Who May Call Campus Security
Any student, staff member of the College or visitor may contact the Security Department to report a crime or safety concern. Certain other campus employees who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities are mandated to contact the Security Department when they learn of a crime. Departments who routinely contact the officer on duty include Residence Life, Student Activities, Athletics and all faculty members. Those not obligated to report information concerning a crime include the Director of Counseling and members of Campus Ministry who work with victims on a confidential basis. The Counseling Director and members of Campus Ministry may report criminal activity anonymously without the identity of the victim ever being known. Victims of crime may also report an incident to the Security Department without providing their identity.
The officer on duty addresses reports of crime and medical emergencies immediately. The officer will respond to your complaint and meet with you to provide whatever assistance is necessary. Officers will investigate all reported crime and work with the victim(s) to identify those responsible. The investigating officer will remain in contact with the victim throughout the investigation until the case is closed. Should the responsible person be identified, the victim may choose to have the suspect arrested.
The Department will work with the victim to facilitate the prosecution. Mount Aloysius College will work with all victims of crime by modifying housing or class schedule upon request, when reasonably possible. The commission of any crime will not be tolerated at Mount Aloysius College.
