Immediate and Timely Warnings

The College of Law will issue immediate or timely warnings to the COL community when crimes or events represent an immediate, serious, or continuing threat to the COL community.

“Immediate warning” means a warning to the COL community about a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the COL community occurring in or near the COL facility.

“Timely warning” means a warning to the COL community regarding the occurrence of a crime or situation that represents a serious or continuing threat to the COL community.

The Dean of the COL or a designee will evaluate whether a situation warrants an immediate or timely warning to the campus community on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration the nature of the event or situation, the continuing danger to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts in the case of a crime.

When the Dean of the COL or a designee determines that an immediate or timely warning should be issued, a warning will be issued using a combination of methods that allow for prompt notification of the COL community, including but not limited to:

  1. Campus email and/or text message
  2. Posting on the COL website
  3. Posting on COL electronic bulletin boards
  4. Alert to the local news media

Emergency Alert

Upon enrollment of new students or employment of new employees, the COL will obtain personal telephone numbers or email addresses for all members of the COL community to be used to notify the individual in the event of an emergency. The collected information will be used to register individuals in the emergency alert system. Students electing not to participate in the emergency alert system must submit a written request to the Office of the Dean of the COL at the start of each academic year.

More detail on emergency and timely warnings can be found in UNT Dallas Policy 12.001.
