-274-3333, or to leave an anonymous voice mail message at 607-274-1060.

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).
