Purdue University Northwest Annual Security Report

September 13, 2023

Greetings faculty, staff and students;

The Annual Security Report, commonly referred to as the ASR, is a publication mandated by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Clery Act is a federal law, requiring distribution of an annual security report by October 1st to all current faculty, staff and students, and notice of its availability to prospective students, faculty and staff.

The ASR contains policy statements regarding safety and security as well as specific crime statistics for the university.

Some of what you can expect to find in the Annual Security Report:

  • Contact information for PNW Police, for other local police agencies, for emergency services, for hotlines and for health care
  • What PNW Police are doing to keep the university communities safe and secure
  • The difference between an Emergency notification and a Timely Warning, and how you will be notified about each
  • The Alert Me! Emergency text messaging service – what it is and how to sign up for it
  • Crime Prevention programs and Security Awareness
  • What to do if you’ve been a victim of a crime including a sexual assault
  • Alcohol and drug policies
  • Ways to get help (Suicide Prevention, Counseling Services)
  • Emergency Preparedness plans for both campuses
