March 8, 2022 1427hrs - Safety Bulletin: Trespassing Incidents and Safety Reminders

Dear Members of the Lehigh Community,

We wanted to make the community aware of reports received over the past two days regarding a non-Lehigh community member trespassing in Lehigh residence halls. This individual gained access by following student residents with ID access into the residence halls. After further investigation, Lehigh police determined that the suspect left without further incident and appeared to have gained access, walked around, and then immediately left the residence hall.

The Lehigh University Police Department (LUPD) has identified the adult individual, who is not affiliated with Lehigh, and today, the individual is being charged with criminal trespass. Lehigh police have been in direct contact with the individual and their immediate family to resolve the trespassing incidents. Lehigh police also have followed up with the students who reported these incidents.

We wanted to take this opportunity to additionally remind members of the campus community of the following general safety reminders:

-Please remember to never prop open building doors. While it may seem polite, never hold a door to allow others to enter a building behind you without swiping their ID card to gain access.

-Remain alert and be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you notice someone following you or notice that someone gained unauthorized access to a campus building or residence, contact the LUPD at 610-758-4200.

-For students living in the residence halls, never leave your door unlocked. Even though residence halls are accessible only by card access, if someone gains unauthorized access, keeping your door locked provides additional security.

-Regardless of where you live, secure all doors and windows and keep your residence locked at all times.

-Education is an important facet of campus safety. Read more safety tips on the LUPD website: https://police.lehigh.edu/content/safety-tips

Thank you, and if you have any questions about these tips or additional safety information, our Division of Campus Safety is available to assist you at 610-758-4200.

Safety Bulletin: Off-Campus Burglaries and Crimes of Opportunity

 

Dear Students and Members of the Lehigh Community, 

In the past week, there has been an uptick in off-campus burglaries reported to the Lehigh University Police Department (LUPD). The City of Bethlehem is currently investigating five burglaries that occurred in student housing in the area immediately surrounding our campus. There were no physical assaults or injuries associated with these incidents. LUPD is working with the Bethlehem Police on these investigations and asks anyone with information to contact LUPD at (610) 758-4200 or Bethlehem Police at (610) 865-7187. 

We wanted to provide some important reminders about actions you can take to support your safety. All of the burglaries have involved entry through unlocked doors when it was dark outside, and items were stolen from the first-floor living areas. These are crimes of opportunity. Those responsible are looking for easy targets of unlocked doors and valuable items such as electronics that are in plain view in the main living spaces. 

We remind students to:

  • Please keep all doors and windows locked and secured.

  • Keep porch lights on and keep outside areas well-lit when it is dark outside. 

  • Do not leave electronic devices or other valuables unattended or in plain view. 

  • Be sure to contact your landlord for any issues with the locks or lighting.

  • If any students are having difficulties with their landlords over these issues, they can contact LUPD and we will provide assistance however we can.

  • Students who see anything in their neighborhood that seems suspicious should report it to LUPD or the Bethlehem Police Department.

  • For those living off campus, be sure to register your off-campus residence. This is especially important if you are leaving your off-campus residence for university holidays or scheduled breaks for an extended period of time.

A security survey of off-campus residences is available by contacting Lehigh Police Crime Prevention Officer Lora Martin, who can provide guidance on how to make your residence as safe as possible. She can be reached at 610.758.4200.

All students living on and off campus should not hesitate to call LUPD at 610-758-4200 if you feel uncomfortable, sense any danger or see something that causes you concern. This could be unfamiliar people in your residence hall or academic building or any suspicious activity. 

The LUPD offers a number of safety resources, and the HawkWatch safety app allows you to make quick contact with our dispatchers. To learn more, please visit our website at https://police.lehigh.edu/content/programs-and-resources. There are other resources for safety, health and basic emergency preparedness that Lehigh provides to members of its community. Read more at: https://www.lehigh.edu/emergency.

At approximately 12:13 a.m. on January 13, 2022, the Lehigh University Police Department (LUPD) was alerted to check the surrounding area of Carlton Ave. for a possible burglary. The suspect was described as being a male 5'6" to 5'8" tall and wearing all-black clothing with a beanie.

Officers were unable to locate the actor at this time. Bethlehem police are investigating the incident and anyone with information is encouraged to contact Bethlehem police at (610) 865-7187.

Please remember that the LUPD offers a number of safety resources, and the HawkWatch safety app allows you to make quick contact with our dispatchers.

Also note the resources available for those living off campus. To assist the LUPD, as well as the Bethlehem Police Department, if you are leaving your off-campus residence for university holidays or scheduled breaks for an extended period of time, you may have concerns about the safety of your residence. To serve you better, please use this form to register your off campus residence: https://police.lehigh.edu/content/register-campus-residence.

LUPD advises off-campus renters to check that residences have working locks on all doors and windows and to contact the property manager if there are any problems with locking devices. A security survey of off-campus residences is available by contacting Lehigh Police Crime Prevention Officer Lora Martin, who can provide guidance on how to make your residence as safe as possible. She can be reached at 610.758.4200.

Remember that criminal activity is more prominent during semester breaks. Vacant apartments are targets. Always lock doors and windows. If your property is valuable and portable, take it with you. The use of light timers is recommended. It is also recommended that you make arrangements regarding mail and newspaper deliveries so they do not accumulate outside your residence.

Regardless of where you live, secure all doors and windows and keep your residence locked at all times. Read more safety tips on the LUPD website: https://police.lehigh.edu/content/safety-tips

December 3, 2021 1621hrs - Safety Update

Dear Members of the Lehigh Community,As you know, we sent a timely warning to campus on Nov. 21 regarding an assault at the Theta Chi fraternity (found here: https://lehigh.apparmor.com/Notifications/CAP/?id=66599).

This incident is still under active investigation by the Lehigh University Police Department (LUPD). The investigation has revealed that the people responsible are not affiliated with Lehigh and we do not believe there is an ongoing threat at this time. We will provide more information to the campus community when the investigation concludes, and we continue to encourage anyone with information about the incident to contact LUPD at (610) 758-4200.

In the meantime, we wanted to make the campus community aware of some safety-related enhancements and precautions. The safety of our students is our highest priority, and we don't tolerate any actions or behaviors that endanger the safety of our community.

Given a number of events taking place this weekend, as a general precaution, students may have, or will notice, an increase in the presence of security guards and walking police patrols on campus, especially during the evening hours and before and after scheduled events, and in high-traffic locations. As you may be aware, lighting has been enhanced in campus areas such as Sayre Park Village in response to resident feedback, and LUPD is continuing discussions about enhancements in other areas on campus.

As a general safety reminder, do not walk alone after dark and walk in well-lit areas. Remain alert and be aware of your surroundings at all times. Students can request a walking safety escort as an alternative to walking alone after dark by calling the Lehigh University Police Department at 610-758-4200. The service operates between dusk and dawn throughout the school year. It provides either a walking or driving escort, depending on the time of night and the weather.

Through the HawkWatch app, students can also use the "virtual walk home" or "friend walk" options. Download at https://www1.lehigh.edu/emergency/prepared/hawkwatchapp

Lehigh police also remind the community of the following resources available:

Students can report any concerns through the Report a Tip function on the Hawkwatch app.

In the case of an emergency or the need for immediate assistance, call LUPD if on campus at 610-758-4200, or 9-1-1 if off campus. We encourage anyone who is the victim of a crime or witnesses a suspicious incident to contact the Lehigh University police immediately so that we can respond quickly, access any available surveillance video, and interview any witnesses as soon as possible.

Through Hawkwatch, the mobile blue light feature allows you to contact LUPD dispatch and provide your location to the Lehigh police at the click of a button. Watch a step-by-step tutorial in this video: http://go.lehigh.edu/lupdbluelight.

To learn more about additional resources, please go to: https://police.lehigh.edu/content/programs-and-resources. There are other resources for safety, health and basic emergency preparedness at https://www.lehigh.edu/emergency.

Again, while we are not notifying the campus community of any active threat at this time, safety is our priority, and we wanted to provide a general update as well as important proactive safety reminders to keep in mind. We'll continue to keep the campus community updated and informed.

Timely Warning: Incident Involving Ethnic Intimidation and Harassment

This morning shortly after 9:20 a.m., a male approached a student outside of the Clayton University Center and made threatening statements, indicating he wanted to stab the student and Asian students on campus. The male did not appear to be armed and did not display a weapon at any time. Around the same time, the male also approached an Asian Lehigh staff member and yelled that she did not belong here. 

Both incidents were reported to the Lehigh University Police Department (LUPD). Officers immediately responded to the area and, once the male was observed leaving campus, began searching for the male with the assistance of Bethlehem Police. The male was apprehended and confirmed to not be affiliated with the university. He was taken into custody without incident or injury. There is no active or ongoing threat to the Lehigh community.

This incident is deeply disturbing for the victims involved, and also particularly for our Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander students, faculty and staff who may experience deep anxiety and uncertainty following a targeted incident such as this. On behalf of the LUPD, I want to express my support for those who are impacted and condemn this violence and any incident involving ethnic intimidation and harassment.  

Anyone in the Lehigh community who is impacted or who may be experiencing anxiety or stress regarding this incident, recent events in the news or other issues is encouraged to take advantage of the university's counseling services. The University Counseling and Psychological Services (UCPS) office, located in Johnson Hall, can be reached at 610-758-3880. Resources for faculty and staff can be accessed through the Employee Assistance Program.

The Northampton County District Attorney’s office filed charges related to this incident and the male was charged with Ethnic Intimidation, Terroristic Threats, Harassment, and Disorderly Conduct. He was committed to Northampton County Prison under a bail of $50,000. The judge ordered him to complete a mental health evaluation, and he is not permitted to make contact with the victims in this incident. Lehigh University has issued a trespass notice and he is not permitted on campus property.  

As a reminder about the university’s emergency notification systems, if there is an imminent, severe threat to campus safety, the LUPD would share information through the university’s emergency notification systems, including HawkWatch push notifications, text messages, and other immediate notification tools to share as much information as quickly as possible. Once a situation is resolved and the threat is removed, our focus shifts to issuing to campus a timely notification with accurate, verified information. The timely reports of today’s incidents helped support an immediate response by our police, limiting any potential threat to others.

Faculty, staff, and students who experience or witness bias, harassment or discrimination are encouraged to promptly report such conduct and access resources and support by reaching out to the Equal Opportunity Compliance Coordinator (EOCC), reporting incidents through Lehigh’s web-based reporting form or by contacting the Lehigh University Police Department at (610) 758-4200 or through the HawkWatch app.
