Not sure where Shannon Bunger is but we are already donating here!

In light of recent tragic events across Indiana and the country, we find it important to remind everyone of the bus stop laws. Please pay attention and STOP for school busses.

If it sounds fishy... don't take the bait!

IUPD has been made aware of a Job Offer Scam targeting IU students. Here is how the scam works: 1. You randomly receive an email with a job offer (part-time/internship) that promotes the ability to work from home. 2. The company will request that you reply to the email accepting the job offer and possibly requesting a resume and additional Personally Identifiable Information (PII). 3. You may receive an email in return with a letter of employment, assigning you to a SUPERVISOR. 4. The supervisor may email and/or text you stating that you will receive a check that you are to deposit in your PERSONAL bank account. 5. You will be instructed to transfer the money from your account to a third party, either using a wire transfer service or gift cards. THIS IS A SCAM!!! What should you do? 1. Do not give the company your Personal Identifying Information. 2. Research the company before you apply for the position. 3. If you suspect the offer is fraudulent, immediately contact IUPD. What are signs of a fraudulent offer? 1. The initial email is sent to multiple people, possibly with the same last or first names as if selected from an alphabetical list. 2. The company is requesting all or part of your Personal Identifying Information. 3. Your main source of communication with your new employer is via texting. 4. You are asked to send your employer money, even if they say you will be reimbursed. Remember most companies do not make unsolicited job offers.

IU BLOOMINGTON Crime Notice: October 3, 2018 In compliance with the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, a Crime Notice is being issued for a reported Rape. REPORTED OFFENSE: On October 3, 2018 at 12:53 AM the IUPD received a report of a rape. The suspect met the victim on the IU Bloomington campus during the evening hours on September 28, 2018. During the early morning hours the following day, the suspect performed nonconsensual sexual acts on the victim while inside a dorm room. Neither the suspect nor the victim are affiliated with the University. TIME AND LOCATION OF OFFENSE: The events took place on September 29, 2018 at approximately 2:30 AM at McNutt Quad. SUSPECT: The suspect is not affiliated with the University. The suspect’s identity is known to IUPD, however, and the investigation is ongoing. SAFETY TIPS: Sexual assault can happen to anyone. Each member of the IU Bloomington community shares in the responsibility to create and maintain a safe and respectful environment for all individuals. You can help reduce the risk of sexual assault by watching out for the safety of others. While not all crimes of sexual violence are alike, the following information may be helpful: - Consent – Anyone initiating any kind of sexual contact with another person must obtain their consent. Consent is an agreement or permission expressed through affirmative, voluntary words or actions that are mutually understandable to all parties involved. Consent cannot be given by someone who is incapacitated by the use of alcohol and/or drugs. - Bystander Intervention – Look out for each other. If one of you cannot be with a group of trusted friends, tell each other where you are going, whom you will be with, when you expect to return, and that you’ll contact them if anything changes. If you see someone in trouble, safely intervene or call the police immediately. - Personal Safety – Perpetrators often use drugs and/or alcohol to target potential victims. Date rape drugs are tasteless, colorless, odorless, can be ingested in a multitude of forms, and effects are not immediately apparent. Be cautious of any substance you are drinking, eating or inhaling that you have not personally prepared and has not remained in your constant control. - Perpetrators of sexual assault are often more likely to assault someone they know, rather than a stranger. The perpetrator, not the survivor, is responsible for any instance of sexual assault. Anyone with information on this crime or any other crime is encouraged to call the IU Police Department – Bloomington at 812-855-4111. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
