The Clery Act also requires institutions to provide a timely warning to the campus community about crimes that are considered to present a continuing threat to students and employees.
The OTC Safety and Security department, in consultation with campus partners such as the Division of Student Affairs and Communications and Marketing department, will issue timely warnings to give students, faculty and staff timely notification of crimes that the department deems serious or a continuing threat to the campus community to aid in the prevention of similar crimes. Timely warnings are considered a preventative and educational measure as they make the campus community aware of potential dangers to themselves or their property. Timely warnings may also request information that could lead to arrest and conviction of an offender.
Timely warning advisories will be sent by OTC staff in the form of electronic mail directly to all students, faculty and staff on the affected OTC campus, or all campuses, using their institution-provided email accounts, emergency text notification system, press releases, posted material, or making reports available to the campus community and media through the OTC website, newspapers and radio and television news stations.
