Most instances of crime on this campus have involved the theft of unattended personal property including property left in parked cars. Members of the Albany Medical Center community are urged to take all necessary precautions to avoid becoming a victim of such crimes.
Individuals exposed to criminal, threatening or suspicious behavior, should report these instances to the Center’s Security Department at once so that safety measures may be instituted. Other reportable incidents include, but are not limited to:
Report the incident to law enforcement agencies
If you are a victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action either through Albany Med Security or the criminal justice system, you may want to consider making a confidential report.
With your permission, the Director of Security or a designee can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, Albany Medical Center can keep an accurate record of incidents involving students, determine if there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution.
