Consistent with the Clery Act, The University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis Office of Public Safety has established the following missing person’s policy. Any individual who believes a currently enrolled UHSP student is missing shall notify the Office of Public Safety. Following notification, public safety will commence an investigation along with the Office of Student Affairs as soon as reasonably possible. Should the investigation result in the conclusion that the student is missing, the Office of Public Safety will notify the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police and/or the appropriate local law enforcement agency immediately, as well as the student’s missing person contact within a span of time not to exceed 24 hours from the time the student was determined to be missing. If the missing student is under the age of 18, and not an emancipated individual, public safety or student affairs will notify the student’s parent or legal guardian immediately after the University determines that the student is missing, in addition to notifying the contact person designated by the student.

This policy applies to students who reside in on-campus housing and who is determined to have been missing for 24 hours.
