September 30, 6:52 pm: Biosciences Complex - A building custodian reported he'd observed a suspicious male on the third and then main floor of the building.  When the individual noticed he'd been seen by the custodian, he "took off" outside and towards Barrie Street.  A subsequent search of the building determined all areas were secure except a second floor door that was found propped.  The suspect is described as a tall, thin man with a beard and "messy" hair.  At the time of this incident he was wearing a brown jacket and carrying a big bag.

September 9, 9:46 pm: Campus - Security staff at Kingston General Hospital contacted the ERC to report they'd just dealt with a suspicious individual who had been loitering around the hospital's main entrance.  When he was first observed and asked if he required assistance, he did not respond and then ran off when their Security officer approached him.  He ran into the nearby underground garage on Stuart Street and then exited about 10 minutes later, aimed a laser pointer at them, and then rode westward on a bicycle.  The Security Supervisor and a Security Patrol searched the Campus, including the Residences area, but were unable to relocate the individual.  The suspect was described as being a Native male with long dark hair, approximately 6' tall, with some letters tattooed on his right arm. At the time of this incident he was wearing a grey tank top or muscle shirt, blue shorts, white sneakers, had a black backpack and was riding a green mountain bike.

The Security Supervisors already on scene for the game were informed of the request, and approached the individual to ask that he remove the signs. The individual refused to comply with the request. Security staff then met with Athletics staff personally to inform them of the individual's position. Athletics staff reiterated that the signs were inappropriate and in contravention of the Athletics policy of not allowing large signs within the stadium.

Map showing general location of assaultSeptember 22, 12:01 pm: Off Campus - The Emergency Report Center received a call from a female student who wanted to report an assault that had taken place the previous night. The caller reported she had been walking home alone on Mack Street near Victoria Park at about 11:45 pm, when she noticed two males walking behind her.  One of the males grabbed her from behind, at which point the student stomped on his foot and tried to run away but the suspect managed to grab her arm or shirt and hit her on the side of the head.  She believes she may have been knocked unconscious briefly, but managed to make her way home after her head cleared and she saw that both males had disappeared.  The caller reported that she had not been sexually assaulted and mentioned both that there had been people in the nearby park at the time and that it appeared only one of the two males was involved.  The suspect who had grabbed and hit her was described as being very tall and wearing a hat (possibly 'American Eagle' or 'Abercrombie and Fitch'), had a deeper than average voice, and smelled strongly of alcohol. She thought she heard the other male tell the attacker to let her go but could not provide a description of that individual.  The student was provided with a number of University and city resources to contact and advised of the various safety services provided by Campus Security and other departments at Queen's.

September 21, 01:35 am: Campus - The Emergency Report Center received a call from WalkHome staff in the JDUC that one of their radio equipped teams had recently observed a female struggling with a naked male in the street near the corner of Division and Clergy streets outside the PhysEd Centre.  The Walkhome member reported the female had pushed the male away from her and left the scene while the male suspect entered a nearby house.  A bus driver also witnessed the event and informed the Walkhome staff that the female involved had been limping as she left the area.
The Security Supervisor was immediately dispatched to the scene but, due to the time that had elapsed between the incident and the report to Security, they were unable to locate the victim, the suspect, or the bus driver.

September 10, 8:40 pm: Campus - While on mobile patrol of campus, the Security Supervisor was stopped by a female student who reported she'd been confronted and intimidated by a group of males. The student said she was walking alone, heading south on Division Street, when three males surrounded her near the PhysEd Centre.  One of the males said to her that it was a "nice night for a mugging", and then after a short pause the group of males walked away.  She did not recognize the suspects but described them as possibly being upper year Queen's students who were wearing ballcaps, t-shirts and shorts.  Additional information was provided by the student and she was offered transportation to her destination, but declined as she was with friends at that point and felt safe. A check of the surrounding area was unsuccessful in locating the suspects.


September 21, 00:20 am: JDUC - An AMS student constable called the ERC to request Security attend Alfie's Pub to deal with a patrol who was refusing to leave.  The Security Supervisor and a Patrol attended the pub and, with the assistance of the student constables and the individual's friends, managed to have him move to the back hallway area.  There he was again asked to leave the pub but became uncooperative and argumentative until Kingston City Police were contacted to attend.  At that point he and his friend left the scene after providing identification - security cleared the incident soon afterwards at 00:42 am.  Pub management are consider a possible ban for this student and Security will be forwarding a report to the AMS Judicial Court for review.  

September 14, 00:40 am: JDUC - A student constable contacted the ERC to requested Security attend to a patron who was refusing to leave Alfie's Pub. The Security Supervisor and Patrol met up with the caller and were directed to three intoxicated female students just outside the pub, one of whom reportedly kept continued trying to get back in after being asked to leave.  As Security approached the group, the one student ran down the stairs to the Pub and again tried to gain access.  The Security Supervisor asked to speak to her away from the entrance and had to assist her in getting back up the stairs.  After a short conversation, a female student constable joined the group with a taxi chit and eventually was able to escort her safely to her home.

September 7, 11:04 pm: Campus - An AMS Student Constable contacted the ERC and requested Security meet with him behind the stage of the concert taking place in the Miller parking lot to deal with some girls who needed to be removed from one of the bands' buses. The Security Supervisors met with the Student Constable and were informed that three first year students were in a band's private bus and the Science Constable felt it might pose a liability issue. The band denied the students in question were on the bus until Kingston City Police, who attended at the request of another Queen's staff member, arrived on scene and boarded the bus. The girls soon exited and it was suggested that due to possible liability and safety issues it might be better for the girls to meet the band at the downtown bar they were going to after the event ended.  The girls eventually agreed with that advice and returned to the audience area of the concert.


September 20, 11:43 pm: Student Housing Area - Kingston City Police dispatch called the ERC and requested Security attend to assist Officers attending to a large house party on Aberdeen Street.  Security arrived and met up with Police on scene who were speaking with one of the tenants, advising that he have his guests move inside or face being fined. No assistance was required from Campus Security and when the area was checked later in the night it appeared the party had been broken up and police were on scene clearing the street.


September 17, 10:36: Earl Hall - The Parking Department reported finding a vehicle with a forged permit and requested Security attend to record information.  The Security Supervisor attended and the vehicle was towed from the lot.

September 10, 2:59 pm: Mackintosh Corry Hall - The Parking Department reported discovering a vehicle in the MacCorry lot with a forged permit.  The Security Supervisor attended to record information and the vehicle was towed from the scene soon afterwards.

September 10, 1:19 pm: John Orr Tower - Campus Security was informed that Parking staff had found a vehicle with a forged permit in the John Orr parking lot. The Security Supervisor met with the parking staff on scene and recorded information before the vehicle was towed from the lot.


September 14, 9:28 pm: Student Housing Area - A student called to report that he was walking with a group of friends on University Ave at around 8:30 pm that evening when a woman rode by them and utter some profanities about "Arabs" and "Muslims".  The caller, a Muslim Queen's student, reported he believed the woman may be an upper year Queen's student and was Caucasian with blonde hair. The caller was not intimidated by the remark but had been asked to report such behaviour to the University.

Principal and Vice Chancellor William C. Leggett recently released the following message to the University:

The tragic events in Washington and New York this week have brought out the very best, and unfortunately some of the very worst, of human emotions and actions. On the one hand, we have all witnessed, and in many cases participated in, wonderful acts of kindness and citizenship in its purest form toward those affected by the calamity. On the other, we are beginning to witness expressions of anger, hatred, and intolerance that inevitably follow from acts of terrorism and war. Unfortunately, much of this has been expressed against members of the Arab and Muslim communities. 

The Queen's community is characterized by its diversity. It is one of our strengths. There is no place here for any deviation from the principle that we are all equal partners, all equally deserving of understanding and respect. We cannot allow our emotions, our collective sense of grief and anger, to diminish our commitment to this basic principle. 

I call on all members of our community to act with great sensitivity and respect in these difficult times, and to actively protect others' rights when you see them challenged. All of us - no matter what our nationality, race or religion - are shaken by this tragedy and grieve its consequences.

Addendum:  A memorial service will be held at 10:30 am on Friday, September 21 in Grant Hall to honour and remember the victims and families of the tragic events last week in the United States. The Reverend Brian Yealland will be leading the service.

Classes will be cancelled from 10:30 am to 11:30 am on Friday to allow faculty and students to participate. In addition, wherever possible, we ask that supervisors permit staff who wish to attend to do so.

The service will also be broadcast through a sound system outside of Grant Hall.

September 8, 9:27 am: Grease Pole Event - While on duty at the Orientation Week "Grease Pole" event, a Security Patrol observed a fight start up between two males near some outhouses.  The Security Supervisor responded and, with the assistance of the Security Patrol and Science Constables, the two parties were separated from each other.  However one of the individuals required the intervention of Kingston City Police - who were on scene specifically for the event - and was handcuffed and confined to the back seat of their cruiser for a short time before being released to University officials for possible disciplinary action.


Car broken into at West CampusSeptember 7, 9:46 am: West Campus - Campus Security received a call that a car parked in the lot near the West Campus tennis courts had been broken into sometime during the previous night.  The Security Supervisor met with the caller and noted that the passenger side from window had been smashed out although nothing appeared to be missing.  While at the scene, the Security Supervisor noticed that four other vehicles also appeared to have been broken into.  Each had a window smashed out and one of the owners reported a Sony CD player and about 12 CDs had been stolen from his car.

September 5, 9:35 pm: Student Housing Area - While on patrol of the Student Housing Area, the Security Supervisors were approached by a student on Aberdeen Street who reported another student had spray painted the side of his rental truck. He was in the process of cleaning the paint off, but wanted the incident recorded in case he was unable to get it completely clean and was subsequently fined by the rental company when he returned it.  The Security Supervisors questioned the student who'd painted the van and he provided a name that could not be found in the student database when checked by the ERC.  At that point, the student with the van was informed that he would have to contact Kingston City Police and file a report with them, since the incident took place off Queen's property. 

The ERC contacted KPD at the student's request and they were on scene by 9:48 pm.  The individual accused of painting the van provided the same name to the police officers as he'd given to Campus Security, and told them that his identification was at home.  The police officers decided to drive him to his home so he could get his ID and then returned at 10:10 pm to meet with the Security Supervisors. They reported the student had provided a false name and informed Security of his actual identity.  It was agreed by the student with the van that mischief charges would not be laid if the other student cleaned off the rest of the paint and paid any fines that the rental company might charge when it was returned.  The student who provided false identity to Campus Security and KPD was informed that he had violated the Queen's Code of Conduct (see also AMS Code of Conduct), and advised that a report would be filed that might be passed on to the AMS Judicial Committee for review.


September 05: 4:47 am: Victoria Hall - A caller reported two students were sleeping in their room when the outside window pane was smashed, likely by a thrown object. The Security Supervisors were informed and found glass in the driveway behind the residence - some from the window and some from broken bottles.  The area was patrolled but no suspects were located.  The PPS Grounds department was informed of the glass at that site as well as broken bottles found in the MacCorry parking lot and the ramp leading to the Victoria Hall lot.


Map showing general location of break-inSeptember 3, 3:37 pm: Student Housing Area - Campus Security received a report that a house on the 100 block of Barrie Street was broken into sometime over the weekend, and likely during the previous day. A second floor window was forced open and a large screen TV, computer, ring, and stereo speakers were stolen.  A report was filed with both Campus Security and the Kingston City Police and Queen's Apartment & Housing staff were informed to repair damage caused during the break in.
