If appropriate, a Campus Security Authority may advise a victim of a crime about the availability of voluntary confidential reporting. This procedure allows a crime victim who does not want to pursue action within the college system or the criminal justice system, to remain anonymous while documenting the facts of the incident. With the victim’s permission, the Director of Campus Safety or a designee of the Campus Safety Department will prepare a report on the details of the incident without revealing the victim’s name or other identifying information. The purpose of a voluntary confidential report is to comply with the victim’s wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of the victim and others. With such information, the college can keep an accurate record 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 crimes statistics for the institution.

Make sure you are keeping your rooms locked when you are not in them. This is the only way that you can make sure that your possessions stay inside and don't walk away with someone else. Remember if it looks wrong, it probably is and you should say something.
