Timely Warning | Crime Alerts
Northern Arizona University is required by the Clery Act to alert the campus community to certain crimes in a manner that is timely and will aid in the prevention of similar crimes. Timely Warnings are triggered by Clery Act crimes that have already occurred on NAU’s Clery Act geography but represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. Timely Warnings may also be issued for a non-Clery crime. The decision to issue a Timely Warning is made on a case-by-case basis in conjunction with all the facts surrounding the crime, including such factors as, the nature of the crime, the continuing danger to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.
