Crime Prevention

The primary responsibility for the programs and services of the Crime Prevention Unit rests with Assistant Director Caroline Krause. The goal of the unit is to increase community awareness about the risk of campus crime through crime prevention services, tips and alerts, and to generate a sense of personal responsibility in each individual to remove or reduce criminal opportunities.

Crime Prevention Services
The Office of Campus Security makes every effort to see that criminal activity does not occur on campus; however, not all crime can be prevented. When a crime does occur, officers file a report immediately and begin working on ways to prevent similar incidents from occurring.

Each term, the Assistant Director visits every residence hall to discuss security procedures and practices, personal and community safety, any existing security problems, and ways to satisfactorily resolve those problems. It is important that all students know they must always be responsible for their personal safety and aware of their surroundings.

Preventive measures can be taken to keep students from endangering themselves and others. The Office of Campus Security takes all of these measures seriously.

The following are just a few of the services offered:

  • Provision of crime prevention publications, literature and materials to the Elmhurst College community
  • Crime prevention presentations to Elmhurst College organizations, departments and groups on a variety of topics
  • Timely information of current criminal activity to the community through Crime Alerts
  • Notification to organizations, departments and individuals of security violations that pose a crime risk
