In the event that a situation arises either on or off campus that, in the judgment of the Chief of University Police, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a "timely warning" (more frequently posted as a "crime alert") will be issued. These warnings/alerts are issued under the authority of the Vice Chancellor for Administration and distributed campus-wide. Such warnings will be issued via e-mail to students, faculty, and staff. Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, the warning may also be sent by e-Lert or posted on campus and in housing facilities. All timely warnings/crime alerts are posted to the SIUE Police Department web site at:; click on the Crime Alerts link under the Campus Safety tab.


e-Lert is another avenue used to notify SIUE students, faculty, and staff of an incident that warrants a crime alert. SIUE's e-Lert is a text messaging service that is available to all students, faculty, and staff. Registration is quickly done by going to and clicking on the "Sign Up Now" icon.
