The safety of everyone is of utmost importance to us. The Queens Campus Police Department
is committed to creating an environment in which teaching, research, community life
and public service flourish. We are dedicated to upholding and enforcing the law and
managing risks to ensure the safety of students, faculty, staff and guests at Queens.
We strive to maintain excellence and integrity, and respect the rights and dignity
of all persons with whom we make contact.
Since the Queens Campus Police Department was created in the early 1980s, the university
has maintained a consistent crew of officers. All Queens' officers are state-certified
police officers, who have undergone extensive training and have the same powers as
other certified law enforcement officers in the state of North Carolina.
Our office is located in the heart of the residential quad on the main campus. We
are extremely involved with student life, striving to foster an approachable and protective
environment in which students, faculty and staff rely on our support for any number
of safety and security issues. The Campus Police Office is housed in the building located on the northwest side of
the Evans Clock Tower.
Annual Security Report
Queens University of Charlotte prepares this report in compliance with the Jeanne
Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. Statistics include
alleged criminal offenses reported to the Queens University Campus Police Department, other
law enforcement agencies and other University officials who have "significant responsibility for
student activities." The data collected does not necessarily reflect prosecutions
or convictions of crimes. This report does include reports of crimes provided by non-police
authorities and anonymous reports, neither of which may have been reported to nor
investigated by the Queens University Police Department. As a result the statistics
cannot be compared to those gathered by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting System which
only collects reports of crime from local and state law enforcement agencies. The
Campus Security Act requires that colleges and universities:
- Publish an annual report every year by October 1 that includes three years of campus
crime statistics and certain campus security policy statements
- Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or
running through the campus, and certain non-campus facilities and remote classrooms.
The statistics must be gathered from campus police or security, local law enforcement
and other university officials who have "significant responsibility for student and
- Provide "timely warning" notices of those crimes that have occurred and pose an ongoing"threat
to students and employees"
- Disclose in a public crime log "any crime that occurred on campus...or within the
patrol jurisdiction of the campus police or the campus security department and is
reported to the campus police or security department."
For real-time class information, students can check the queens.edu website and expect
QAlert messages. The university's crisis management team will communicate with members
of the campus community in a variety of ways depending on the nature of the incident.
QAlert is the emergency notification system that we use to notify the campus community
of an emergency, incident, inclement weather or class cancellations. It sends messages
about the status of a given situation, as well as other details the campus needs to
know. Students, faculty and staff are automatically registered for QAlert through
the university's enterprise resource management system. To review and/or update your contact information—including your cell phone number for text messages—log in using your network user
name and password and then select the "Update Your Contact Information" button in the middle of the
Queens Safe Initiative Program
