was quite intoxicated, admitted he just left nearby Clark Hall pub and that
he had indeed been jumping on the vehicle earlier. Both he and his
companions had already been photographed by Security and he was allowed to
leave after being advised that the incident would be addressed by the

November 16, 3:01 am: Student Housing Area - The ERC received a call from a student reporting an unknown, intoxicated female had just walked into her home on Division Street. The caller asked that Security attend and provide the girl with a ride home, but called back within minutes - while Security was still enroute - to report the girl had left the house. Security checked the area without locating the girl and then returned to the house to pick up the jacket and wallet she'd left behind. The ERC soon called the student to inform her that her belongings could be picked up at our office later in the day.
November 16, 2:37 am: JDUC - The ERC received a call from the Union Street Emergency Phone without receiving any response aside from a male who stated the phone had been activated by "some idiot". The Security Supervisor was informed and managed to meet up with an intoxicated individual making his way up Union Street, but an offer to transport him home was declined.
November 11, 2:00 am: Gordon Brockington House - A residence don contacted the ERC to report a student just called City Police to attend and take a report for an assault that occurred off Campus. The caller requested Security meet the Officers when they arrived to escort them into the residence, and the Security Supervisor and a Patrol dispatched to that location. Police Officers arrived soon afterwards and took a report from the student before leaving for a downtown bar - where the incident occurred - to talk to staff there.
November 1, 2:30 pm: Ban Righ Hall - Campus Security was contacted by a student reporting they had been assaulted by another student earlier in the afternoon. The Security Supervisor took a report and consulted with the student, providing them with a number of options on how they could proceed with the incident. At 8:20 that evening, Kingston City Police dispatch contacted the ERC to request the Security Supervisor meet with an KPD Officer who was on campus investigating the assault. Police and Security met with a number of parties, including Residence Life staff, and concluded the evening with one student being issued a notice to appear in court.
November 9, 11:49 pm: Clark Hall - Pub staff requested Security arrive to assist with a patron they were having problems with. The Security Supervisor and a Patrol met with pub staff and an individual outside the Pub and were told that the patron had elbowed a staff member who was trying to break up a fight inside. The patron, who was not a Queen's student, provided ID to Security and was issued a Pub ban by their staff.
November 9, 2:02 am: JDUC - An AMS Constable contacted Security for assistance with a group of individuals at the main entrance of Alfies Pub. The Security Supervisor and a Patrol attended the main entrance to find an AMS Constable blocking another male from entering the Pub. The male student reported he had taken offense to the Pub staff member because he'd denied the student access to the Pub but allowed another group in instead. Pub staff reported that the student had pushed and swore at the AMS Constable and they requested he be identified. The student produced identification, contrary to the advise from other members of his group, and they were asked to leave the area. One of the group members became abusive and began yelling obscenities, at which point the Security Supervisor requested Kingston City Police attend and informed the group that the student's assault on the Constable might be brought up if they were still there when KPD arrived. This prompted the more rational members of the group to move everyone away from the area and the request for City Police attendance was cancelled. Campus Security took no further action with the student since he complied when asked to produce student identification - as is required by the AMS Code of Conduct - and Pub staff made no requests that the matter be pursued.
November 9, 00:36 am: JDUC - The ERC was contacted by an AMS Constable requesting assistance with some individuals who refused to leave an area outside Alfie's Pub. The Security Supervisor and a Patrol attended and met with Pub staff who reported three individuals had butted into the line up and refused to leave as directed. However the group had gone to the back of the line just as Security arrived and no further intervention was required.
November 5, 9:34 pm: Student Housing Area - A student reported she was followed by a white van from the corner of Division and Johnson Streets to Earl Street where she walked by another student and the van drove off. Some details of the vehicle were provided by the caller and Security did a complete search of the campus area but were unable to locate the van.
November 3, 8:30 pm: Victoria Hall - Staff at Rez Express reported they'd dealt with an individual suspected of shoplifting about an hour earlier. The suspect was apparently acting suspiciously inside the store and then ignored the cashier's request that he stop as he was going out the door. The store manager left the store and stopped the suspect, asking to see what he had in his pockets. He agreed to show her that his one pocket was empty, but refused to empty his other bulging pocket before walking away. As the call was not received until over a half hour after the incident, the suspect could not be located by Security and staff were asked to report such incidents immediately in the future. The suspect was described as a Caucasian male, approximately 5'6" tall and around 19 years old with a medium build and chin length wavy dark brown hair. At the time, he was wearing beige cargo pants and a beige 3/4 length jacket with green sleeves.
November 3, 4:53 pm: Policy Studies Building - A caller reported some skateboarders threw her young son's shoe up onto one of the building's overhangs and tried to take his money. The Security Supervisor arranged for a custodian to retrieve the shoe and met with the victim, who stated he was playing with a couple of friends in the building's south courtyard when about 6 skateboarders started throwing crab apples at them. When he and his friends returned fire with pieces of pumpkin that were laying around, the skateboarders took his shoe and tossed it onto the first level roof. The skateboarders had already left Campus by the time Security was notified.
November 2, 10:49 am: Richardson Hall - Campus Security received a call from staff at Richardson Hall, reporting they'd received a suspicious letter from the United States. Based on the information received, the letter sounded like one received by other Universities and reported to Queen's Security a couple of days previous. However the protocol for suspicious packages was implemented, with EH&S informed and people who came into contact with the envelope being isolated. It was soon determined there were no suspicious chemicals inside the envelope which contained anti-U.S. propaganda. The letter had a return address from Norristown, Pennsylvania as did similar letters received by other Universities in Canada.
