Public Safety Education

Crime Awareness

Crimes and incidents posing threats to the Campus Community are communicated by way of crime alert bulletins posted throughout the campus, the campus newspaper, the campus-owned radio station, newsletters, and through appropriate meetings. HSUPD is in compliance with The Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 which requires the disclosure of crime information for the campus.
