Report a Crime

Home » Campus Security » Report a Crime

Any suspicious activity or person seen in the parking lots or loitering around vehicles, inside buildings or around student housing should be reported to the nearest available college personnel and/or to Tribal Law and Order. In addition you may report a crime to the following:

Vice President of Academic Affairs | 275-4972 | Big Knife Building

Student Support Services | 275-4823 | Charlot Building Room 2

Student Life/Athletics |  275-4978 | Joe McDonald Health and Fitness Center

SKC Campus Security Office | 275-4751 | SKC Security Office

Community members, students, faculty, staff, and guests are encouraged to report all crimes and public safety related incidents to the SKC Campus Security Office in a timely manner. All incident reports are reviewed and distributed to the proper authorities. Incidents involving students will be forwarded to the Vice President of Academic Affairs for review and potential action. Statistics will also be presented on incidents of a more minor nature, such as, petty theft and campus accidents. SKC will prepare an annual report on campus crimes and incidents that will cover the preceding two years for which information is available by the Auxiliary Services Department. Crimes should be reported to SKC Campus Security to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate.

Confidential Reporting Procedures

The identity of persons making reports is kept confidential. Reporting incidents as a form of good citizenship is encouraged.

If you are a victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the SKC campus system or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With your permission, SKC can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, SKC 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 report for the institution.

As a result of the negotiated rulemaking process, which followed the signing into law, the 1998 amendments to 20 U.S.C. Section 1092 (f), clarification was given to those considered to be campus security authorities. Campus Pastoral Counselors and Campus Professional Counselors, when acting as such, are not considered to be a campus security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics. As a matter of policy, they are encouraged; if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for inclusion into the annual crime statistics.
