Crime & Violent Behavior

In Progress Incidents:

  1. Protect Yourself First - Create and Manage Distance and Shielding from Threats. Generally, the farther you move away from a threat, and the more solid and stable objects that you position between you and a threat, the safer you are from that threat.

  2. Call 911 from a Campus or Public Telephone or use an Emergency Call Box. Dial 911 from your cell phone (Off Campus) and Dial 859-622-1919 or 859-622-1111 from your cell phone (On Campus). Program these numbers into the speed dial function of your cell phone.

Give your name, location, and phone number. The Dispatcher should be told that THE INCIDENT IS IN-PROGRESS.Describe the nature of the incident and its location. Describe any injuries, weapons, hazards, devices, and property involved. Describe the people involved, where they are, and where they went.

Stay on the line with the Dispatcher until help arrives. Keep the Dispatcher updated on any changes so responding units can be updated. Even if you cannot communicate, keep the line open. The Dispatcher may be able to learn more about what is happening.
