Subject: Campus Safety Update

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:


Since late Wednesday night three burglaries have been reported on the Wesleyan campus.  All of the incidents took place in wood frame houses, two on Lawn Ave. and one in the 100 block of Church St.  In all cases laptop computers have been stolen. Entry in all incidents has been through an unlocked window or door, and only property has been targeted.   The time frame seems to be in the late evening hours.    Public Safety is working with the Middletown Police Dept. and a complete investigation is underway.  I ask you take a few moments and review the safety tips listed below.  Please be vigilant and report any suspicious persons or activity promptly.  Public Safety can be reached 24/7 at 860-685-3333.  If you encounter a crime in progress call 9-1-1. 

I will update the community as additional information becomes available. Please contact me with any concerns.


Best Regards,


Scott W. Rohde
