Timely Warning Notices

Truckee Meadows Community College Police Department (TMCCPD) is responsible for issuing timely warnings in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act, 20 U.S.C. 1092(f).

Timely warnings will be issued in response to reported crimes committed either on campus or, in some cases, off campus that, in the judgment of the College, constitute an ongoing or continuing threat to students and employees.

Anyone with information believed to warrant a timely warning should promptly report the circumstances to:

Truckee Meadows Community College Police Department
7000 Dandini Blvd., Red Mountain Building, room 243
Reno, Nevada 89512

TMCCPD will consult, as appropriate and necessary, with other college officials regarding whether a timely warning should be issued. The decision to issue a timely warning shall be made on a case-by-case basis after consideration of the available facts, including factors such as the nature of the crime, the continuing danger or risk to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.

Timely warnings are considered for the following classifications of reported crimes:

  • Criminal homicide
  • Sex offenses
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Burglary
  • Motor vehicle theft
  • Arson

Timely warnings may also be issued for other reported crimes as deemed appropriate under the circumstances. The decision will be made in compliance with the Clery Act and in an effort to prevent similar crimes from occurring. When a determination is made that a timely warning should be issued, TMCCPD will take appropriate steps to ensure timely notification of the campus community. Options for notification include, but are not necessarily limited to, the College’s mass notification system (phone, text and email), physical postings on doors and bulletin boards, or the TMCCPD website.

Warnings will include some or all of the following information: the date, time and location of the reported crime; a summary of the incident; a description of the suspect and/or vehicle, if available; and any other special instructions or incident specific safety tips.
