Notifications and Warning Notices

In the event of an important incident, please do not call the police department to ask for updates.  Dispatch and other staff will be involved with managing the active incident.  Updates will be provided through CMU websites, social media, and/or other press-release methods.  
In an emergency or important incident, information is published in two ways:

EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION:  Following the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on the campus, an emergency notification will be sent to those affected, without delay.   This notification will typically come through the Central Alert​ system.  Your information can still be managed at  Updates to an incident may also appear on CMUPD social media (Facebook and Twitter).
TIMELY WARNING NOTICE:  In the event of an important incident, students, faculty and staff will typically ​receive an email from the university.  We may also post the notice on CMUPD social media (Facebook and Twitter).  Timely warning notices are given in an effort to keep community members from becoming victims of similar crimes, and are determined based on the facts surrounding a crime or incident.
