Timely Warning: Sexual Offense Reported

This timely warning was e-mailed to students, faculty and staff on Sept. 17 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

In order to promote safety on the Wake Forest University campus, the University is issuing this Timely Warning Notification concerning a possible threat to the community.

The Wake Forest University Police Department received two anonymous reports on the night of Sept. 16 alleging sexual assault occurred late last Friday night or early Saturday morning at 1101 Polo Road, a private property immediately off campus. University Police officials do not know if the two anonymous reports are about one alleged incident or two separate alleged incidents.

One report was made through the Silent Witness website, the other report was made by an anonymous phone call. Neither report identified the victim, possible assailants or witnesses.

It is not known if anyone involved is associated with Wake Forest.

The University Police Department is requesting information from anyone who might be able to provide more details about the alleged incident or incidents.  The emergency number for University Police is 336-758-5911; non-emergency is 336-758-5591.

A message from Vice President Rue and Police Chief Lawson

This message was e-mailed to students, faculty and staff Aug. 28 on behalf of Vice President for Campus Life Penny Rue and Chief of Police Regina Lawson:

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

As Wake Forest begins the 2018-19 academic year, it is a good time to share information about University resources related to safety and security that are available to students, faculty and staff. Much of this information may be familiar to returning students, as well as faculty and staff who have been here a while.  Students new to the University may have learned about some of it, already, but it is valuable information that is worth repeating.

Wake Alert

  • Wake Alert is the University’s mass notification system for communicating about emergencies and less threatening but significant situations involving safety and security. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to become familiar with it. Visit the Wake Alert website, where messages would be posted in an emergency, and another website, Wake Ready, which offers considerable information about emergency preparedness, key University contacts in emergencies and more.
  • For the first time, Wake Forest is using a new mass notification software that will enable Wake Alert messages to be delivered rapidly through several communication methods, simultaneously. In an emergency, a Wake Alert message can be sent using the Wake Alert website, a banner at the top of the University home page, text messaging, e-mail, voice mail, Twitter and Facebook.  The University can use additional methods for announcing emergencies, including outdoor and indoor alert systems.
  • As in the past, the University community will also see Wake Alert being used, occasionally, for a non-emergency crime alert, as well as announcing extraordinarily unstable weather or a campus closing due to snowy and icy conditions.

LiveSafe

  • Download the LiveSafe mobile app. The app is free and makes it easy 24/7 to engage in a two-way conversation with the Wake Forest University Police Department. As the department’s web site announces, “With LiveSafe, you can use your cell phone as a personal security device that allows direct access to police, 911 emergency services, emergency location sharing, information sharing with quick tips, and a peer-to-peer SafeWalk tool.  The app can be useful to students, faculty and staff.

University Shuttles

  • Transportation and Parking Services offers a system of complimentary shuttles available to the University community. Throughout the night, the OnCall demand shuttle can be especially helpful.  It is available daily during the academic year from 6 p.m.-7 a.m.  Check this website for shuttle schedules and more details.
  • The Transloc Rider app can be used to catch a ride and track University shuttles through GPS technology.
