Campus Safety - Incident Reporting

Incident Reporting

Pierce College encourages employees, students and visitors to immediately report any incidents on campus that may constitute a crime, student code of conduct violation, physical injury or an emergency - including threats, harassment or family violence, so they may be dealt with in a timely and consistent manner.

This site contains information about on and off campus resources, and is made available to all Pierce College community members.  The information about “resources” is not provided to suggest that those resources are “crime reporting entities” for Pierce College.  Crimes should be reported to Pierce College Campus Safety to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate.  For example, a crime that was reported only to the Pierce County Rape Crisis Center would not be included in the Pierce College crime statistics.

To report in-progress crimes, fires or medical emergencies, please dial 9-911 from any college telephone, and then contact Campus Safety at:

Pierce College Campus Safety sends a request each year to all campus security authorities which encourage them to inform the persons they are working with of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics, when they deem it appropriate.

The following forms are provided to report crimes, incidents or accidents.  They are available for printing on-line, or can be picked up at the Campus Safety office.  Please fill them out as completely and accurately as possible, and turn them back in to Campus Safety.

Daily Crime Logs

The daily crime/incident report logs for the most recent 60 day period are open to public inspection during normal business hours at the Campus Safety Offices located on each college campus.  Portions of the log older than 60 days will be made available within two business days of a request for public inspection.

Criminal Activity Off Campus

If either the Lakewood Police Department, or the Puyallup Police Department, is contacted about criminal activity occurring off-campus involving Pierce College students, they may notify Campus Safety.  However, there is no official policy requiring such notification.

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, a Pierce College Campus Safety Officer 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.
