Timely Warning Notifications

Timely warnings will be made to the University community when a Clery Crime or criminal activity presents an ongoing threat.  When a Clery Crime is committed and the incident is deemed to present an ongoing threat to the University Community, a timely warning will be issued.  Dependent upon the situation and the immediacy of the notification, multiple formats can be used. 

Timely Warning/Emergency Notification Statement

Emergency Notifications will be made through "KatSafe" when there is an immediate or impending threat (that is confirmed) to the health and safety of the University Community.  Examples include outbreaks of serious illness, approaching extreme weather, earth quake, gas leak, terrorist incident, an armed intruder, bomb threat, civil unrest and/or explosion.  Timely notifications will be listed here and on the KatSafe webpage accessible on the SHSU home web page using the KatSafe icon.

August 26, 2018

On August 24, 2019, the University Police Department took two “Theft” reports from multiple complainants.  In each instance, items to include multiple cell phones, cash, and other items were stolen from the Lowman Student Center in the area of the Orange Ballroom.  These items were left unattended.  Anyone with information please contact 936-294-1800 (University Police Department. 

In order to help prevent these types of crimes, our department actively promotes “Hide, Lock, Take” your property.   Your personal property, even while on campus (in your office or residence) should be Hidden and Locked when not under your care. If you are unable to Hide or Lock your personal property, please take it with you.  This helps prevent personal property theft on campus.
