Crimes across the Alamo Colleges are listed.
By Marco Horta
This semester, the Alamo Community Colleges Police blotter, or a crime report of the previous weeks incidents, is available online for students, faculty and staff to view at www.alamo.edu/district/police.
A weekly release of incidents will be posted on the Alamo Colleges website, and employees and students will receive their own report via email once a week. The report contains the date, time and site of the offense.
According to the blotter, if a campus is not listed on the report, there was no offense on that campus during the previous week.
The report also covers St. Philip’s Southwest Campus at 800 Quintana Road and district buildings at 201 W. Sheridan and 811 W. Houston Street.
“We try to use whatever means we can, Facebook or blotter, somewhere where the students, faculty and staff can read it,” Deputy Chief Joe Curiel said.
Information on on-going cases is not released, and investigators will not comment on open investigations, Curiel said.
Curiel said the blotter is a great way to keep students up-to-date.
“They (students) would know what’s transpiring in their community or campus area, so they will know what safety precautions to take or not to do,” Curiel said.
Students, faculty and staff can report suspicious activity to the Alamo College Police Department’s non-emergency number 210-485-0911.
Anyone wanting a police report on a closed case can request a copy of the investigation by calling the police department.
For 24-hour emergency dispatch, call 210-485-0099.
