The report of a missing person is a serious matter. If you have reason to believe that a person is missing from Nazareth College, immediately notify Campus Safety, Residential Life or your departmental supervisors/chairs who must report the concern to Campus Safety as soon as possible.
Upon notification to Nazareth College Campus Safety that a person/student is missing from campus, the Director of Campus Safety or designee will be notified. In addition if the report is regarding a resident student the Director of Campus Life (or designee) and the Vice President of Student Development will be contacted.
All calls regarding missing person(s) on campus will be dispatched and assigned to an officer for initial investigation. Appropriate follow up/response by the Campus Safety Investigator (and if not available) the Director and/or Associate Director of Campus Safety will be initiated.
Each student living in an on-campus student housing facility has the option to register a confidential contact person to be notified in the case that the student is determined to be missing, and only authorized campus officials and law enforcement officers in furtherance of a missing person investigation may have access to this information. If the resident student has not registered a contact person, the local law enforcement will be notified that the student is missing. The parents of students less than 18 years of age and not emancipated, will be contacted if the student is the subject of a missing person report. Resident students wishing to provide a specific contact person can do so by e-mailing the information to email@example.com.
