IV. E. Federal Timely Warning Reporting Obligations

The Clery Act requires institutions to issue timely warnings to the campus community about crimes that have already occurred but may continue to pose a serious or ongoing threat to students and employees.  Timely warnings are only required for Clery-reportable crimes that occur on Clery-defined geography, although Central reserves the right to issue appropriate warnings regarding other criminal activity that may pose a serious threat as well.  The College will make every effort to ensure that a survivor's name and other identifying information is not disclosed, while still providing enough information for community members to make safety decisions in light of the danger.  Each time an alleged violation of this Policy is brought to the attention of the College, the Title IX Coordinator will make a determination as to whether a timely warning will be issued.  When determining if a timely warning will be issued various factors will be considered on a case by case basis, including the nature of the crime, the continuing danger to the community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.  If a timely warning is issued, it will be posted on the website and sent via email and cell phone text message to all students and those employees who have chosen to use this service.
