Alaska Pacific University has incorporated the national standard 30 minute response when notifying the campus community of possible emergency/crisis incidents on campus. When circumstances warrant, the Dean of Students Office, Campus Safety and/or the Department of Campus Life issue special crime alerts. Depending on the circumstance, alerts are distributed campus-wide or to selected populations (i.e., residential students). Alerts may be distributed in several different ways: posting on campus bulletin boards, building entries, or other public places; fax, voice mail, or e-mail transmissions to University staff and students; announcements in classes; or official press releases
The group also meets to discuss campus safety awareness, concerns, and recommendations for improvement.
