Missing Person Policy at the University of Hartford

The Missing Person Policy on campus is a policy that lets people list a confidential contact that will be contacted if someone thinks a student has gone missing.

The contact does not need to be the same as the student’s emergency contact. If the student is 17 years old then public safety has to let the parents know that the student has gone missing.

If a student goes missing, public safety will do a background check to see if the student had any personal or academic problems as to why they might go missing. Some times when a student goes missing, it is just a case of the student going away for the weekend and forgetting to tell people.

There have only been around two missing persons cases on campus both of which were just incidents such as a student forgetting to tell someone they were going home.
