This procedure describes the steps to take when reporting a crime.

All crimes occurring on Lane Community College property, or at Lane Community College sponsored events, shall be reported to Lane Community College Public Safety (LCCPS).

Crimes in progress

Report by calling (541) 463-5555 or 911 (See Emergency Plan).

For all other crimes, or violations of the Student Conduct Code, reporting may be done via phone (541) 463-5558 or in person (Building 13, Room 107) and should be done as soon as possible.

Public Safety officers will determine the appropriate level of investigation and will report crimes of serious impact to the Lane County Sheriff's Department or other law enforcement agency with jurisdiction or an investigative interest.  A written report will be generated and may be available to crime victims for assistance with insurance claims, crime reporting, and other actions.

An individual does have the right to report directly to the Lane County Sheriff's Department, or other law enforcement agency, crimes against them or their personal property that occur on Lane Community College property, or at a Lane Community College sponsored event.  Lane Community College Public Safety (LCCPS) shall encourage individuals to report all crimes against them or their personal property that occur on Lane Community College property or at a Lane Community College event to the Lane County Sheriff's Department or other law enforcement agency. 

All losses of college owned property, for any reason, shall be reported by the department that incurred the loss to the budget analyst for review of applicable insurance coverage (see Insurance: Property and Liability).  All losses of college owned property as the result of a possible crime shall be reported to Public Safety within 24 hours of knowledge of the occurrence.
