With your permission, an officer with the Clark College Security Department will file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity to the public. 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 accurate records of the number of incidents involving students, determine where 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 crime statistics for the institution.

Emergency Response and Notification

Emergencies or disasters can happen any time and usually occur with little or no warning. When an emergency occurs at Clark College, our safety and speedy recovery depend on existing levels of preparedness and coordinated response from students, faculty and staff. Everyone should be aware of what to do in an emergency. During a time of emergency, Clark College Security and Safety and/or a designated College administrator, (Executive Cabinet or Emergency Management Planning Committee (EMPC) member), shall immediately implement the appropriate emergency procedures necessary to protect life-safety and College assets/functions.

Upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health and safety of students, employees and visitors occurring on any of the campuses, Clark College will determine and employ the appropriate communication methods to notify the affected college community immediately and without delay. Confirmation of significant emergencies will require direct investigation by appropriate college personnel. Taking into account the safety of the community, Clark College will determine the content of the notification and initiate the appropriate elements of the emergency notification system unless the notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. The College mass notification system (Informacast) is designed to send emergency notifications through phones, computers and common area speakers. Employees must familiarize themselves with the College emergency response protocols to effectively respond to emergency notifications. Clark College may also utilize "Rave" as a secondary means to notify students, faculty and staff of emergency situations. "Rave" can send out emergency alerts via e-mail, home and cell phones and text messages. "Rave" is an opt-in notification system where individual users are required to register to receive notifications.

Faculty, staff and students are strongly encouraged to sign up for the college's emergency text message alert system. Go to www.getrave.com, click on the "Register" button, and log in with your Clark College network username and password. Follow instructions to set up your mobile phone to receive emergency text messages.

Situations that may warrant a message being sent via Rave or Informacast are school closings, weather emergencies and crimes occurring on or around campuses, etc.

College Administration will issue and re-issue campus-wide emergency lockdown messages via the mass notification system.
  1. Information will be given in clear language.
  2. Information will include all known information that answers the basic questions of Who, What, Where, When, and How.
  3. Information will be provided when possible via mass notification and Rave.
  4. College Administration shall continue to inform the college community through constant real-time updates of the activity, both College-wide and to responding emergency agencies.

Sexual Assault Policy and Procedures

Victims of a sex offense at Clark College first priority should be to seek a place of safety. They should then obtain necessary medical treatment. The Security Department strongly encourages a victim of a sexual assault report the incident in a timely manner. Time is a critical factor for the collection and preservation of evidence. Victims should contact the Vancouver Police Department by calling from a campus phone by dialing 9-1-1 immediately and/or then contacting the Clark College Security/Safety Department at 992-2133 (from campus phones extension 2133; 992-6133 at CTC). Filing a police report does not obligate the victim to prosecute.

Victims should not attempt to clean themselves or tamper with any evidence until the proper law enforcement agency can be contacted. Victims should not take showers, use a tampon, or change clothing until the appropriate law enforcement agency is contacted and an incident report and medical examination are completed. The clothing and examination by a qualified physician are important evidence that should be preserved to prove that a sexual assault has occurred and to help with the successful prosecution of the offender. Victims have the option of contacting the Vancouver Police Department or the College Security/Safety Department. If the Security/Safety Department is contacted first, they will assist in notifying the proper authorities.

Victims of a sexual assault may decide to have the incident investigated through the criminal justice system and/or the Student Conduct process. A college representative can guide the victim through the various options and provide assistance if requested by the victim. Various counseling options are available through the college's counseling office. Counseling and support services (24 hours) outside the college can be obtained through the YWCA at 1-800-695-0501 or 360-696-0167.

Sex offense educational materials are available in Health Services, Security and Student Services. After an alleged sex offense, academic change options may be discussed with the college's counseling staff. Disciplinary procedures and sanctions for sex offenses are prescribed in the Code of Student Conduct or employee contracts/personnel rules, as applicable. The college's Health Services (campus extension 2264 and pager 735-6137) is located in Health Sciences (HSC), room 124. Counseling services and/or referrals are available in these offices.

Level 3 Sex Offender Registration

The Clark College Security and Safety Department considers the protection of our campus community from sex offenders to be of the utmost importance. The 1990 Community Protection Act attempts to provide adequate notice to the community regarding sex offenders attending or working on campus.

In accordance with the "Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act" of 2000, which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the Clark College Security Department provides a link to the Clark County Sheriff's Office Registry. This act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the college community where law enforcement information regarding registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires a registered sex offender to notify each institution of higher education in the state that they are employed, carries a vocation, or are a student. In the state of Washington, sex offenders who are enrolled in a public or private institution of higher education must also notify the local county sheriff immediately. Pursuant to the Community Protection Act of 1990, the Clark County Sheriff's Office is the lead agency for compiling and maintaining information on sex offenders residing in Clark County. Using this public information to threaten, intimidate or harass sex/kidnap offenders will not be tolerated by law enforcement agencies of Clark County. In addition any student violating this provision could be subject to the Clark College Student Code of Conduct. The Clark County SO web site is http://www.co.clark.wa.us/sheriff/community/offenders.html. In addition, Clark College Security and Safety provides information on any Level 3 sex offenders who are registered students or employees. This information can be obtained at http://www.clark.edu/student_services/security/offender.php. (Additional information on the Clark College Level 3 Sex Offender Administrative Policy 527.055).

Timely Warnings

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the Director of Security and Safety, or their designee, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide "timely warning" will be issued. The warning will be issued through the college e-mail system to students, faculty and staff and the campus' student newspaper "The Independent", and student bulletin boards. The information will also be posted at the Information Desk of the Security and Safety Department.

Per the Clery Act, timely warnings can be issued for the following crimes, if (1) the crime is reported to campus security authorities, (2) the crime is determined to pose a serious or continuing threat to Clark College students, faculty and employees, and (3) the crime occurred on campus, in or on non-campus buildings or property owned by Clark College or on public property that is within the campus or immediately adjacent to campus: A timely warning may be issued for any other crime or incident as deemed necessary or appropriate.

Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to the college's Campus Safety office by phone or in person.

Weapons on Campus

Administrative policy 527.020 WEAPONS ON CAMPUS Possession or use of firearms, explosives, dangerous chemicals or other dangerous weapons which can be used to inflict bodily harm or to damage real or personal property is prohibited on the college campus, at any other facilities leased or operated by the college, or at any activity under the administration or sponsorship of the college. Exceptions to this policy are permitted when the weapon is used in conjunction with an approved college instructional program, is carried by a duly constituted law officer, or is otherwise permitted by law.

Effective from the 1999 calendar year, the Clery Act requires the reporting of crime statistics for an expanded area beyond WSU Vancouver's campus. The law and accompanying regulations also require these statistics to be shown in specific geographic categories (or venues) as defined below.

Federal regulations define On Campus as any building or property owned or controlled by an institution within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution's educational purposes, including residence halls; and any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to the said area and is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students, and supports institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor) 34 CFR 668.46(a).

On campus - residential facilities only is a sub-category of On Campus showing the number of on-campus crimes that took place in dormitories or other residential facilities for students on campus 34 CFR 668.46(c)(4)(ii). NOTE: WSU Vancouver does not have residential facilities or a residential population. On adjacent public property is defined as all public property, including thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking facilities, that are within the campus, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus 34 CFR 668.46(a). In or on a non-campus building or property is defined as any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution and any building or property owned or controlled by an institution that is used in direct support of, or in relation to, the institution's educational purposes, is frequently used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution 34 CFR 668.46(a). NOTE: WSU Vancouver has no property meeting this definition.

Hate Crimes: The Clery Act requires the separate reporting, by category of prejudice, of any crime reported in the classifications above and any other crime involving bodily injury that manifests evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the victim's actual or perceived race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or disability. No hate crimes were reported in the crime classifications in the above table at Washington State University Vancouver from 1998 to 2004.

The University does not record statistics for crimes involving students or student organizations that occur in other law enforcement jurisdictions as part of the Uniform Crime Report. However, the Washington State University Vancouver Department of Public Safety does maintain good communication with local law enforcement and tries to monitor incidents involving students that do occur in other jurisdictions.
