Pursuant to Section 51.203 of the Texas Education Code, the primary jurisdiction of DCCCD Police Officers includes all counties in which property is owned, leased, rented, or otherwise under the control of the Dallas County Community College District. As peace officers, the Department’s police officers have the same authority to detain and arrest as municipal police officers.

The DCCCD Police Department is linked by computer to city, state and federal criminal justice agencies, which provides access to criminal records, wanted persons, stolen property, and vehicle information. All crimes reported to the DCCCD Police Department are thoroughly investigated and are referred for prosecution through the District Attorney’s Office when appropriate. Criminal matters involving our students may also be referred to the appropriate administration for disciplinary action.

Dispatchers are available at these respective telephone numbers 24 hours a day to answer calls. In response, to a call, DCCCD Police Officers will take the required action, either dispatching an officer or asking the victim to report to DCCCD Police Department to file an incident report. All reported crimes will be investigated by the Campus and may become a matter of public record. All DCCCD Police Department incident reports are forwarded to the Dean of Students for review and referral to the Office of Student Judicial Services for potential action, as appropriate. Additional information obtained via the investigation will also be forwarded to the Office of Student Judicial Services. If assistance is required from the LOCAL Police Department or the LOCAL Fire Department, DCCCD Police Department will contact the appropriate unit.

The DCCCD Police Department maintains excellent working relationships with all area law enforcement agencies including the Dallas Police Department, the Irving Police Department, Mesquite Police Department, Farmer’s Branch Police Department, Lancaster Police Department, Garland Police Department, DART Rail Station Police Department, and the Texas Department of Public Safety. These working relationships are maintained through periodic communication among agency administrators and by frequent contact between line officers and investigators cooperating on specific cases.

Jeanne Clery Disclosure

The Clery Act is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Campus Crime Statistics Act require that colleges and universities publicize campus crime statistics and reports of serious crime incidents. An annual report must be published every year by October 1, containing three years of campus crime statistics and certain campus security policy statements. These publicized statistics are meant to warn students, employees and applicants of the prevalence of campus crime.

Students and employees must be given crime reports that include statistics on murder and non-negligent manslaughter, negligent manslaughter, sex offenses (rape, fondling, incest and statutory rape) robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and hate crimes. The Annual Security Report must also describe how to report crimes and emergencies on the campuses, as well as the method used to collect data. The purpose of the Act is to educate the campus community about safety and security.

II. TIMELY WARNINGS AND PROCESS

Timely Warning Policy

Dallas County Community College District is required to provide on-going disclosures to the Campus community under the Jeanne Clery Act.  Timely warnings are issued in compliance with the Clery Act. This act requires that a timely warning be issued when one of the following offenses occurs on any DCCCD campus and there is reason to believe that there is a threat to students or employees. Timely Warning Notices will be distributed as soon as pertinent information is available, in a manner that withholds the names of victims as confidential, and with the goal of aiding in the prevention of similar occurrences.

All DCCCD Police Commanders or designee will develop timely warning notices to notify members of the community about serious crimes against people that occur on their campus, where it is determined that the incident may pose an ongoing threat to members of the DCCCD College community. These warnings will be distributed if the incident is reported either to DCCCD Campus Police directly or to the college police indirectly through a campus security authority.

The DCCCD Police department issues/posts Timely Warnings for the following kinds of incidents:

  • Murder
  • Aggravated assault - Cases involving assaults among known parties will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine if the individual is believed to be an ongoing threat to the larger college community.
  • Robbery involving force or violence - cases including pick pocketing and purse snatching will typically not result in the issuance of a Timely Warnings, but will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
  • Sexual assault - Incidents are considered on a case-by-case basis depending on the facts of the case, when and where the incident occurred, when it was reported and the amount of information known by the DCCCD Police Department.
  • Major incidents of arson
  • Other crimes as determined necessary by the campus Commander or his or her designee in his or her absence.

The DCCCD Police department will draft the timely warning notice containing the proposed crime alert and forward it to the Marketing and Creative Services Office. This office will review and revise the text as needed, and then transmit the email containing the crime alert to the college as a blast email. Updates to the college community about any particular case resulting in a crime alert also may be distributed electronically via blast email or posted on the college’s website.

At the same time the DCCCD Police department forwards the email containing the proposed crime alert to Marketing and Creative Services, the police also will forward it to the College President, the Vice President for Business Services and necessary administrators, or his/her designees for their review and possible distribution to trustees, officers or staff as they deem necessary and appropriate.

Crime alerts also may be posted as notices in college buildings, when deemed necessary. When a crime alert is posted in college buildings, it shall be printed on colored paper and be posted in the lobby/entrance area of the affected building(s) for seven days. A list of the buildings where crime alerts may be posted is maintained by the DCCCD Police Department. Crime alerts are filed in the case jacket with the corresponding incident report. A copy of the Timely Warning also is kept in the Marketing and Creative Services Office. The DCCCD Police Department does not issue crime alerts for the above listed crimes if any the following cases occur.

The department apprehends the subject(s) and the threat of imminent danger for members of any DCCCD College community have been mitigated by the apprehension. If a report was not filed with DCCCD Police Department or if DCCCD Police Department were not notified of the crime in a manner that would allow the department to post a “timely” warning for the community. A general guideline will include a report that is filed more than five days after the date of the alleged incident, as this may not allow DCCCD Police Department to post a “timely” warning to the community. This type of situation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Posted on the Web site (http://www.dcccd.edu) providing the College community with more immediate notification. Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to the DCCCCD Police office, by phone at 972-860-4290 or in person.

III. EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS AND PROCEDURES

Emergency Notifications

DCCCD Police department will immediately notify the campus community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on the campus. Emergency/Immediate notification is triggered by an event that is currently occurring on or imminently threatening the campus. Emergency/Immediate notification is in response to a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on the campus.

Emergency Notification messages will be issued to students and employees upon the confirmation of a significant emergency, dangerous situation, incident or crime impacting the DCCCD College Community and/or the surrounding area.

Each DCCCD Police Department will determine:

  • the process that each campus will use to confirm that there is such a significant emergency or dangerous situation;
  • the appropriate segment or segments of the District/specific campus to notify;
  • the content of the notification; and
  • the specific notification system. An emergency or dangerous situation may be confirmed by the Dallas County Community College District Department of Safety and Emergency Management, outside law enforcement or emergency management organizations.

Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures

DCCCD Police Department maintains an Emergency Response Plan that outlines responsibilities of campus units during emergencies. This plan outlines incident priorities, campus organization and specific responsibilities of particular units or positions.

DCCCD PD units are responsible for developing emergency response and continuity of operations plans for their areas and staff. Campus emergency management provides resources and guidance for the development of these plans.

Evacuations are signaled by a high-pitched continuous buzzer (sound) followed by automated verbal commands. Evacuations could be necessary in case of fire or bomb threat.

Definitions:

  • Incident Commander (IC): The one person in charge during an emergency. The Incident Commander will be the most qualified content expert present for the incident.

  • Community Emergency Response Team (CERT): District employees who have volunteered and received emergency management training. CERT members convey instructions from the IC and operate under the authority of the location’s chief executive officer.

  • Intruder Lockdown: Immediate threat at location. Person(s) at location intent on causing harm to others. If not at location, stay clear.

  • Police Activity Lockdown: Potential threat near the location (example: robbery suspect being chased by police in area). If not at location, stay clear.

  • Severe Weather Warning: Immediate threat of severe weather that requires taking immediate cover (example: tornado spotted in location’s area).

  • Shelter-in-Place: Immediate threat of a “noncriminal” nature (examples: hazardous spill outside; gas leak in area; chemical, biological and radiological).

  • Emergency Evacuation: Incident requiring evacuation of the building (example: confirmed or suspected bomb in the building).

  • Campus Closing: Location closing due to weather, power outage, water main break, etc.

  • Inclement Weather: District and campuses closing due to weather.

  • All Clear: This message is sent when the emergency condition is over. Threat or condition no longer exits.

Evacuations:

  • Follow instructions from the College Emergency Response Team (CERT) members and/or first responders.
  • If it is safe to do so, take your personal belongings and put away sensitive material. Position all items you will take with you so they are secure but quickly accessible. Remember – No personal property or location property is worth risking your safety or life.
  • After asking, assist staff or visitors with mobility issues who may need assistance.
  • Keep in mind that you might have to evacuate on foot in certain emergency situations (example: tanker fire blocking a road).

Evacuation at Locations with Multiple Floors

  • During evacuations, the fire department currently advises people not to carry individuals with disabilities downstairs, and, of course, never use an elevator during a fire.
  • Attempt a rescue evacuation only if you have had evacuation rescue training or the person is in immediate life-threatening danger and cannot wait for professional assistance.
  • Always ask someone with a disability how you can help and their permission before attempting any rescue technique or giving assistance. Ask how he or she can best be assisted or moved, and whether there are any special considerations or items that need to come with the person.
  • In an evacuation from upper floors, if the elevators are unavailable (example: fire), the fire department recommends that you assist people with physical disabilities to the nearest accessible fire-rated stairwell, preferably near elevators, so first responders can override the elevator’s fire-mode if it is safe to do so. Choose a visible spot out of the traffic flow.
  • If unable to exit a floor during a fire, in most buildings, inside a fire-rated stairwell is the place to wait for first responders.
  • Immediately send someone or go down the stairs and locate a first responder or CERT member who can relay the information to the Incident Commander, who will then dispatch first responders to the individual’s location.
  • The fire department states that well-meaning individuals may cause injury or death to themselves or to their disabled friend if they attempt an untrained rescue.

Fire:

In case of fire at a college or service location of DCCCD:     

  • Remember — No personal property or location property is worth risking your safety or life.
  • If it is safe to do so, take your personal belongings and put away sensitive material. Position all items you will take with you so they are secure but quickly accessible.
  • Secure sensitive areas. If you work in a sensitive area, such as the cashier office, secure these areas before leaving if possible to help prevent fire damage and/or theft.
  • After asking, assist staff or visitors with mobility issues who may need assistance.
  • Leave the area by means of the primary evacuation route. If this exit is blocked, use a secondary route.
  • Once outside the building, move at least 100 feet from the building. If instructed by College Emergency Response Team (CERT) members and/or first responders, move further away from the building(s). Wait for instructions.
  • Do not re-enter building until police, CERT members and/or the fire department advises it is safe to do so.

Remember R.A.C.E. if you discover a fire:

  • Relocate — if it is safe to do so, relocate or rescue people in immediate danger. Instruct others to report to one of the gathering areas as you leave the building. Be aware of people who may need assistance.
  • Alarm — Pull the building fire alarm to alert others. Move to a safe location. Call 972-860-4029 (District Central Dispatch) immediately using a cell phone, then contact a CERT member, and report the precise location of the fire.
  • Confine — Close all doors, windows and other openings to confine the fire. Shut off fuel sources such as piped gases and compressed gas cylinders as you evacuate, if this can be done safely.
  • Evacuate — evacuate building.

Fire Extinguishers

  • Use fire extinguishers only on small fires that are just starting to burn.
  • Never turn your back to a fire. Keep a clear exit between you and the fire at all times.
  • Lift the extinguisher by the bottom handle with one hand. The bottom handle will not activate the extinguisher.
  • Most extinguishers will have a plastic tab around the handle. Grasp the tab, pull and twist to break free. Discard tab.
  • Follow the P.A.S.S. acronym:
    • Pull — Pull the pin or ring after breaking plastic tie.
    • Aim — Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire.
    • Squeeze — Squeeze or press the handles together.
    • Sweep — Sweep the nozzle slowly from side to side, aiming at the base of the fire.
  • Continue until the extinguisher is empty.
  • Exit to a safe location.
  • Any type of fire must be reported. Call 911 on a district phone or District Central Dispatch at 972-860-4290 on your cell phone.

Bomb Threats

If you receive a bomb threat by telephone:

  • Do not pull a fire alarm.
  • Keep the caller on the phone as long as possible.
  • Do not interrupt the caller.
  • If the telephone has caller ID, note the telephone number.
  • Use the Department of Homeland Security Bomb Threat Checklist.
  • Perform a quick search of your area to identify suspicious or unfamiliar packages or items.
  • Do not touch any suspected item.

If you receive a bomb threat through another method:

  • If the bomb threat is handwritten, do not touch the object it was written on.
  • If message is electronic in nature, do not delete. Do not forward unless instructed by authorities.
  • Perform a quick search of your area to identify suspicious or unfamiliar packages or items.
  • Do not touch any suspected item.

In all the above incidents, call 911 on a college or district service location phone. If a college/district phone is not available, use any available phone and dial District Central Dispatch at 972-860-4290.

Finding a Suspected Bomb

  • Do not pull a fire alarm.
  • Do not touch the suspected bomb.
  • Leave the immediate area and inform others in your area as you exit.
  • If it is safe to do so, take your personal belongings. Position the items so they are secure but quickly accessible.
  • Do not turn on or use a cell phone in the area of the suspected bomb.
  • Call 911 away from the suspected bomb.

Intruder Lockdowns and Violent Criminal Behavior

Dial 911 on a college or district phone. If a college/district phone is not available, use any available phone and dial District Central Dispatch at 972-860-4290.

All intervention in criminal activity is the responsibility and duty of district police officers and local law enforcement.

No uniform policy can make determinations for all circumstances that may arise. Evacuating may be the best decision in one set of circumstances, while getting behind a locked and/or barricaded door may be more effective in another set of circumstances.                                         

  • If immediate harm is not present, leave the area and advise others to leave the location as quickly as possible.
  • If conditions present immediate harm, go to interior rooms and spaces that place as many walls and barriers between you and the event as possible. When you get into the room, turn out the lights and close any window blinds. Be sure to silence your cell phones. Even “vibrate mode” is too loud with many cell phones. Get low to the floor.
  • In most situations, if an Intruder Lockdown is announced, everyone should place themselves behind locked doors and/or in barricaded rooms.
  • As you enter a room, try bringing as many people as you can into the room.
  • Once you and others are locked or barricaded in a room, do not open the door for anyone, even if they are begging. If you open the door, the suspect simply has more victims.
  • Remain in safe areas until directed by police and/or fire personnel to evacuate. Do not open a door simply because someone shouts they are a police officer or first responder.

During an Intruder Lockdown incident, the wait could be very long. Police will have to go room by room to ensure that there are no further threats to public safety.

  • In most cases, district police officers will be backed up by city or county police officers whose uniforms you might not recognize.
  • Follow police officer’(s) instructions. Unless instructed otherwise, put your hands on top of your head. Do not make sudden moves — like quickly reaching for your belongings when they enter the room. Even the district police officers whom you speak to every day may not recognize you during an emergency. The officers will be focusing on your hands, not your face.

Options if you are caught out in the open:

  • Keep moving until you find an open room that you can lock or barricade.
  • Keep moving until you find a good hiding place.
  • Play dead. This only works after the shooting has started — the suspect knows where he/she has been in the building.
  • Fight back. This is a personal decision and should only be used as a last resort.

Active Shooter

Notify immediately: others in the area, avoid drawing attention from perpetrators! Secure the area: close, barricade and lock doors if possible Secure Yourself:

  • Remain silent: TURN OFF Pagers, Cell Phones & Computers
  • Turn off lights
  • Do not move or walk around
  • Crouch down and remain motionless
  • Put physical barriers between you and the entrance to your area
  • If no barriers are available, lie on the floor away from high traffic areas and remain motionless when is it over? Await an ‘All Clear’ message from police on the scene

CALL: If you perceive a threat or emergency situation: Dial 911 from a campus phone or call 972-860-4290 from a cell phone, send text messages if possible – do not use voice.

Police Activity Lockdown

For college and district service locations without the ability to lock outside doors quickly, the following steps will be taken during a Police Activity Lockdown:

  • Report to the nearest room and lock or barricade the door.
  • Turn out the lights and close any window blinds.
  • Silence your cell phones.
  • Wait for an “all clear” message.

For college and district service locations with the ability to lock outside doors quickly, the following steps will be taken during a Police Activity Lockdown:

  • The exterior doors will be locked by police officers or assigned district employees.
  • Message(s) will be sent out with information and/or instructions.
  • Signs will be posted on exterior doors advising people outside of the lockdown with a number to call for the public.
  • If you are outside the building, leave the area and wait for an “all clear” message.
  • All students and employees will remain inside the building (no standing in the doorway or going in and out).
  • Wait for an “all clear” message.
  • Incident Commander has the authority to modify the Police Activity Lockdown instructions.

Weapon at location

If you see someone with a weapon on campus or at a service location, or you are told someone has a weapon:
Dial 911 on a college or district phone. If a college/district phone is not available, use any available phone, dial District Central Dispatch at 972-860-4290 and give the dispatcher the following information:

  • Location of the person with the weapon or where they were last seen
  • The name of the person suspected to have the weapon (if known)
  • A brief description of the person such as clothing, race, sex, etc.
  • The weapon type (pistol, rifle, knife, shotgun, etc.)

Evacuate the area and advise others to do the same. Under no circumstance should you approach the person and inquire about the weapon.

Terrorism

External threats

Threats of terror make it impossible to have a planned response. General guidelines in all such situations follow:

  • Maintain personal situation awareness
    • Check weather information before leaving home each day
    • Check news before leaving home each day
    • Be alert to unusual activities or persons in areas you frequent and communicate any concerns to Campus Police by dialing 911 from a campus phone or 972-860-4290 from a cell phone
  • Work with others to remain calm and prepare to follow directions
  • Listen to official information sources on campus and through the media
  • Stay away from incident scenes and move a safe distance away from the area if you observe an incident in progress
  • Avoid starting rumors that may mislead others into making dangerous choices
  • If apprised of an incident or potential incident, be prepared to move quickly

 Internal threats

If you perceive individual behavior that appears threatening or that may escalate to violence, contact:

  • A Campus Police officer via Dispatch: 911 from a campus phone or 972-860-4290 from a cell phone
  • If there is immediate threat – CALL THE POLICE 972-860-4290

Medical Emergencies

Call 911 on a college or district service location phone.

If a college/district phone is not available, use any available phone, dial District Central Dispatch at 972-860-4290 and:

  • Initiate lifesaving measures if required and you are trained to do so.
  • Do not move an injured person unless there is a danger of further harm.
  • Keep the injured person warm.
  • Remain with the victim until medical assistance arrives.
  • Have a designated person meet emergency personnel when they arrive and escort them to the location.
  • Report the incident.

Medical Transportation

  • The district will not assume payment for ambulance transportation.
  • Individuals refusing transportation by ambulance are solely responsible for the decision. An individual cannot be forced to accept medical assistance.
  • Individuals refusing ambulance transportation to a medical facility will be responsible for their transportation to a medical facility: i.e., getting transportation from a friend or family member.

Note: The district is not liable for accidents or injuries involving transporting a person in a privately owned vehicle.

Reporting Safety Issues

Safety hazards including but not limited to the following should be reported to the location’s Facilities Office:

  • Trip and fall hazards
  • Fire hazards
  • Unsafe activities
  • Lights not working
  • Locks or doors not working
  • Electrical hazards
  • Parking lot hazards
  • Unsafe situations

Any injury or exposure to a hazardous substance or body fluids should be reported to the Health Center and the Human Resources Office if the person involved is a district employee.

Power Outage

​In the event of a power outage, emergency lighting will automatically be activated.

Have one person in your area contact the college or service location Facilities Office. Wait for further instructions from Facilities.

Severe Weather

There are two types of severe weather alerts:

Watch: A watch is a public notification that weather conditions exist that could lead to a warning.

Warning: A warning is an alert by the National Weather Service confirming an actual event that is occurring, giving time, location, speed and direction of movement.
If severe weather is imminent:

  • Remain calm. Do not exit the building.
  • Notify people in your area to quickly get away from the perimeter of the building and exterior glass.
  • Proceed to one of the marked Safer Zone areas (areas that most closely meet NOAA guidelines for severe weather) and close the door to prevent injury from flying debris.

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) Weather Warnings Sent to Your Smart Phone:

Students and employees who own the newer smart phones are set up to receive WEA messages (unless the person has changed the phone’s settings). These messages include severe and/or extreme weather alerts. Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency messages sent by government authorities through your mobile carrier. The weather warnings come from the National Weather Service (NWS).

If you receive a weather message telling you to “take shelter,” then do so and inform those near you. Be aware that District Central Dispatch, police officers and emergency management personnel receive warnings from the NWS roughly the same time as you receive the WEA messages. It will take a short period of time for the district to re-broadcast the message in its notification systems.

The district’s notification systems also may be affected by power outages or system failures, so always follow the instructions from a reliable source such as WEA.

Inclement Weather

In the event there is a question as to whether we will be closed due to inclement weather, the following options are available:

  • College/district websites
  • College/district social media
  • News stations
  • Signing up for the district’s notification services in your eConnect account

Hazardous spills

​Do not attempt to remove and/or clean up a hazardous spill.

Hazardous materials can include but are not limited to:

  • Cleaners
  • Ammonia products
  • Solvents
  • Paint products
  • Chemicals
  • Blood/body fluids

Call the campus or location’s Facilities Office.

Hazardous Spills outside the Building

Follow instructions from authorities and/or College Emergency Response Team (CERT) members as to whether to evacuate or shelter-in-place. If you are instructed to remain in the building, proceed to one of the marked, designated Tornado Safer Zone areas.

Chemical, Biological, or Radiological Incident

In the case of a chemical, biological or radiological incident, follow the instruction of police officers, first responders and/or CERT members. In most cases, staying inside a building is your best protection unless instructed to do otherwise by authorities. 

DCCCD Police Department will immediately notify the campus community upon the confirmation the incident is a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff occurring on the campus. As per the requirements of the law, Campus Police and the Marketing and Creative Services Office will, without delay,  and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless issuing a notification will, in the judgment of the first responders (including, but not limited to: campus police, local police departments) compromise the efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate emergency.

The various systems the institution has in place for communicating information quickly to the college community include the following.

  • Telephone Public Address system
  • Text messages to subscribed cell phones
  • Net Support - Written messages sent to all computer monitors at the college
  • Officers public contact
  • College social media sites
  • Digital signage around the campus
  • College website
  • Place fliers on entry doors to buildings

The Marketing and Creative Services Office will post updates during a critical incident on the DCCCD website at www.dcccd.edu.

Emergency Drills

Scheduled and non-scheduled drills are planned by the Emergency Operations Coordinator for the spring and fall semesters for the college. Evacuation routes are posted in various spots in each building.

Once the list of drill dates are approved, the dates are posted online and in the Student Life calendar to ensure students and employees are aware when scheduled drills are taking place.

Notifications that drill dates are approaching are sent by college email blast, Twitter, Facebook, digital signage and marquee and are listed on the college’s events calendar online. Immediately prior to the drill beginning, emails are sent to all college employees along with PA phone announcements to alert people on the college campus. The marquee light board will post the message when the drill starts and is over. Once the drill is over the ICS staff will follow up in a meeting to discuss the results of the drill. A drill assessment form is filled out and saved as proof of documentation.

In conjunction with other emergency agencies, the Campus conducts emergency response drills and exercises each year, such as table top exercises, field exercises, and tests of the emergency notification systems on campus. These tests, which may be announced or unannounced, are designed to assess and evaluate the emergency plans and capabilities of the institution. Each test is documented and includes a description of the exercise, the date and time of the exercise, and whether it was announced or unannounced.

The Campus publicizes a summary of the emergency response and evacuation procedures via email at least once each year in conjunction with a test (exercise and drill) that meets all of the requirements of the Higher Education Opportunity Act.

DCCCD campuses do not have residence halls and therefore is not required to do annual fire drills. We do, however, conduct building evacuation drills. The purpose of evacuation drills is to prepare building occupants for an organized evacuation in case a fire or other emergency. At DCCCD evacuation drills are used as a way to educate and train occupants on fire safety issues specific to their building. During, the drill, occupants “practice” drill procedures and familiarize themselves with the location of exits and the sound of the fire alarm.

General Evacuation Procedures

At the sound of a fire alarm or if you are instructed to evacuate, leave your work area immediately and proceed to the nearest exit, and leave the building. If you are the first to recognize a fire station, activate the alarm, evacuate to a safe location using the nearest exit, and notify dispatch (972-860-4290) or dial 911.

  • Remain calm
  • Do not use elevators, use the stairs
  • Assist the physically impaired. If he/she is unable to exit without using an elevator, secure a safe location near a stairwell, and immediately inform dispatch or the responding fire department of the individual’s location.
  • Proceed to a clear area at least 150 feet from the building. Keep all walkways clear for emergency vehicles.
  • Make sure all personnel are out of the building.
  • Do not re-enter the building.

Shelter in Place Procedures

If an incident occurs and the buildings or areas around you become unstable, or if the air  outdoors becomes dangerous due to toxic or irritating substances, it is usually safer to stay indoors, because leaving the area may expose you to that danger. “Shelter in Place” means to make a shelter of the building that you are in, and with a few adjustments this location can be made even safer and more comfortable until it is safe to go outside. Once the Police or fire department personnel is on scene, follow their directions.

Shelter in place notification

A shelter in place notification may come from several sources, dispatch, Campus employees, local PD, or other authorities utilizing the campus emergency communications tools.

How to “Shelter in Place”

No matter where you are, the basic steps of shelter in place will generally remain the same. Follow these steps, unless instructed otherwise by local emergency personnel:

  • If you are inside, stay where you are. Collect any emergency shelter in place supplies and a telephone to be used in case of emergency. If you are outdoors, proceed into the closest building quickly or follow instructions from emergency personnel on the scene.
  • Locate a room to shelter inside. It should be:
    • an interior room;
    • above ground level; and
    • without windows or with the least number of windows. If there is a large group of people inside a particular building, several rooms maybe necessary.
  • Shut and lock all windows (tighter seal) and close exteriors doors.
  • Turn off air conditioners, heaters, and fans.
  • Close vents to ventilation system as you can. (Campus staff will turn off the ventilation as quickly as possible).
  • Make a list of the people with you and ask someone (hall staff, faculty, or other staff) to call the list in to dispatch so they know where you are sheltering. If only students are present, one of the students should call in the list.
  • Turn on a radio or TV and listen for further instructions.
  • Make yourself comfortable.

IV. OVERVIEW OF CAMPUS CRIME PROCESS

Daily Crime Log

Consistent with the Clery Act requirements, DCCCD Police Departments maintain a Daily Crime Log that records, listed by the date the incident was reported, all crimes and other serious incidents that occur:

  • On any campus
  • In a non-campus building or property owned or operated by the College or its students in a reasonably contiguous geographic area

Clery Geographic Areas

Pursuant to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Crime Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC 1092) (“Clery Act”), each Campus must identify the geographic territories in or on which the occurrence of Clery Act crimes will trigger responsibilities under the Clery Act.  These include:

  • Buildings and property that are part of the campus,
  • Public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus, and
  • Non-campus buildings or property (collectively referred to as “Clery Act Geography”). The definitions for these geographic categories are Clery Act specific and are the same for every institution regardless of its physical size or configuration.

On Campus Property (OC) - Any building or property owned or controlled by a school within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the school in direct support of or in a manner related to its educational purposes and, property within the same reasonably contiguous area that is owned by the school but controlled by another person, frequently used by students, and supports the school’s purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).

Public Property (PP) - All public property including: thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking facilities within the same campus or immediately adjacent to and easily accessible from the campus.  This would not include, for example, highways that are adjacent to the campus, but that are separated from the campus by a fence or other man-made barrier.  A school may use a map to visually illustrate the areas included in the definition of its campus.

Non-Campus Building or Property (NCP) – Any building or property owned or controlled by the school, that is not within the same reasonable contiguous area, is used in direct support of or in relation to the school’s educational purpose and is frequently used by the students.

V. REPORTING A CRIME

Incident Reporting and Response

Any criminal offense, suspected criminal activity, or other emergency on campus should be reported directly to the DCCCD Police Department by telephone, in person, or by dialing (972) 860-4290 from any campus phone or by using one of the emergency telephones located throughout our campuses. Campus elevators are also equipped with emergency phones. Upon receipt of the call, the Emergency Services Division personnel can supply information or dispatch officers as necessary. 

DCCCD campuses witness a crime or emergency, promptly report it to the DCCCD Police Department and be prepared to answer questions as accurately as you can.   The subsequent investigation can only be as thorough as the information received. If you are the victim of a crime or you have seen or received information of criminal activity or other emergency, please contact the DCCCD Police Department immediately. Police personnel in vehicles, on foot or on bicycles are eager to be of assistance and may be contacted directly. The DCCCD Police Department will respond as quickly and safely as possible to any request for assistance, whether it is an emergency or not. Response time is based on current activity and severity of the call.

Crimes in progress, alarms, traffic accidents with injuries and medical assists have a higher priority than other types of calls.  We cannot overemphasize the importance of prompt and accurate crime reports, no matter when it occurs. If a crime is not promptly reported, evidence can be destroyed or the potential to apprehend the suspect is lost. Without accurate reports, leads could be missed and the investigation headed in the wrong direction. If you witness a crime or emergency, promptly report it to the DCCCD Police Department and be prepared to answer questions as accurately as you can.   The subsequent investigation can only be as thorough as the information received. If you are the victim of a crime or you have seen or received information of criminal activity or other emergency, please contact the DCCCD Police Department immediately. 

Reporting Criminal Offenses to Campus Police

DCCCD Police Department strongly encourages all members of its community to report the violation of any criminal offense occurring on campus to the DCCCD Police Department. The victim has the choice whether or not to make such a report and victims have the right to decline involvement with the police. A victim may request assistance in notifying local law enforcement in the event the offense occurred off campus. The DCCCD Police Department can be contacted by phone at 972-860-4290, in person or utilizing the emergency phones located inside campus buildings and in the parking areas.

Please provide as much information as possible such as:

  • Your name and the location from which you are calling from.
  • Describe what has happened or the nature of your call.
  • Give detailed information on any suspect(s) involved.
  • Whether an ambulance is needed for any possible injuries.
  • You may also report knowledge you have of any theft, vandalism, threats, suspicious activity, disruptive students, verbal abuse, drug activity, or traffic accidents/violations/speeding.
  • Security issues may also be reported such as trip hazards, electrical hazards, inoperative doors/outdoor lighting, parking hazards, locked/malfunctioning doors, or fire hazards.
  • Be prepared to answer specific questions the dispatcher may ask in order to obtain necessary information relevant to your call for service.

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to report any problems with the campus environment directly to the DCCCD Police, but you may also report criminal offenses to designated campus officials (including but not limited to directors, deans, and department heads) or to other local law enforcement agencies.

Crimes can be reported anonymously by calling Dallas Crime Stoppers at (214) 373-8477.  The DCCCD Police Department, Counseling and Psychological Services, and the Department of Student Affairs at each campus will accept confidential and anonymous reports of crimes for inclusion in the annual statistical report.  Although exempt from the reporting requirements of the Clery Act, pastoral and professional mental health counselors are encouraged to refer persons they are counseling to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the annual statistics especially if the incident poses a continuous threat to the campus.   It is our goal to provide assistance wherever the report is made to make sure we include the crime in our annual security report.

Voluntary Confidential Reporting

If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the Campus system or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With the victim’s permission,  an Officer can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing the victim’s identity (except to the Title IX Coordinator in the event of a reported sex offense or sexual harassment). The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with the victim’s wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to enhance the future safety of the victim and others. With this information, the Campus can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, employees and visitors; determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant; and it helps alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution. 

Notice of Penalty for false alarm or report

As of Sept. 1, 2013, an offense committed under Section 42.06, of the Texas Penal Code, making a False Alarm or Report, a person commits an offense if he knowingly initiates, communicates or circulates a report of a present, past, or future bombing, fire, offense or other emergency that he knows is false or baseless and that would ordinarily:

  1. cause action by an official or volunteer agency organized to deal with emergencies;
  2. place a person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury; or
  3. prevent or interrupt the occupation of a building, room, place of assembly, place to which the public has access, or aircraft, automobile, or other mode of conveyance.  
    An offense under this section is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by: a fine not to exceed $4,000; confinement in jail for a term not to exceed one year; or both such fine and confinement.

If the false report is of an emergency involving a public or private institution of higher education or involving a public primary or secondary school, public communications, public transportation, public water, gas or power supply or other public service, the offense is a state jail felony. An individual adjudged guilty of a state jail felony shall be punished by confinement in a state jail for any term of not more than two years or less than 180 days. In addition to confinement, an individual adjudged guilty of a state jail felony may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000.

This notification is in compliance with Section 51.219, Texas Education Code, and Notification of Penalty for False Alarm or Report.

Procedures for reporting Sexual assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking

The Campus has procedures in place that serve to be sensitive to victims who report sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, including informing individuals about their right to file criminal charges as well as the availability of counseling, health, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance and other services on and/or off campus as well as additional remedies to prevent contact between a complainant and an accused party. Examples are housing, academic, protective orders, transportation and working accommodations, if reasonably available. The Campus will make such accommodations, if the victim requests them and if they are reasonable available, regardless of whether the victim chooses to report the crime to the Campus Police or local law enforcement. If you do not want to speak to the DCCCD Police and have been the victim of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, you should report the incident promptly to a Title IX Coordinator.

If a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking is reported to the Campus Police, below are the procedures that the Campus will follow:

Sexual Assault:

  • Depending on when reported (immediate vs delayed report), institution will provide complainant with access to medical care
  • DCCCD PD will assess immediate safety needs of complainant
  • DCCCD PD will assist complainant with contacting local police if complainant requests and provide the complainant with contact information for local police department
  • DCCCD PD will provide complainant with referrals to on and off campus mental health providers
  • DCCCD PD will assess need to implement interim or long-term protective measures, if appropriate
  • DCCCD PD will provide a “No trespass” directive to accused party if deemed appropriate
  • DCCCD PD will provide written instructions on how to apply for a Protective Order
  • DCCCD PD will provide a copy of the policy applicable to Sexual Assault to the complainant and inform the complainant regarding timeframes for inquiry, investigation and resolution
  • DCCCD PD will inform the complainant of the outcome of the investigation, whether or not the accused will be administratively charged and what the outcome of the hearing
  • DCCCD PD will enforce the anti-retaliation policy and take immediate and separate action against parties that retaliate against a person for complaining of sex-based discrimination or assisting in the investigation

Stalking:

  • DCCCD PD will assess immediate safety needs of complainant
  • DCCCD PD will assist complainant with contacting local police if complainant requests and provide the complainant with contact information for local police department
  • DCCCD PD will provide written instructions on how to apply for a Protective Order
  • DCCCD PD will provide written information to complainant on how to preserve evidence
  • DCCCD PD will assess need to implement interim or long-term protective measures to protect the complainant, if appropriate
  • DCCCD PD will provide the victim with written explanation of the victim’s rights and options
  • DCCCD PD will provide a “No trespass” directive to accused party if deemed appropriate

Dating Violence:

  • DCCCD PD will assess immediate safety needs of complainant
  • DCCCD PD will assist complainant with contacting local police if complainant requests and provide the complainant with contact information for local police department
  • DCCCD PD will provide written instructions on how to apply for a Protective Order
  • DCCCD PD will provide written information to complainant on how to preserve evidence
  • DCCCD PD will assess need to implement interim or long-term protective measures to protect the complainant, if appropriate
  • DCCCD PD will provide the victim with written explanation of the victim’s rights and options
  • DCCCD PD will provide a “No trespass” directive to accused party if deemed appropriate

Domestic Violence:

  • DCCCD PD will assess immediate safety needs of complainant
  • DCCCD PD will assist complainant with contacting local police if complainant requests and provide the complainant with contact information for local police department
  • DCCCD PD will provide written instructions on how to apply for a Protective Order
  • DCCCD PD will provide written information to complainant on how to preserve evidence
  • DCCCD PD will assess need to implement interim or long-term protective measures to protect the complainant, if appropriate
  • DCCCD PD will provide the victim with written explanation of the victim’s rights and options
  • DCCCD PD will provide a “No trespass” directive to accused party if deemed appropriate

Preservation of evidence is important and may be collected even if you chose not to make a report to law enforcement. It is important that a victim of sexual assault not bathe, douche, smoke, change clothing or clean the bed/linen area where they were assaulted, if the offense occurred within the past 96 hours, so that evidence may be preserved which may assist in proving the alleged criminal offense has occurred or is occurring. This may be helpful in obtaining a protection order or criminal prosecution, if the victim choses to file an offense report or for a protection order. In circumstances of sexual assault, if victims do not opt for forensic evidence collection, health care providers can still treat injuries and take steps to address concerns of pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted disease. 

Victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and dating violence are encouraged to also preserve evidence by saving text messages, instant messages, social networking pages, other communications, and keeping pictures, logs or other copies of documents, which would be useful to the police or a Title IX hearing board.
As time passes, evidence may dissipate or become lost or unavailable, thereby making investigation, possible prosecution, disciplinary proceedings, or obtaining protection from abuse orders related to the incident more difficult. If a victim chooses not to make a complaint regarding an incident, he or she nevertheless should consider speaking with the DCCCD Police or other law enforcement to preserve evidence in the event that the victim changes her/his mind at a later date.

Instances where a sexual assault has occurred, the victim is strongly encouraged to report the incident. Care should be taken to preserve all items of potential evidentiary value, including clothing, bedding, and any items that may have been touched by the assailant and/or used in the assault. 

The victim is encouraged to contact one of the authorized college offices whether the sexual offense, domestic or dating violence, hate crime or stalking took place on campus or off campus. The victim will be given specific information as to how to go about bringing formal charges against the accused. College personnel will provide the victim with assistance in contacting the appropriate authorities, if needed. The procedures for an on-campus disciplinary action would be the same as those outlined in the Student Code of Conduct for any alleged violation. Students are hereby advised that they have the options of pursuing their allegations through either or both the Student Code of Conduct and/or the Criminal Justice system. Ultimately it is the student's option as to whether or not he/she wishes to pursue allegations through either or both authorities. In addition to criminal prosecution, the college may pose sanctions on the violator under the Student Code of Conduct to protect the victim and the college community.

Victim’s Bill of Rights

Victims of sexual assault will have the right to the following:

Reasonable changes to the academic schedule. Referrals to counseling, assistance in notifying law enforcement. Same opportunity as accused to have others present at disciplinary hearing. Unconditional written notification of outcomes of hearing, sanctions and terms of sanctions in place. Opportunities and assistance to speak (or choose not to speak) to anyone regarding the outcome. Name and identifying information kept confidential (FERPA).

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a landmark piece of legislation that sought to improve criminal justice and community-based responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking in the United States. The passage of VAWA in 1994 and its reauthorization in 2000, 2005 and 2013, has changed the landscape for victims who once suffered in silence. Victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking have been able to access services, and a new generation of families and justice system professionals has come to understand that domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking are crimes that our society will not tolerate.

Under VAWA, colleges are required to:

  • Report domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, beyond crime categories the Clery Act already mandates;
  • Adopt certain student discipline procedures, such as for notifying purported victims of  their rights; and
  • Adopt certain institutional policies to address and prevent campus sexual violence, such as to train in particular respects pertinent institutional personnel

Hate Crime Reporting

Gender: A preformed negative opinion or attitude towards a person or group of persons based on their actual or perceived gender (e.g., male or female).

Gender Identity: A preformed negative opinion or attitude toward a person or a group of persons based on their actual or perceived gender identity, (e.g., bias against transgender or gender nonconforming individuals).

Ethnicity: A preformed negative opinion or attitude toward a group of persons whose members identify with each other, through a common heritage, often consisting of a common language, common culture (often including a shared religion) and/or ideology that stresses common ancestry (e.g., Middle Eastern, Hispanics).

National Origin: A preformed negative opinion or attitude toward a person or a group of persons based on their actual or perceived country of birth.

Title IX Policy

In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 51.9363 of the Texas Education Code, the College District prohibits sexual misconduct in all of its programs and activities, including in its dual credit, early college high school, and charter high school programs. Sexual Misconduct is defined as any act of sex/gender-based discrimination or harassment, sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual exploitation, relationship violence, sex/gender-based stalking, and any other conduct that threatens the health and safety of any person on the basis of actual, expressed or perceived gender identity.

The College District’s sexual misconduct policy applies to any instance in which a student or employee is alleged to have engaged in sexual misconduct against any person or believes he or she has been subjected to sexual misconduct, regardless of sex, gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity.  The College District will respond to any complaint of sexual misconduct, including conduct alleged to have occurred during breaks, leaves of absence or periods of dismissal, whether on or off College District property or premises.
A person who is found to have violated the College District sexual misconduct policy shall be subject to all applicable College District disciplinary sanctions as outlined in the College District Board Policy Manual. Violations of the sexual misconduct policy that are also violations of law may also be subject to sanctions by civil and criminal authorities. College District disciplinary action with respect to any act of sexual misconduct on the part of a student or employee shall proceed during the pendency of civil and/or criminal proceedings and shall not be subject to challenge on the ground that civil and/or criminal charges involving the same incident have been filed, dismissed or reduced. For more information on the College District’s sexual misconduct policy, including reporting procedures, please see the College District Board Policy Manual.

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (gender) in education programs of activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance.  Sexual Harassment of students, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.  Title IX requires the DCCCD Colleges to take immediate action to eliminate harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects.  The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for administrative investigation of claims of sexual harassment and sexual violence, and ensuring there are appropriate grievance procedures for prompt and equitable resolution of student sex discrimination complaints.  Each DCCCD College’s Title IX investigation is different from a law enforcement investigation, and a law enforcement investigation does not relieve the DCCCD Colleges of its independent Title IX obligation to investigate conduct.
When cases involving domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking are reported and a formal conduct process is initiated, the college will provide a prompt, fair and impartial process from the initial investigation to the final resolution. Reports will be investigated (if applicable) and managed by professional staff or college conduct committee members who have been trained annually on issues related to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking and victimization, and how to conduct an investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of victims and promotes accountability.

Usually, the resolution of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking complaints are completed within 60 days of the report. However, each proceeding allows for extensions of timeframes for good cause with written notice to the accuser and the accused of the delay and the reason for the delay. In all instances, the process will be conducted in a manner that is consistent with the campus policy and that is transparent to the accuser and the accused. The accuser and the accused will have timely notice for meetings at which the accuser or accused or both may be present.

Upon receipt of a report of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, DCCCD PD will provide written notification to students and employees about existing assistance with and/or information about obtaining resources and services including counseling, health, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance, student financial aid and assistance in notifying appropriate local enforcement.

Student Code of Conduct

The Dallas County Community College District exists to serve students and our community stakeholders. Students are important members of the College District environment. Each college of the College District supports a positive educational environment designed to encourage student completion. In order to ensure the protection of student rights and the health and safety of the college community, as well as to support the efficient operation of college programs and services, the College District has established a Student Code of Conduct.
The purpose of policies about student conduct and discipline is to provide guidelines for the educational environment of the College District. The College District views students in a holistic manner, encouraging and inviting them to learn and grow independently. Such an environment presupposes both rights and responsibilities. Every student should know his or her responsibility as a member of DCCCD. As a member of the Dallas County Community College District, a student is free to take advantage of all of the educational opportunities available and to participate in all extracurricular activities sponsored by the College District for which the student is eligible.

Members of the student body enjoy the same rights and privileges guaranteed to them as citizens of the United States and as residents of the state of Texas. They enjoy the same freedoms of speech and peaceable assembly as all citizens. However, by virtue of their membership in the college community, students are under certain legal obligations in the exercise of those freedoms. Each student and student organization shall be charged with notice and knowledge of the contents and provisions of the College District’s policies, procedures, and regulations concerning student conduct, and shall be expected to abide by those policies, procedures, and regulations. In cases of noncompliance with the Student Code of Conduct, the college may impose discipline that is consistent with the impact of the offense on the College District community.

The College District reserves the right to pursue criminal and/or civil action where warranted. Unfamiliarity with these policies and procedures shall not excuse a violation of the Student Code of Conduct. All students shall obey the law, show respect for properly constituted authority, and observe correct standards of conduct. In addition to activities prohibited by law or by other published College District regulations and policies.

Active Bystander

Bystanders play a critical role in the prevention of sexual and relationship violence. They are “individuals who observe violence or witness the conditions that perpetuate violence. They are not directly involved but have the choice to intervene, speak up, or do something about it.” We want to promote a culture of community accountability where bystanders are actively engaged in the prevention of violence without causing further harm. We may not always know what to do even if we want to help. If you or someone else is in immediate danger, dial 911. This could be when a person is yelling at or being physically abusive towards another and it is not safe for you to interrupt.

Watch out for your friends and fellow students/employees. If you see someone who looks like they could be in trouble or need help, ask if they are ok. Confront people who seclude, hit on, try to make out with, or have sex with people who are incapacitated. Speak up when someone discusses plans to take sexual advantage of another person. Believe someone who discloses sexual assault, abusive behavior, or experience with stalking. Refer people to on or off campus resources listed in this document for support in health, counseling, or with legal assistance.

Crime Prevention and Security Awareness Programs

One of the essential ingredients of any successful crime prevention program is an informed public. It is the intent of the DCCCD Police Department to inform students of good crime prevention and security awareness practices. Programs are available to members of the college community on the topics of crime prevention and drug and alcohol abuse. Information on Drug and Alcohol Abuse Education may also be obtained through the National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information at 1-800-729-6686.

DCCCD Police Departments play a vital role in the students’ learning at all DCCCD Campuses utilizing the Community Policing philosophy. The focus of community-oriented policing is not simply on responding to crime, but on preventing crime and resolving community problems. The philosophy grows from the belief that the police and the community must work together as partners to solve the contemporary challenges faced in today’s society.

Officers work closely with other organizations and community groups to educate community members about potential hazards they may encounter and how to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of crime, to identify the problems, concerns and fear of community members, to identify and eliminate hazards that may promote crime or disorder, and to improve the overall quality of life in the community.

DCCCD Police Departments have developed an annual educational campaign consisting of presentations that include distribution of educational materials to new students; participating in and presenting information and materials during new employee orientation; presenting programs throughout the year on at least a quarterly basis, including sessions such as:

Notification to victims of Crimes of Violence

DCCCD Police Department will, upon written request, disclose to the alleged victim of a crime of violence, or a non-forcible sex offense, the report on the results of any disciplinary proceeding conducted by such institution against a student who is the alleged perpetrator of such crime or offense. If the alleged victim is deceased as the result of such crime or offense, the next of kin of such victim shall be treated as the alleged victim for purposes of this paragraph.

Sex Offender Registration

The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, enacted on Oct. 28, 2000, requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student.  

Confidentiality

To the greatest extent possible, the DCCCD College District shall respect the privacy of the complainant, persons against whom a report is filed and witnesses. Limited disclosures may be necessary in order to conduct a thorough investigation and comply with applicable law. DCCCD Police Department will protect the identity of persons who report having been victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking to the fullest extent of the law. Victims may request that directory information on file be removed from public sources by request from the Admissions and Records office.

Different people on campus have different reporting responsibilities and different abilities to maintain your confidentiality, depending on their roles at the College. When consulting campus resources, victims should be aware of confidentiality and mandatory reporting, in order to make informed choices. On campus, some resources may maintain your complete confidentiality, offering you options and advice without any obligation to tell anyone, unless you want them to. Other resources are expressly there for you to report crimes and policy violations, and they will take action when you report your victimization to them.

Additionally, personal identifiable information about the victim will be treated as confidential and only shared with persons with a specific need to know who are investigating/adjudicating the complaint or delivering resources or support services to the complainant. The College does not publish the name of crime victims nor house identifiable information regarding victims in the campus police department’s Daily Crime Log or online. Furthermore, if a Timely Warning Notice is issued on the basis of a report of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking, the name of the victim and other personally identifiable information about the victim will be withheld.

Pastoral and Professional Counselors

Campus “Pastoral Counselors” and “Professional Counselors”, when acting as such, are not considered to be a campus security authority (CSA) for Clery Act purposes and are not required to report crimes for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crimes statistics. As a matter of policy, the professional counselors at DCCCD are encouraged, if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary confidential basis.

  • Pastoral Counselor – an employee of an institution, who is associated with a religious order or denomination, recognized by that religious order or denomination as someone who provides confidential counseling and who is functioning within the scope of that recognition as a pastoral counselor.
  • Professional Counselor – an employee of an institution whose official responsibilities include providing psychological counseling to members of the institution’s community, and who is functioning within the scope of his or her license or certification.

The DCCCD Police Department encourages pastoral and professional counselors, if and when they deem appropriate, to inform the persons they are counseling to voluntarily report the incident to the DCCCD Police Department on a confidential basis for inclusion of the annual disclosure of crime statistics.

Reports of Sexual violence and other violations that may be sex or gender based will be reported to the Title IX Coordinator and cannot be held in confidence.

Risk Reduction

With no intent to victim blame and recognizing that only abusers are responsible for their abuse, the following are some strategies to reduce one’s risk of sexual assault or harassment (taken from Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, www.rainn.org).

  • Be aware of your surroundings. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you find a way to get out of a bad situation.
  • Try to avoid isolated areas. It is more difficult to get help if no one is around.
  • Walk with purpose. Even if you don’t know where you are going, act like you do.
  • Trust your instincts. If a situation or location feels unsafe or uncomfortable, it probably isn’t the best place to be.
  • Try not to load yourself down with packages or bags as this can make you appear more vulnerable.
  • Make sure your cell phone is with you and charged.
  • Don’t allow yourself to be isolated with someone you don’t trust or someone you don’t know.
  • Avoid putting music headphones in both ears so that you can be more aware of your surroundings, especially if you are walking alone.
  • When you go to a social gathering, go with a group of friends. Arrive together, check in with each other throughout the evening, and leave together. Knowing where you are and who is around you may help you find a way out of a bad situation.
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe in any situation, go with your gut. If you see something suspicious, contact law enforcement immediately.
  • Don’t leave your drink unattended while talking, dancing, using the restroom, or making a phone call. If you have left your drink alone, get a new one.
  • Don’t accept drinks from people you don’t know or trust. If you choose to accept a drink, go with the person to the bar to order it, watch it being poured, and carry it yourself. At parties, don’t drink from the punch bowls or other large, common open containers.
  • Watch out for your friends. If a friend seems intoxicated, get him/her to a safe place immediately.
  • If you suspect you or a friend has been drugged, contact law enforcement immediately. Be explicit with doctors so they can give you the correct tests.
  • If you need to get out of an uncomfortable or scary situation here are some things you can try:
    • Remember that being in this situation is not your fault. You did not do anything wrong, it is the person who is making you uncomfortable that is to blame.
    • Be true to yourself. Don’t feel obligated to do anything you don’t want to do.
    • Have a code word with your friends or family so that if you don’t feel comfortable you can call them and communicate your discomfort without the person you are with knowing. Your friends or family can then come to get you or make up an excuse for you to leave.
    • Lie. If you don’t want to hurt the person’s feelings it is better to lie and make up a reason to leave than to stay and be uncomfortable, scared, or worse.
    • Try to think of an escape route. How would you try to get out of the room? Where are the windows and exit doors? Are there people around who might help you? Is there an emergency phone nearby?
    • If you and/or the other people have been drinking, you can say that you would rather wait until you both have your full judgment before doing anything you may regret later.

VII. ANNUAL CRIME STATISTICS

Data Collection

DCCCD Police Department collects the crime statistics disclosed in this report through a number of methods. All reports of crimes and incidents made directly to the DCCCD Police Department are entered into our records management system, ARMS-Automated Records Management System. A department administrator reviews the reports to ensure they are appropriately classified with the correct crime category. The statistics are compiled from the contents of ARMS on a monthly basis by a designee on each of the individual campuses. Prior to compiling the yearly statistical data for the Annual Security Report, all of the reports in the ARMS database are thoroughly reviewed and evaluated by at least two members of the Clery team, and crimes that fall into any of the required reporting categories which occurred within our Clery reportable geography are included in the annual statistical disclosure.

The annual disclosure of crime statistics is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our campuses and non-campus sites. A written request for statistical information is made on an annual basis, or more frequently, to Dallas Police Department, Irving Police Department, Mesquite Police Department, Farmer’s Branch Police Department, DART Police Department, Lancaster Police Department, Garland Police Department, Coppell Police Department, Richardson Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety. In addition, written requests are sent to law enforcement agencies in the cities and countries where students participate in College sponsored student trips and study abroad programs.

Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics

The DCCCD Police Department prepares this report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. This report includes statistics for the previous three years (2014, 2015, 2016)  concerning reported crimes that fall into any of the required reporting classifications that occurred on campus, in certain non-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the DCCCD and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. In addition, these statistics include persons arrested or referred for campus disciplinary action for liquor, drug, and weapons law violations as required by the Clery Act. The statistics in this report are published in accordance with the standards and guidelines used by the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook (UCR). This report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking and policies regarding alcohol, drug and weapons.

Crime Statistics for 2014-2016

This report is compiled in accordance with the Campus Security Act of 1990. It pertains to all Dallas County Community College District campuses.
