Timely Warnings

'Timely Warnings' are designed to give students, faculty, and staff timely notification of a crime that constitutes a danger to the University of Toledo community.  Such information is a valuable tool in heightening safety awareness and obtaining information which may lead to an arrest and conviction of the perpetrator. 

The University of Toledo issues 'Timely Warnings' when a crime is reported to the University of Toledo Police Department and it is determined that such offense represents a threat to the safety of The University of Toledo community. 

Every attempt is made to distribute the alert within 48 hours of the time the incident is reported; however, the release of the crime alert is subject to the availability of facts concerning the incident.  The decision to issue a crime alert shall be decided on a case by case basis in light of all the facts surrounding a crime, including factors such as the nature of the crime, the continuing danger to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts. 

'Timely Warnings' are distributed by campus-wide email and an archive of the current school year's warning maybe found here. For an archive of older 'Timely Warnings,' click on the link for the appropriate calendar year.
