Campus Security Authority – Who Must Report A Crime
On an on-going basis the College collects crime statistics for the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The reporting of crime statistics is not only mandated by the U.S. Department of Education, but allows current and prospective students and employees to be knowledgeable about campus crime and make informed decisions.
According to the Department of Education, any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution must report alleged crimes. This includes reporting murder, sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle thefts, and hate crimes. Any drug and/or alcohol arrests or disciplinary referrals that have been reported to you, must be forwarded to this office. Incidents of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and hate crimes must be reported. In addition to the above crimes, larceny, simple assault, intimidation and destruction/vandalism of property that is motivated by bias are required to be reported. Any on-campus fire must also be reported.
If you or anyone in your department, including faculty who are advisors to student organizations, RA’s, or coaches that become aware of any of these crimes, fires or referrals that have occurred on campus must report the matter to Marist Security.
As a reminder, should you become aware of any sexual misconduct, harassment or incident of discrimination, you must report the incident to The College’s Title IX Office. This can be done by calling the Title IX Coordinator at 845-575-3349.
