Crime Alerts

“Crime Alerts” are posted as a means to make the Ole Miss community aware of any situation that poses a potential threat to the safety and well-being of our faculty, staff, students, and visitors. By helping to apprise you of crimes and other troublesome situations, the University Police Department [UPD] hopes to heighten your awareness and encourage you to actively participate in crime prevention. Personal safety practices and knowledge are your best line of defense against crime. This alert is intended to promote safety and security on campus and to comply, in part, with the ”Clery Act” [the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1990].
