The most effective way to solve a crime is of course to prevent one. At the University of La Verne, The Campus Safety Department and all of its partners on campus, along with the La Verne Police Department–and of course you–every effort is made to prevent crime on or near the campus. To continue to help in this effort, we encourage you to:
At all times, if you see something, say something. Call Campus Safety right away if you see someone or something suspicious. Call us at 909-448-4950, or if it's an emergency, call 9-1-1.
The University encourages students to report all criminal activity and all suspicious incidents to the Campus Safety Department at 909-448-4950 or 909-208-4903 as soon as possible, regardless of how insignificant the incident may appear. Reports of in-progress crimes may be made directly to the La Verne Police Department by dialing 911. Reports of fire or medical emergencies may be made directly to the La Verne Fire Department by dialing 911.
All calls to 911 from a campus extension must dial a "9" first. If callers report the incident directly to the Police or Fire Departments, it is imperative that a call be made to the Campus Safety Department so that we can direct the emergency crews to the proper location and so the incident can be documented.
The Federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, enacted on October 28, 2000 became effective October 28, 2002. The law requires registered sex offenders who are employed by or students of a university to register with the local agency that has law enforcement authority over the university, in addition to registering with the law enforcement agency where they reside. In the case of the University of La Verne, that agency is the La Verne Police Department. The La Verne PD also maintains a database where persons may access information on the registration status of individuals.
It is the policy of the Dean of Student Affairs, The Campus Safety Department, and the Office of Housing and Residence Life to provide prompt, sensitive and confidential service to all members of the campus community who may require their assistance. Due to the nature of their duties, these staff members must treat all crimes reported to them as official matters and investigate them accordingly. Anyone desiring to discuss such matters in a less official, non-investigative setting with ULV staff who have counseling duties may contact Campus Ministry at ext. 4320/4322, the Counseling Center at ext. 4831/4650, or the Director of Health Services at ext.4254.
Campus safety is the entire community's responsibility, a big part of what we call "Leos Caring 4 Leos". By doing these suggested steps, you help us all. Here's our "Top 9" Security Planning recommendations:
Share schedule and evening plans with friends/family. Tell them where you are going, who you will be with and when you are expected to return.
