Timely Warning Update
Stafford, Dolores
Campus Law Enforcement Journal, v41 n1 p30-32 Jan-Feb 2011
A complaint received by the Department of Education alleged that Virginia Tech violated the "timely warning" requirements of the Clery Act on April 16, 2007, by not issuing specific campus-wide alerts once senior officials knew of the immediate threat to health and safety. The complaint also alleged that the University's timely warning policy, as published in its annual security reports and distributed to the students and employees, did not accurately explain Virginia Tech's actual procedures and protocols for issuing timely warnings. In this article, the author points out a few important teaching points and "to-do list" items that resonated with her as she read the Final Program Review Determination report issued by the Department of Education (ED) on December 9, 2010.
