Cedar Crest College Campus Police

GENERAL PROCEDURES FOR REPORTING A CRIME OR EMERGENCY

Security PatchCommunity members, students, faculty, staff and guests are encouraged to report all crimes and public safety related incidents to Campus Security in a timely manner. To report a crime or an emergency on the campus of CCC, call Campus Police by pressing “0” (“operator”) or, from outside the campus phone system, 610-437-4471. To report a non-emergency security or public safety related matter, call Campus Police at extension 3522 or, from outside the campus phone system, 610-606-4642. Dispatchers operate these telephone numbers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In response to a call, CCC Campus Police will take the required action by dispatching an officer or asking the individual to stop by the Campus Police office to file an incident report.

All Campus Police incident reports are forwarded to the Dean of Student Affairs for review and potential action by the Dean or Honor and Judicial Board. Campus Police officers will investigate a report when it is deemed appropriate. Additional information obtained via the investigation will also be forwarded to the Dean of Student Affairs. If assistance is required from the City of Allentown Police, Fire Department, or other public safety entity, Campus Police will contact the appropriate unit. If a sexual assault should occur, staff on the scene, including Campus Police officers, will offer the victim a wide variety of services. Publications that are produced contain information about on-campus and off-campus resources. That information is made available to provide CCC community members with specific information about the resources that are available in the event that they become the victim of a crime.

The information about “resources” is not provided to infer that those resources are “reporting entities” for CCC. Crimes should be reported to CCC Campus Police to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate. A crime that was reported only to the Allentown Police Department may not be included in the CCC crime statistics.

ACCESS TO FACILITIES
It is the responsibility of Campus Police personnel to lock and unlock all campus buildings according to class schedules and Campus events. Access to institutional facilities by employees is on an as-needed basis. Visitors to the campus seeking access to campus buildings and facilities for special events must do so through an individual host, sponsoring department, Campus Police or reservations.
