Although located in an urban setting, the Peabody campus presents a safe environment.  We are committed to informing the campus community of incidents that may occur on and around the campus. Notices are posted at various locations on campus and also distributed electronically.

Security Alerts

Security Alerts are posted on bulletin boards in all academic and residential halls and in other conspicuous areas to immediately alert the campus community of any serious crimes that have occurred on or near the campus.  The Campus Security Department sends alerts as quickly as possible after becoming aware of crimes that might affect the campus community.

Security Advisories

Security Advisories are published and posted on bulletin boards to inform the community of crimes outside of the areas covered by the Security Alerts.  Advisories may also be issued to advise of crime trends.  They include information on precautionary measures to prevent further occurrences of a particular crime.

Daily Crime and Fire Log

A daily crime log is maintained and is available for public view in the Campus Security Office.  An online version of the Peabody Institute crime log may be found at this link: Peabody Institute Crime Log.  Crime logs for other JHU campuses may be found here:  The Peabody Institute Fire Log may be found at this link: Peabody Institute Fire Log.
