Crime victims are never at fault for being victimized.  Perpetrators alone are responsible for crimes and their effects.  LHU Public Safety offer the following suggestions that may help reduce the possibility of experiencing a crime.

  • It is a crime to intentionally touch someone against his or her will, regardless of the situation.
  • Make sure you have consent. Consent is a clear and freely given yes, not the absence of a no.  You must continually get consent for sex.  If someone seems not okay with what’s happening, it is your responsibility to check in.
  • When you have sex be sure you understand your partner’s limits, and communicate your own limits clearly. Don’t engage in sexual activities without affirmative consent from your partner.
  • Consuming alcoholic beverages or other drugs could impair the ability to make good sound decisions. If you choose to consume alcoholic beverages do it responsibly.
  • People who are incapacitated by alcohol or drugs cannot give consent. Signs of incapacitation may include – but are not limited to – throwing up, slurring words, stumbling, or not being able to remember conversations.
  • Make sure you have enthusiastic, affirmative and ongoing consent from your partner.
  • Some sex offenders target people by using alcohol as a weapon. Get your own drinks; don’t let someone continually fill your cup or leave your drink unattended.
  • For emergencies, or if you see a crime being committed, call 9-1-1. To report suspicious, illegal or unusual activity on campus, call LHUPD at 570.484.2278.

The warning will be issued by the Public Relations Department through the college e-mail system to students, faculty, staff, notices will be placed on bulletin boards in resident halls, academic and administration buildings and published in the campus student newspaper, The Eagle Eye.

Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the Department of Public Safety may also post a notice on the campus website on the Department of Public Safety webpage at LHU Public Safety; providing the university community with more immediate notification. In such instances, a copy of the notice is posted in each residence hall. The LHU website is immediately accessible via computer by all faculty, staff and students. Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstance to the University police, by phone (484-2278) or in person at thee dispatch center within Public Safety located in the Glennon Infirmary Building.

Lock Haven University will be notifying students and employees of emergency situations via the mass paging functions of our telecommunication system. Telephones and paging systems in all offices, classrooms and other academic spaces will simultaneously provide an audible notification of the emergency situation as well as any incident-specific instructions provided by the Public Safety staff. Such notifications can be tailored and directed to specific parts of the campus if the situation requires that level of granularity.
