How to Report Criminal Actions or Emergencies


Each student, seminarian, faculty or staff member must immediately notify either the Rector/President, Vice Rector, Director of Facilities, or any other senior member of the faculty or staff should he or she perceive a situation which, in his or her best and prudent judgment, has the potential to negatively affect the safety or security of any person at the seminary. In case of uncertainty, question or doubt, inform immediately. No penalty, opprobrium or criticism will ever be leveled upon any person who, exercising prudent concern or judgment, brings a questionable circumstance to the attention of the administration.

If a student, seminarian, faculty or staff member becomes aware of a crime in progress or an emergency on or near campus, they must immediately call 911 and notify the Rector/President, Vice Rector, Director of Facilities, or any other senior member of the faculty or staff as soon as possible.

If non-emergency assistance is needed outside the buildings, on the grounds of the seminary, students, seminarians, faculty, and staff should call the security guard. Vinson Security furnishes a guard to patrol the grounds between 7:00 PM and 7:00 AM seven days a week. If you need non-emergency assistance between these times, please call 504-525-0591.
