Use this form to
report any action, Civil or Criminal, related to incidents against a person
and/or property. Report any unlawful activity, unusual or a violation of
Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint Community College District policies that occurs to
an individual currently on or off campus. The law enforcement having
jurisdiction may be notified if the crime occurs on or off campus.
Confidentiality: Where a reporting person requests that his/her name or other
identifiable information not be shared with the accused or that no formal
action be taken, the College will balance this request with its dual obligation
to provide a safe and non‐discriminatory
environment for all College community members and to remain true to principles
of fundamental fairness that require notice and an opportunity to respond
before action is taken against a Respondent or individual(s). In
making this determination, the College may consider the seriousness of the
conduct, the respective ages and roles of the Complainant and Respondent /
person(s), whether there have been other complaints or reports of harassment or
misconduct against the Respondent / person(s), and the rights of the Respondent
/ person(s) to receive notice and relevant information before disciplinary
action is sought.
The college will take all reasonable steps to investigate and respond to the reporting person consistent with the request for confidentiality or request not to pursue an investigation, but its ability
The College will take all reasonable steps to
investigate and respond to the complaint consistent with the request for
confidentiality or request not to pursue an investigation, but its ability to
do so may be limited based on the nature of the request by the Complainant.
Where the College is unable to take action consistent with the request of the
Complainant, the Campus Safety Director, Title IX Coordinator or a member of
the Title IX team will inform the Complainant about the chosen course of
action, which may include the College seeking disciplinary action against a
Respondent or / person(s). Alternatively, the course of action may
also include steps to limit the effects of the alleged harassment or incident
(s) and prevent its recurrence that do not involve formal disciplinary action
against a Respondent / person(s) or revealing the identity of the Complainant.
Campus Security Authorities (CSA's) may use this confidential reporting form. The Campus Security Authority (CSA) is to document as much of the requested information on the form regarding the incident and involved parties. CSA reports should include personally identifying information if available. This is important for law enforcement purposes and to avoid double counting crimes. If a victim doesn’t want the report to go any further than the CSA, the CSA should explain that he or she is required to submit the report for statistical purposes, but it can be submitted without identifying the victim.
