Burglary

The Western Kentucky University Police Department has received an unusual amount of burglary reports over the past four months. In most of these cases, the occupants of the residence hall rooms had gone to sleep with their doors unsecured. This is of great concern to our university community due to the possible threat these unsecured doors represent to our student body. So far, we have been fortunate that these unsecured doors have only resulted in property crimes. This notification is being sent as a reminder to all of our student body residing both on and off campus to always use caution in all activities, but in particular to secure the doors to their residence. Please take the time to keep yourselves and your property safe from criminal activities.
