2014 Annual Security Report (Clery) **UPDATED 2/25/15**

WHAT IS THE "JEANNE CLERY" DISCLOSURE ACT?

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, codified as 20 USC 1092 (f) as a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private post-secondary educational institutions participating in federal student aid programs are subject to the act.

The law, originally enacted by Congress in 1990 as the Campus Security Act, was championed by Howard and Connie Clery after their daughter Jeanne was tragically murdered at Lehigh University in 1986. Amendments to the Act in 1998 renamed it in memory of Jeanne Clery.

The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to publish an annual report, by October 1st, which contains three years’ worth of crime statistics and certain security policy statements including the following:

  • Sexual assault policies which assure basic victims' rights
  • The law enforcement authority of campus police
  • Where students should go to report crimes

The complete text of the Clery Act is available on the Security On Campus, Inc. website at www.securityoncampus.org, as are the implementing regulations published by the U.S. Department of Education.

The California State University, Chico Police Department is responsible for gathering crime statistics and providing safety information to its constituents. Crime prevention pamphlets are available in the CSU, Chico Police Department lobby. For important safety tips, "click here".

The annual security report for California State University, Chico includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by CSU, Chico, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus.

In accordance with mandated reporting requirements, information concerning the monitoring and recording of any criminal activities in which students engaged at off-campus locations and/or within student organizations that are officially recognized by the University, or are gathered from local police agencies. These agencies include any City, County, State, or Federal agencies that may have relevant information, and their statistics are published in this disclosure.

The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, including those concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and other matters.

The CSU, Chico Police Department is aware that many crimes go unreported to law enforcement and encourages employees of CSU, Chico who have significant responsibility for students and student activities to report any crimes they become aware of to the CSU, Chico Police Department. As a reminder, a letter is sent out each spring encouraging the reporting of crimes or incidents and the submission of any data. Deans, directors and department heads, resident directors and resident advisors, faculty advisors and student academic advisors, and student activities advisors and coordinators are all included in the annual notification. Faculty (except for advisors), physicians, counselors, and clerical staff are examples of employees who are not required to report under the Clery Act. All reports to the CSU, Chico Police Department can be made confidentially and anonymously in accordance with the reporting person's wishes.

POLICY, PROCEDURES, PROGRAMS AND ASSISTANCE FOR VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, DATING VIOLENCE, AND STALKING

The CSU, Chico Police Department is committed to ensuring that students, employees, and other persons who have been sexually assaulted whether by a stranger or acquaintance are treated with sensitivity, dignity, and confidentiality and are given access to medical treatment and counseling services if they wish. Every effort is made to ensure that our campus environment promotes and assists in the prompt reporting of sexual assaults and the provision of compassionate support services for survivors.

The California State University does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, or sexual orientation in its education programs or activities. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 972, and certain other federal and state laws, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, or sexual orientation in employment, as well as all education programs and activities operated by the University (both on and off campus), and protect all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and sexual violence.

 

Sex Discrimination means an adverse action taken against an individual because of gender or sex (including sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking) as prohibited by Title IX; Title IV; VAWA/Campus SaVE Act; California Education Code § 66250 et seq.; and/or California Government Code § 11135. See also Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (Cal. Govt. Code § 12940 et seq.), and other applicable laws. Both men and women can be victims of Sex Discrimination.

Sexual Harassment, a form of Sex Discrimination, is unwelcome verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that includes, but is not limited to sexual violence, sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and indecent exposure, where:

  1. Submission to, or rejection of, the conduct is explicitly or implicitly used as the basis for any decision affecting a student’s academic status or progress, or access to benefits and services, honors, programs, or activities available at or through the University; or
  2. Such conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that its effect, whether or not intended, could be considered by a reasonable person in the shoes of the student, and is in fact considered by the student, as limiting the student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities or opportunities offered by the University; or
  3. Submission to, or rejection of, the conduct by a University employee is explicitly or implicitly used as the basis for any decision affecting a term or condition of employment, or an employment decision or action; or
  4. Such conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that its effect, whether or not intended, could be considered by a reasonable person in the shoes of the University employee or third party, and is in fact considered by the University employee or third party, as intimidating, hostile or offensive.

Sexual Harassment also includes acts of verbal, non-verbal or physical aggression, intimidation or hostility based on gender or sex-stereotyping, even if those acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature.

Sexual Violence is a form of Sexual Harassment and means physical sexual acts, such as unwelcome sexual touching, sexual assault, sexual battery, rape, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking (when based on gender or sex), perpetrated against an individual against his or her will and without consent or against an individual who is incapable of giving consent due to that individual's use of drugs or alcohol, status as a minor, or disability.   Sexual Violence may include physical force, violence, threat, or intimidation, ignoring the objections of the other person, causing the other person’s intoxication or incapacitation through the use of drugs or alcohol, or taking advantage of the other person’s incapacitation (including voluntary intoxication).

Men as well as women can be victims of these forms of Sexual Violence. Unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor (statutory rape) occurs even if the intercourse is consensual when the victim is under 18 years old, because the victim is considered incapable of giving legal consent due to age.

Sexual Assault is a form of Sexual Violence and is an attempt, coupled with the ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another because of that person’s gender or sex.

Sexual Battery is a form of Sexual Violence and is any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another because of that person’s gender or sex.

Rape is a form of Sexual Violence, and is non-consensual sexual intercourse that may also involve the use of threat of force, violence, or immediate and unlawful bodily injury or threats of future retaliation and duress. Any sexual penetration, however slight, is sufficient to constitute rape.  Sexual acts including intercourse are considered non-consensual when the person is incapable of giving consent because s/he is incapacitated from alcohol and/or drugs, is under 18 years old, or if a mental disorder or developmental or physical disability renders the person incapable of giving consent. The accused’s relationship to the person (such as family member, spouse, friend, acquaintance or stranger) is irrelevant.   (See complete definition of Consent below.)

Acquaintance Rape is a form of Sexual Violence committed by an individual known to the victim. This includes a person the victim may have just met; i.e., at a party, introduced through a friend, or on a social networking website.  (See above for definition of Rape.)

Consent means an informed, affirmative, conscious decision by each participant to engage in mutually agreed-upon sexual activity.

  • Consent must be voluntary, and given without coercion, force, threats, or intimidation. Consent requires positive cooperation in a particular sexual act, or expression of intent to engage in that sexual act through the exercise of free will.
  • Consent can be withdrawn or revoked.  Consent to one form of sexual activity (or one sexual act) does not constitute consent to other forms of sexual activity (or other sexual acts).  Consent to sexual activity given on one occasion does not constitute consent to sexual activity on another occasion. The fact that two people are or were in a dating or sexual relationship does not constitute consent to engage in sexual activity.  There must always be mutual and affirmative consent to engage in sexual activity.  Consent to a sexual act may be withdrawn or revoked at any time, including after penetration.   The victim’s request for the perpetrator to use a condom or birth control does not, in and of itself, constitute consent. Once consent is withdrawn or revoked, the sexual activity must stop immediately.
  • Consent cannot be given by a person who is incapacitated. For example, a person cannot give consent if s/he is unconscious or coming in and out of consciousness. A person is incapacitated if s/he lacks the physical and/or mental ability to make informed, rational judgments. Examples of incapacitation include unconsciousness, sleep and blackouts. Whether an intoxicated person (as a result of using alcohol or other drugs) is incapacitated depends on the extent to which the alcohol or other drugs impact the person’s decision-making capacity, awareness of consequences, and ability to make fully informed judgments.  A person with a medical or mental disability may also lack the capacity to give consent.
  • Being intoxicated by drugs or alcohol does not diminish a person’s responsibility to obtain consent from the other party before engaging in sexual activity.  Factors to be considered include whether the person knew, or whether a reasonable person in the accused’s position should have known, that the victim did not give, or revoked, consent; was incapacitated; or was otherwise incapable of giving consent.
  • Sexual intercourse with a minor is never consensual when the victim is under 18 years old, because the victim is considered incapable of giving legal consent due to age.

 

Domestic Violence is a form of Sexual Violence and is abuse committed against someone who is a current or former spouse, current or former cohabitant, someone with whom the abuser has a child, someone with whom the abuser has or had a dating or engagement relationship, or a person similarly situated under California domestic or family violence law. Cohabitant means two unrelated persons living together for a substantial period of time, resulting in some permanency of relationship.  Factors that may determine whether persons are cohabiting include, but are not limited to (1) sexual relations between the parties while sharing the same living quarters, (2) sharing of income or expenses, (3) joint use or ownership of property, (4) whether the parties hold themselves out as husband and wife, (5) the continuity of the relationship, and (6) the length of the relationship.

Dating Violence is a form of Sexual Violence, and is abuse committed by a person who is or has been in a social or dating relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim.   This may include someone the victim just met; i.e., at a party, introduced through a friend, or on a social networking website.

 

Stalking means a repeated course of conduct directed at a specific person (when based on gender or sex) that places that person in reasonable fear for his/her or others’ safety, or to suffer substantial emotional distress.

 

 

Who to Contact If You Have Complaints, Questions or Concerns

Call 9-1-1 if you are in the midst of any kind of emergency, immediate harm or threat of harm.

The University has designated a Title IX Coordinator to monitor and oversee overall compliance with laws and policies related to nondiscrimination based on sex. The campus Title IX Coordinator is available to explain and discuss: Your right to file a criminal complaint (in cases of Sexual Violence); the University’s relevant complaint process, and your right to receive assistance with that process, including the investigation process; how confidentiality is handled; available resources, both on and off campus; and other related matters.

If you have experienced Sexual Violence you are encouraged to seek immediate assistance from police and healthcare providers for your physical safety, emotional support and medical care.   The campus Title IX Coordinator is available to assist you in notifying University police, if you wish. University police can escort you to a safe place and transport you to a hospital or a sexual assault response center for a medical examination, if needed.  University police can also provide access to a confidential sexual assault advocate.   If you would prefer not to notify University or local police, you are strongly encouraged to seek assistance from the campus Title IX Coordinator who can provide you with information on your options, rights and remedies.

Sexual Violence and Confidentiality—Know Your Options

We encourage victims of Sexual Violence, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking (collectively Sexual Violence) to talk to someone about what happened – so you can get the support you need, and so the University can respond appropriately.   Whether – and the extent to which – a University employee may agree to maintain confidentiality (and not disclose information to the Title IX Coordinator) depends on the employee’s position and responsibilities at the University. This information is intended to make you aware of the various reporting and confidential disclosure options available to you – so you can make informed choices about where to turn for help. The University encourages victims to talk to someone identified in one or more of these groups.

 

As explained below, some employees are required by law to maintain near complete confidentiality; talking to them is sometimes called a “privileged communication.” Other employees may talk to a victim in confidence, and generally only report to the University that an incident occurred without revealing any personally identifying information. Finally, some employees are required to report all details of an incident (including the identities of both the victim and alleged perpetrator) to the Title IX Coordinator.  A report to these employees constitutes a report to the University, and generally creates a legal obligation for the University to investigate the incident and take appropriate steps to address the situation.

 

Privileged and Confidential Communications

 

Physicians, Psychotherapists, Professional Counselors and Clergy – Physicians, psychotherapists, professional, licensed counselors, and clergy who work or volunteer on or off campus, and who provide medical or mental health treatment or counseling (including those who act in that role under their supervision) may not report any information about an incident of Sexual Violence to anyone else at the University, including the Title IX Coordinator, without your consent. You can seek assistance and support from physicians, psychotherapists, professional, licensed counselors, and clergy without triggering a University investigation that could reveal your identity or the fact of your disclosure. However, see limited exceptions below regarding when health care practitioners must report to local law enforcement agencies.  Health care practitioners should explain these limited exceptions also, if applicable.

Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Counselors and Advocates – Sexual assault and domestic violence counselors and advocated who work or volunteer on or off campus in sexual assault centers, victim advocacy offices, women’s centers, and health centers (including all individuals who work or volunteer in these centers and offices, as well as non-professional counselors or advocates, and those who act in that role under their supervision) may talk to you without revealing any information about you or the incident of sexual violence to anyone else at the University, including the Title IX Coordinator, without your consent. You can seek assistance and support from these counselors and advocates without triggering a University investigation that could reveal your identity or that you disclosed an incident to them.  However, see limited exceptions below regarding when sexual assault and domestic violence counselors and advocates must report to local law enforcement agencies.  Counselors and advocates should explain these limited exceptions to you, if applicable.

If you speak only to a physician, professional counselor, clergy member, sexual assault counselor, domestic violence counselor or advocate, you must understand that the University will not be unable to conduct an investigation into the particular incident or pursue disciplinary action against the perpetrator, if you choose to maintain confidentiality.

 

Even so, these individuals will still assist you in receiving other necessary protection and support, such as victim advocacy, disability, medical/health or mental health services, or legal services.  They may not, however, be able to assist you with University academic support or accommodations, or changes to University-based living or working schedules, or assist with adjustments to course schedules.  Only the University and the Title IX Coordinator can assist with those matters (see below). A victim who at first requests confidentiality may later decide to file a complaint with the University or report the incident to the police, and thus have the incident fully investigated. These counselors and advocates can provide you with that assistance if you wish.  These counselors and advocates will also explain that Title IX includes protections against retaliation, and that the University will not only take steps to prevent retaliation when it knows or reasonably should know of possible retaliation, but will also take strong responsive action if it occurs.

 

EXCEPTIONS:   Under California law, any health practitioner employed in a health facility, clinic, physician’s office, or local or state public health department or clinic is required to make a report to local law enforcement if he or she provides medical services for a physical condition to a patient/victim who he or she knows or reasonably suspects is suffering from (1) a wound or physical injury inflicted by a firearm; or (2) any wound or other physical injury inflicted upon a victim where the injury is the result of assaultive or abusive conduct (including Sexual Violence, Domestic Violence and Dating Violence). This exception does not apply to sexual assault and domestic violence counselors and advocates. Health care practitioners should explain this limited exception to you, if applicable.

Additionally, under California law, all professionals described above (physicians, psychotherapists, professional counselors, clergy, and sexual assault and domestic violence counselors and advocates) are mandatory child abuse and neglect reporters, and are required to report incidents involving victims under 18 years of age to local law enforcement.   These professionals will explain this limited exception to you, if applicable.

Finally, some or all of these professionals may also have reporting obligations under California law to (1) local law enforcement in cases involving threats of immediate or imminent harm to self or others where disclosure of the information is necessary to prevent the threatened danger; or (2) the court if compelled by court order or subpoena in a criminal proceeding related to the Sexual Violence incident.   If applicable, these professionals will explain this limited exception to you.

 

Reporting to University or Local Police

 

If you report to local or University Police about Sexual Violence, the police are required to notify you that your name will become a matter of public record unless confidentiality is requested. If you request that your identity be kept confidential, your name will not become a matter of public record and the police will not report your identity to anyone else at the University, including the Title IX Coordinator. University Police will, however, report the facts of the incident itself to the Title IX Coordinator being sure not to reveal to the Title IX Coordinator your name/identity, or compromise their own criminal investigation.

The University is required by the federal Clery Act to report certain types of crimes (including certain sex offenses) in statistical reports. However, while the University will report the type of incident in the annual crime statistics report known as the Annual Security Report, your name/identity will not be revealed.

Reporting to the Title IX Coordinator and Other University Employees

 

Most University employees have a duty to report incidents of Sexual Violence when they are on notice of it. When you tell the Title IX Coordinator or another University employee about a Sexual Violence incident, you have the right to expect the University to take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate what happened and to resolve the matter promptly and equitably. In all cases, the University strongly encourages victims to report Sexual Violence directly to the Title IX Coordinator.

 

As detailed above in the Privileged and Confidential Communications section, all University employees except physicians, licensed counselors, and sexual assault counselors and advocates, must report to the Title IX Coordinator all relevant details about any Sexual Violence incidents of which they become aware.  The University will need to determine what happened – and will need to know the names of the victim(s) and the perpetrator(s), any witnesses, and any other relevant facts, including the date, time and specific location of the incident.

 

To the extent possible, information reported to the Title IX Coordinator or other University employees will be shared only with individuals responsible for handling the University’s response to the incident.  The University will protect the privacy of individuals involved in a Sexual Violence incident except as otherwise required by law or University policy. A Sexual Violence report may result in the gathering of extremely sensitive information about individuals in the campus community.  While such information is considered confidential, University policy regarding access to public records and disclosure of personal information may require disclosure of certain information concerning a report of Sexual Violence.  In such cases, efforts will be made to redact the records, as appropriate, in order to protect the victim’s identity and privacy and the privacy of other involved individuals.

 

If you request of the Title IX Coordinator or another University employee that your identity remain completely confidential, the Title IX Coordinator will explain that the University cannot always honor that request and guarantee complete confidentiality.  If you wish to remain confidential, or request that no investigation be conducted, or disciplinary action taken, the University must weigh that request against the University’s obligation to provide a safe, non-discriminatory environment for all students, employees and third parties, including you. Under those circumstances, the Title IX Coordinator will determine whether your request for complete confidentiality and/or no investigation can be honored under the facts and circumstances of the particular case, including whether the University has a legal obligation to report the incident, conduct an investigation or take other appropriate steps. Without information about your identity, the University’s ability to meaningfully investigate the incident and pursue disciplinary action against the perpetrator may be severely limited.

 

The Title IX Coordinator will inform you prior to starting an investigation and will, to the extent possible, only share information with people responsible for handling the University’s response.

 

The Title IX Coordinator will remain mindful of your well-being, and will take ongoing steps to protect you from retaliation or harm, and work with you to create a safety plan. Retaliation against you, whether by students, or employees, will not be tolerated. The University and Title IX Coordinator will also:

 

  • Provide interim remedies requested by you, if they are reasonably available, regardless of whether you choose to report Sexual Violence to campus or local police;
  • Assist you in accessing other available victim advocacy, academic support, counseling, disability, medical/health or mental health services, and legal assistance both on and off campus;
  • Provide other security and support, which could include issuing a no-contact order, helping arrange a change of campus-based living or working arrangements or course schedules (including for the perpetrator pending the outcome of the investigation) or adjustments for assignments, tests, or work duties; and
  • Inform you of your right to report a crime to University or local police – and provide you with assistance if you wish to do so.

 

The University will not require you to participate in any investigation or disciplinary proceeding if you do not wish to participate.

 

The University will not generally notify parents or legal guardians of your report of Sexual Violence unless you are under the age of 18 or you provide the University with written permission to do so.

 

Under California law, and pursuant to University policy, all University employees, including the Title IX Coordinator, are mandatory child abuse and neglect reporters and should explain to victims less than 18 years of age that they are required to report the Sexual Violence incident to the police.  However, the identity of the person who reports and the report itself are confidential and disclosed only among appropriate agencies.

 

Because the University is under a continuing legal obligation to address the issue of Sexual Violence campus-wide, reports of Sexual Violence (including non-identifying reports) may also prompt the University to consider broader remedial action – such as increased monitoring, supervision or security at locations where the reported incident occurred; increased education, training and prevention efforts, including to targeted population groups; conducting climate assessments/victimization surveys; and/or revision of policies and practices.

NOTE: If the University determines that the perpetrator poses a serious and immediate threat to the campus community, a designated Campus Security Authority under the Clery Act may be called upon to issue a timely warning to the community.  Any such warning will not include any information that identifies the victim.

Legal Options

Any person who has been sexually assaulted has several legal options including criminal prosecution against the assailant, and/or civil action against the assailant, and/or the university disciplinary procedure if the assailant is an employee or student.

Criminal Prosecution

Notification to the police agency having jurisdiction over the location where the crime or attempted crime occurred initiates the process of criminal prosecution. For sexual assaults occurring off campus, the CSU, Chico Police Department can facilitate contact with appropriate agencies or provide contact information for them. Trained police officers will then facilitate medical and counseling services and referrals, collect evidence, and gather information about the crime and the assailant(s). The survivor will be interviewed at a location of his/her choice and will be allowed or offered an advocate(s) to accompany him/her during all aspects of the investigation.

The protection of the survivor's name and any identifying information will be of the highest priority. His/her written consent is required under California law before this information can be disclosed. The decision to prosecute does not necessarily have to be made during initial contact with officers, and that decision determines the officers' subsequent investigation protocol. Officers have legal authority to make an arrest, as appropriate, and to forward the case to the Office of the District Attorney for criminal prosecution.

Civil Action

Survivors can consult an attorney regarding civil action for damages against the assailant. The purpose of a civil suit is to financially compensate the survivor for the crime. Civil action can be brought against the assailant even if the survivor decides not to criminally prosecute.

University Disciplinary Procedure

If the assailant is a student, regardless of criminal or civil action, campus administrative action may be initiated through the Office of Student Judicial Affairs, A student charged with sexual assault may be sanctioned by the University. Sanctions include, but are not limited to, probation, counseling, suspension, and expulsion.

If the assailant is a faculty or staff member, regardless of criminal or civil action, the employee may be subject to disciplinary action under applicable personnel policies or collective bargaining agreements. Report suspected employee misconduct to the Office of Employment Practices at (530) 898-6771.

The standard of proof used for campus disciplinary procedures is preponderance of the evidence. The preponderance is based on the more convincing evidence and its probable truth or accuracy, and not on the amount of evidence.

The University is committed to providing judicial and disciplinary proceedings that are supportive, sensitive, expedient, and respectful to each individual involved.

Both the accuser and the accused are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during disciplinary proceedings, and both must be informed of the outcome of any institutional disciplinary proceedings. For additional information regarding judicial proceedings, visit the Student Judicial Affairs website at: www.csuchico.edu/sjd.

Reporting Results of Discipline Proceedings for Non-Forcible Sex Offenses

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

If You Become the Victim of a Sexual Assault:

  • Get to a safe place.
  • Notify the appropriate police agency. If you are unsure of the jurisdiction in which the crime occurred, call 9-1-1 and you will be directed to the appropriate agency.
  • Seek medical attention, even if you have not been seriously physically injured. Even if you do not plan to report the sexual assault to the police, it is still important to seek medical attention in order to check for sexually transmitted infections, injuries, and pregnancy. Victim/survivors of sexual assault are entitled to forensic medical exam (commonly referred to as a sexual assault exam) at local hospital. Exams are conducted by highly trained individuals known as Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners and are provided at no cost to the victim/survivor.
  • Help preserve evidence. Physical evidence is crucial in helping to prosecute assailants. Generally, evidence must be collected within 72 hours of the assault, and only by a certified medical facility upon the request of a law enforcement agency. To preserve evidence after an attack, you should not change your clothes, bathe, shower, or take any other personal hygiene action before contacting police. If it becomes absolutely necessary that you change your clothes, each item should be packaged separately in a paper bag. If oral contact took place, do not brush your teeth, use mouthwash, or smoke. Do not straighten up the crime scene.

A victim/survivor may request a change in academic and/or living arrangements after a sexual assault. Contact the Director of University Housing and Food Services at (530) 898-6325 or the Vice President for Student Affairs at (530) 898-6131 for additional information.

CONVICTED SEXUAL OFFENDER CAMPUS REGISTRATION LAWS

Penal Code 290.01 requires sexual offenders to register with the CSU, Chico Police Department if they are: residing on the university campus, enrolled as a student of the University (either full or part-time), employed by the University (either full or part-time, with or without pay), or working or carrying on a vocation at the University (e.g. contractors and vendors) for more than 14 days, or for an aggregate period exceeding 30 days in a calendar year (including paid workers as well as volunteers).

Persons listed above must register with the CSU, Chico Police Department within five working days of commencing enrollment or employment with the University.

CRIME ALERT BULLETINS AND TIMELY WARNINGS

The CSU, Chico Police Department is committed to maintaining a safe campus and believes that a well-informed community is an integral component in achieving this goal.

When a crime of a serious nature occurs or when a situation arises that would continue to endanger or negatively affect the campus community, a crime alert bulletin will be issued electronically via campus and student announcements, campus e-mail, and posted on the CSU, Chico Police Department's website as soon as practical. Hard copies of the crime alert bulletin may also be posted on various bulletin boards across campus. The information posted in a crime alert bulletin shall include, but will not be limited to, information about the incident and how members of the campus community can better protect themselves.

The University's Chief of Police, Police Lieutenant, or the University's Public Information Officer is responsible for issuing crime alert bulletins. The issuing of a timely warning may be delayed if it is determined that such a warning would interfere with or hinder efforts to resolve the situation.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE, EVACUATION, AND NOTIFICATION

CSU, Chico has a comprehensive Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP) outlining campus emergency response and recovery procedures. The EPP was designed to serve as a guide for personal preparedness and response, and to establish policies, procedures and an organizational hierarchy for response to emergencies occurring on campus.

If an emergency or unplanned event occurs that threatens the safety of persons or property, the CSU, Chico Police Department should be notified immediately. The CSU, Chico Police Department will ensure the most rapid response of necessary resources. Police personnel will conduct or coordinate a rapid needs assessment with other personnel and communicate the findings to the appropriate designated authority to further close all or a portion of campus. It should be noted that some unplanned events or emergencies may dictate the need for CSU, Chico Police Department Officers to exercise their police powers to direct persons to evacuate buildings or areas directly affected by a criminal or non-criminal incident for safety and evidence preservation purposes.

When an unplanned event or emergency occurs, the CSU, Chico Police Department Watch Commander on duty will notify the following university officials as soon as possible:

  • Police Lieutenant (Operations Commander)
  • Chief of Police
  • University President or designee

The decision to close the entire campus or any portion of the campus when an emergency or unplanned event occurs shall be made by the University President or designee. In most cases this decision will be made on the basis of information and recommendations received through consultation with the CSU, Chico Police Department and/or other emergency management personnel. When campus closure is authorized and/or a campus emergency is declared, the Emergency Operations Center Director (Chief of Police) will implement campus closure procedures.

In the event of an emergency or natural disaster, the University is committed to providing official emergency information as quickly as the situation allows. Information concerning the emergency and the status of CSU, Chico will be available to students, faculty, staff, and the local community through a variety of sources, including:

The University's Chief of Police, Police Lieutenant, or the University’s Public Information Officer is responsible for issuing emergency notifications, unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

Faculty, students, and staff are encouraged to become familiar with the Emergency Preparedness Plan. Emergency phone numbers, as well as important information related to medical emergencies, earthquake and fire safety, chemical spills, toxic fumes, power outages, physical threat or assault/workplace violence, and bomb threats are contained in the EPP. It is important to have a plan and know what to do before, during, and after an emergency.

HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICIES

Campus Alcohol Policy

CSU, Chico complies with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1990 and the Higher Education Act Section 120a.

The possession, consumption, or transportation of alcoholic beverages on the University campus or in campus-owned facilities is generally prohibited as a matter of institutional policy. This policy is formalized in Executive Memorandum 99-11;. CSU, Chico and the CSU, Chico Police Department are very concerned about the abuse and over consumption of alcoholic beverages by students and devote a great deal of attention and resources to this serious issue. It is the belief of the CSU, Chico Police Department that education, as well as strict enforcement of local, state, and federal laws, will help to control the abuse of alcohol on campus. Education regarding the dangers of alcohol abuse will provide students with the opportunity to make informed choices regarding its use, while strict enforcement will help to ensure the safety and security of the campus community. It is important to note that the CSU, Chico Police Department will investigate and prosecute, to the fullest extent of the law, any violation of local, state, or federal laws pertaining to the use/abuse of alcohol. Successful prosecution can lead to fines or incarceration in county jail or state prison, depending on the violation committed.

The unlawful manufacture, distribution, sale, possession, or use of illegal drugs on the university campus or at any university-sponsored off campus event is prohibited. No one may use illegal substances, or abuse legal substances, including alcohol, in a manner which impairs performance of assigned tasks.

Excessive use of alcohol and other drugs is a serious health problem in and of itself, but can also contribute to a host of other physical and mental health problems such as unwanted pregnancy, psychological depression, violent behavior, HIV infection, and other sexually transmitted infections. Alcohol and drug abuse can also lead to failure in school, inability to hold a job, and legal problems.
