Timely Security Notices

Security Notices

Security Notices are issued by VUPD in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (The Clery Act).

The Clery Act requires that a timely warning (Security Notice) be issued when one of the below incidents occurs on or near Vanderbilt facilities or property and there is reason to believe that there is a continued threat to the safety and security of students and/or employees:

  • Murder
  • Sex Offense
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Burglary
  • Motor Vehicle Theft
  • Manslaughter
  • Arson
  • Stalking, domestic violence, or dating violence
  • When repeated offenses warrant public notice such as multiple unsolved thefts with the same possible suspect(s) or established patterns

Security Notices are typically distributed via Vanderbilt email. A Security Notice will be issued as soon as the pertinent information is available about the incident. Security Notices will not contain information that may hinder an ongoing police investigation and will not identify the victim by name or address. A general location designation, such as “residence hall” or “fraternity,” may be given instead of a specific location to ensure the privacy of the victim.

 Below are Security Notices recently issued to the Vanderbilt Community.
