Security Awareness and Crime Prevention Programs

The philosophy of the John A. Logan College Campus Safety Department is to prevent crime from occurring rather than reacting after the fact. The following is a list of crime prevention programs offered by the Campus Safety Department.

Escort Program. If a student, faculty, or staff member feels endangered, he or she may contact the Campus Safety Office to arrange for an escort until the danger has subsided.

Crime Information, Warnings, and Annual Statistics. The John A. Logan College policy is to make the student population aware of crime on campus. Annual reports are published on this website as well as brochures available around campus through the Safety Department or at information booths. Warnings considering crime will be posted as situations demand.

Crime Prevention Presentations. Throughout the year information and presentations are available on subjects such as rape awareness, theft, burglary prevention, and campus safety.

Sexual Assault and Rape Prevention. John A. Logan College is committed to educating the campus community in ways to prevent rape, acquaintance rape, and other sexual offenses. Training and other educational programs are offered at the College through the crime awareness presentations. The College strongly encourages the reporting of all sexual assaults and other sexual offenses. A student who believes he/she is in immediate danger on campus should call the Campus Safety Department, or if in the community individuals should call the police as soon as possible.

If a student wishes to report a case of sexual assault and to have have the matter prosecuted criminally, Logan College will investigate in conjuction with other appropriate state law enforcement agencies. The College also recommends, in the appropriate circumstances, that the student receive treatment at a hospital emergency room. At the hospital emergency room, the student will be checked for injuries, sexually-transmitted diseases, and pregnancy. The hospital will also collect evidence that will be valuable if the student decides to pursue criminal charges. If at all possible, the student should try not to go the bathroom, shower, douche, or change clothing before going to the hospital. The student should bring a change of clothes. The college will change a victim's academic situation if it is requested and is reasonably available.

The College will pursue criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law in justified cases, and the College will impose educational sanctions. Possible College sanctions following an on-campus disciplinary procedure involving responsible filings of sexual assault, acquaintance rape, or other sexual offenses may include one or more of the following: expulsion with no ability to return to College, suspension for a specified time, exclusion from areas on campus, and mandatory counseling. The accuser and accused are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during disciplinary proceedings. Both the accuser and the accused shall be informed of the outcome of any institutional disciplinary proceeding brought alleging a sex offense, the institution's final determination, and any sanction against the accused.
