Timely Warnings / Crime Alerts

It is the policy of Sinclair Community College and Sinclair Police to alert the campus community to certain crimes and safety/security issues occurring on campus, or in the immediate vicinity of the campus. Generally, this area will include the streets adjacent and/or adjoining campus property. However, notifications about incidents occurring outside of this area when they are likely to have a significant impact on members of the college community may also be issued. Names of victims are considered confidential and will not be used in any alert.

Attention: Students/Faculty/Staff

On February 6, 2018, at approximately 12:20 p.m., a female student was inside a stall of the women’s restroom located in the basement level of Building 1. Prior to exiting the stall, an unknown black male reached underneath and grabbed the student’s arm. The student was able to break free at which time the unknown black male exited the restroom.

The suspect was described as a black male wearing black shoes of an unknown type.

If anyone has any additional information regarding this incident or any similar incidents, please contact Sinclair Police at extension 2700 (from any campus phone), or off-campus (937) 512-2700, or by stopping by the Sinclair Police Office, room 7112 (first floor of Building 7) or use the Tartan Safety Tip & Information Line located on the Sinclair Police website:

http://www.sinclair.edu/police

All tips received are kept confidential.

Individuals are reminded to be aware of their surroundings and any circumstances which appear to be out of the ordinary. If a crime does occur, it should be immediately reported to Sinclair Police who will investigate the incident and initiate the required legal actions. Everyone is encouraged to promptly and accurately report any crime or incident that negatively affects the college by contacting Sinclair Police.

A network of emergency blue light intercoms are located outside throughout campus and are identified by a blue light atop a pole that houses the intercom. These intercoms have been placed throughout the campus and parking lots. In addition to the emergency intercoms, there are a number of closed-circuit television surveillance cameras, which assist in monitoring parking lots and other selected areas on campus.

Timely Alert Warnings

Sinclair Police maintains a continuous liaison with Dayton Police especially when a serious crime occurs on adjacent streets or sidewalks to the campus.

It is the policy of Sinclair Community College and Sinclair Police to alert the campus community to certain crimes and safety/security issues occurring on campus, or in the immediate vicinity of the campus. Generally, this area will include the streets adjacent and/or adjoining campus property. However, notifications about incidents occurring outside of this area when they are likely to have a significant impact on members of the college community may also be issued. Names of victims are considered confidential and will not be used in any alert.

Alerts are required for all incidents that constitute Jeanne Clery Act Crimes and are considered to represent a serious or continuing threat to the campus community. These crimes include: Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter, Sex Offenses, Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, Motor Vehicle Theft, Arson and Hate Crimes.

Alerts may also be issued for crimes other than "Clery Act" crimes that pose a serious or continuing threat to the campus community (e.g. kidnapping) and for non-criminal emergencies that pose a significant or continuing threat to the campus community or a segment of the campus community (e.g. weather related emergencies, maintenance issues, environmental health and safety issues, etc.). Faculty or staff who learns of information which may warrant the issuance of a "Timely Alert" warning should notify Sinclair Police as soon as possible.  

Alerts are issued at the discretion of the College President, the Chief of Staff, the Director of Public Safety, any Vice President or the Director of Public Relations. Consultation is expected among the authorizing authorities available at the time of the incident if time permits. Any Sinclair Police Lieutenant may issue alerts without authorization from the individuals listed above in emergency situations for in-progress life-threatening situations, if they are not otherwise detained at the incident.

Sinclair Police will provide timely warning alerts to the campus community whenever an incident is considered by the college to represent a threat to the campus community. Notices will be made via utilizing Nixle and/or the college emergency texting system, flyers on bulletins, e-mail and/or fax notices, electronic campus signage, the department’s web site at http://police.sinclair.edu as well as other means of communication. Such notifications are the decision of the President’s or designee’s office.

It is important for students, faculty and staff to not only stay aware of crimes occurring on campus but also on adjacent streets and sidewalks surrounding the campus.   Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to Sinclair Police at (937-512-2700) or in person at the Sinclair Police office in Building 7, room 7112 at the Dayton Campus.

Emergency Alerts & Response Procedures

If there is an in-progress significant emergency or dangerous incident that poses an immediate threat to the members of the Sinclair community such as an earthquake, active shooter, structure fire, hazardous materials leak, or similar major incident, the college will use some or all of the various communication systems listed below to quickly communicate information to the campus community. Sinclair will, without delay, and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless the notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

  • All campus e-mail and/or all student e-mail accounts
  • Notification on the official college site on NIXLE (see below for sign-up information)
  • Campus emergency paging system (Dayton Campus only)
  • Notification of local media by the Public Relations Office

An emergency message may contain the following information, depending on the specifics of the situation:

  • Nature of incident
  • Specific location of incident, i.e., Building, Room, Center, etc.
  • Description of person(s) involved
  • Description of property involved
  • Necessary further instructions, i.e., shelter location, evacuation process, etc.

Notifications may be used to notify students and staff of major events of an important, but non-emergency nature, such as a widespread and long lasting power outage, or other events that require class cancellations or evacuations.

Emergency procedures and alerts can be initiated by the Director of Public Safety/Chief of Police, the Administrative Captain, the Operations Captain, the Administrative Lieutenant or any Operations Lieutenant. Once the emergency is over, an “all clear” message will be made using some or all of the various communication systems listed above.

Sinclair Police will immediately notify the Office of the President. The Office of the President will notify the Emergency Management Team and the Public Relations Office. The Office of the President and Sinclair Police may receive information from other sources, as well. If the Office of the President and Sinclair Police confirm that there is an emergency or dangerous condition that poses an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all members of the campus community, the two offices and the Public Relations Office will collaborate to determine the content of the message and will use some or all of the systems described above to communicate the threat to the campus community or to the appropriate segment of the community. If the threat is limited to a particular building or segment of the campus, the three offices will, without delay and taking into account the safety of the campus, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless issuing a notification will, in the judgment of the first responders compromise the efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

Emergency Response procedures are available to the campus community on the Sinclair Police web site (www.police.sinclair.edu) or by referring to the Emergency Placards placed on the rear of every classroom, lab, office, and storage door on campus. In addition, procedures are also covered during safety orientations provided by Sinclair Police. For additional information on hosting a safety orientation at your meeting or group activity, please contact Sinclair Police at (937) 512-2700.
