All serious incidents, commonly referred to as Part I crimes, including
murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, auto theft, and arson, are
reported to the City of Philadelphia's Police Department. Additionally,
the Philadelphia Police Department provides the Holy Family Public Safety Department with a report of incidents that have been
reported to them for the neighborhoods surrounding the campus. Known
and reported crimes against persons, on and off campus, are posted
on Holy Family University's Security Web page and are available for
review on a daily basis.
All incidents should be reported promptly to Holy Family's Public Safety Department. For each incident reported, an investigation is conducted and a file is created. If the situation warrants, local police are contacted for assistance. Any student or employee who observes an incident such as theft, substance abuse, assault, or suspicious behavior should report the activity to the Public Safety Department by dialing 267-341-3361.
Daily Incident Journal
Holy Family's Public Safety Department maintains an incident journal in its office. This is a chronological listing of all crimes and significant incidents responded to and documented by public safety officers. It also includes the names of persons arrested, if known, and charged in criminal situations, and it is open for review by any member of our community
In an Emergency
Creating a safe environment and a secure campus is a responsibility shared by everyone at Holy Family University. We all need to be particularly aware of our surroundings as we continue pursuing our academic mission.
To report an Emergency, students and employees should take the following steps:
:: Report the incident to Holy Family's Public Safety Department by calling extension “0” from a campus phone, or go to the nearest emergency call box, located throughout the campus. The emergency call boxes dial directly to the Public Safety Department.
:: Communicate as much information about the incident as possible (e.g., location, type of incident, description of those involved).
If you have any questions about Emergency Preparedness, contact the Director of Public Safety.
