The Augsburg College Department of Public Safety seeks to issue timely alerts and advisories as required by federal law in order to provide the Augsburg community with information to increase the safety of people and property. These timely notices provide information available to Public Safety at the time the alert or advisory is issued which may include limited suspect or other information. If you have information related to crimes on Augsburg’s campus, please contact the Department of Public Safety at 612-330-1717.
Crime Alerts and Advisories are distributed for incidents that occurred on, or in areas immediately adjacent to, college property. Alerts may be distributed to all students, staff, and faculty, or they may be distributed to a localized area of the College if it is determined that the threat is specific to that particular area. Alerts may be posted in 8×11″ frames near campus building entrances, sent by e-mail, posted in A-Mail, and posted in the News & Announcements page of our website.
Crime alerts are printed on red paper and describe situations or incidents of the greatest magnitude that may directly impact the Augsburg community. Alerts can include incidents such as robberies, multiple thefts on campus, or assaults as well as arson, burglary, homicide, motor vehicle theft, and sex offenses.
Crime advisories are printed on yellow paper, and describe crimes on or off-campus that are important to the college community. While not as critical as the incidents described in the red security alerts, advisories pose significant concerns for the safety and well being of students, faculty, and staff, and are provided to increase campus awareness and encourage extra precaution to be taken in regards to safety and security issues.
Augsburg College has an emergency notification system with phone, text, and e-mail alerts available to students, staff, and faculty. We strongly encourage Augsburg community members to sign-up for Emergency Notifications. To learn more, please visit the Emergency Notifications page of our site.
