The Campus Security Act
The Campus Security Act requires colleges and universities to:
● Publish an annual report every year by October 1 that contains three years of campus crime statistics and certain campus security policy statements;
● Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus, and certain non-campus facilities and remote classrooms. The statistics must be gathered from campus safety, local law enforcement, and other University officials who have ―significant responsibility for student and campus activities‖;
● Provide ―timely warning‖ notices of those crimes that have occurred and pose an ongoing ―threat to students and employees‖;
● Disclose in a public crime log ―any crime that occurred on campus...or within the patrol jurisdiction of the campus safety department and is reported to the campus safety department.‖
Spalding University Campus Safety is responsible for preparing and distributing this report. We work with many other departments and agencies, such as the Dean of Students, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Louisville Metro Police Department to compile the information.
We encourage members of the Spalding University community to use this report as a guide for safe practices on and off campus. Each member of the University community receives an e-mail that describes the report and provides its Web address. For more information, contact Campus Safety at 873-4444, campus ext. 4444 or e-mail tvancader@Spalding.edu.
Who We Are: Located in the center of campus on Breckenridge Street and Library Lane, Campus Safety is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The telephone number for emergency calls is 4444 from any campus phone or 502-873-4444 from any other phone.
The department consists of professional campus safety officers provided by a contract with Securitas International, dedicated to providing best-in-class service to the community.
Officers patrol the campus on foot and by bicycle. Several officers and a supervisor are on duty 24 hours a day. The Communications Center is staffed with dispatchers who answer calls for service, dispatch officers and other emergency services to incidents, monitor intrusion detection and fire alarms and monitor video surveillance equipment. The department also employs student workers and graduate assistants who carry out a variety of roles, including parking lot compliance.
