Missing Persons Policy
In the event a person is reported missing from East Central University, every effort will be made to locate the person as soon as possible. The following steps will be taken:
1. Immediately refer the missing person(s) to the ECU Police Department by calling 580-559-5555.
2. Determine that the person is actually missing and the investigation shows the student has been missing for 24 hours.
3. Obtain all information needed to complete a report and enter the person in NCIC.
4. Alert area Law Enforcement that the person is missing.
5. Enter the person in NCIC as a missing person.
Allow students residing on campus to register confidential contact information in the event that the student is determined to be missing and advise students under the age of 18 that notification of a custodial parent is required after 24 hours have lapsed since the student is reported missing. This information is confidential and will only be accessed by authorized campus officials and law enforcement agencies.
For students who are not under 18 or are emancipated and have registered no contact, the appropriate law enforcement agency will be contacted and immediate action will be taken. If they have registered appropriate contact information, then those contacts will be notified.
Fire Safety Report On-Campus Housing
East Central University is committed to providing all information required in regards to campus safety, including our fire safety report. The institution will keep a fire log, recording all fire statistics, which will be published in the Annual Fire Safety Report.
The following information will be recorded and published annually:
- The number and cause of any fires that occur
- The number of deaths related to the fire.
- The number of persons injured as a result of the fire that necessitated treatment at a medical facility.
- The value of property damage related to the fire.
One fire drill will be held each semester in each residence hall. These fire drills will be unannounced. Residents present during the fire drill must participate. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action. During fire drills, residents will exit through the nearest exit door and will gather in the waiting areas away from the buildings, as directed by residence life staff members.
