Timely Warnings and Safety Notifications
At times it may be necessary for a ‘timely warning’ to be issued to the Randolph community. The Lynchburg Police Department has historically shared information with Randolph College regarding any serious or dangerous incident that occurs within one mile of the campus. Should a crime or emergency event occur and notification is essential to warn the campus of a potentially dangerous situation, the Safety and Security Department should be informed. The Director of Safety and Security, Lead Security Supervisor or Security Shift Supervisor, Assistant Vice President of Marketing and College Relations or Strategic Communications Manager and the Dean of Students will, without delay, prepare a release to be disseminated to students, staff and faculty by multiple means: electronic mail, text message, campus voicemail, or room-to-room notification. The Campus Emergency Notification System will be activated. This may also trigger the College’s Critical Incident Management Team to convene, requiring collaboration of its members either in-person or by telephone conference in response to the situation.
