In the event of a crime, students are strongly encouraged to contact PCOM security or, in extreme cases, to directly contact the local police department.
PCOM security department records all reported crimes that occur on campus. As required by the College and University Security Act of Pennsylvania, the College submits a crime report annually to the state police.
If a member of the College community has reason to believe that a student is missing, contact Security and Public Safety immediately. Security and Public Safety will generate a missing person report and initiate an investigation.
After investigating the missing person report, should Security and Public Safety determine that the student is missing and has been missing for more than 24 hours, Security and Public Safety will notify the local police department.
