Statement Addressing Voluntary Confidential Reporting
Confidential Reporting Procedures
If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the College System or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report.
With your permission, Campus Security or a designee of SCC can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others.
With such information, the College can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, determine whether there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crimes statistics for the institution.
Statement Addressing Limited Voluntary Confidential Reporting
Shawnee Community College encourages anyone who is the victim or witness to any crime to promptly report the incident to the police. Because police reports are public records under state law, confidential reports for purposes of inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics can generally be made to other SCC campus security authorities, as identified below.
