Whitman campus crime resources

1. Campus Crime Log

Campus Security Officers are required to document their activities during each shift. These activities are then translated into a security log, which details any alleged criminal incidents that occur daily. The crime log includes the nature of the crime, the date and time it occurred, the location of the crime and its disposition. The Daily Crime Log can be accessed at http://dailysecuritylog.wordpress.com.

2. Walla Walla Police Department

Incidents that take place off campus are under the jurisdiction of the Walla Walla Police Department, while on-campus incidents are under the jurisdiction of Whitman Campus Security. Students should be mindful of their location when preparing to report crime incidents and should first report to the appropriate authority in relation to their location.

3. Yellow Jacket Escort Services

Whitman Campus Security provides an escort service for both students and employees. The service offers access to and from campus facilities and to any location up to two blocks off campus from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., seven days a week during the academic year. To request a Yellow Jacket escort, call security at 5777.

4. Security phones

Security phones, or blue lights, are located in several areas of the campus and should be used in the case of a criminal, medical or fire emergency. If you have an emergency, push the red button and you will be put in contact with a police dispatcher. Simultaneously, another officer will also be immediately sent to your location. See the campus map for blue light locations.

5. Bicycle registration

The city of Walla Walla requires that all bicycles be registered with the Walla Walla Police Department. Registration costs $5 and has proven to be an effective way to retrieve stolen bicycles. Bicycles can be registered at any Walla Walla Police Station, the closest to campus being located in City Hall on the corned of 3rd and Rose Street.
