Policy Provisions
1.

Encouragement of Accurate and Prompt Crime Reporting


If a crime or emergency occurs on campus, call Security at 615-476-3061 along with dialing 911. Dispatchers are available at these respective telephone numbers 24 hours a day to answer your call. In response to a call, Security will take the required action, dispatching an officer or asking the victim to file

an incident report.

 

All incident reports are forwarded to the Executive Director of Facilities and Safety and to the Dean of Student’s office (when applicable) for review and potential action by the Student Conduct process. If assistance is required from local law enforcement agencies, the University will contact the appropriate unit. If a sexual assault or rape should occur, staff on the scene will offer the victim a wide variety of services. The University has a Sexual Assault Crisis protocol that includes trained members and/or agencies who are available to assist a victim 24 hours a day.

 

Crimes should be reported to campus Security 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 a local Rape Crisis Center would not be included in the University crime statistics.
