The Murray State Police Department is committed to the safety of our students, faculty, and staff and is providing this notice in compliance with the “Timely Warning” provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998.  On June 4, 2018, the Murray State Police Department received a copy of a court order (see attached) from the Logan County Kentucky Circuit Court regarding Lyle Scott Newsom that was issued on May 31, 2018.
