2013 Clery Report

Introduction

The University of Rio Grande has a strong commitment to the safety and security of our students, employees, and guests.

The following information is provided to help further our commitment, and to provide data in compliance with the Campus Security Act of 1990 and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998. This report is disseminated to students and staff by October 1 of each year and is also available on the Campus Police portion of the University of Rio Grande website.

The report is prepared by the Campus Police Department and compiled using crime statistics from reports taken by the campus police and surrounding law enforcement agencies.
The University of Rio Grande campus consists of more than 31 academic, administrative, recreational, and residential buildings situated on 170 acres in the village of Rio Grande, Ohio. Located along a major federal highway (U.S. Route 35), the University currently enrolls approximately 2200 students, of which about 392 are resident students. Additionally, the University has 226 full-time and 51 part-time employees.

The University of Rio Grande Police Department

The University of Rio Grande Police Department was created by the University Board of Trustees pursuant to Section 1713.50 of the Ohio Revised Code. The primary objective of the department is to provide a safe and healthy environment that enhances the campus learning experience and complements the University’s educational mission.

The department, located at 504 E. College St., has officers on duty 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The University of Rio Grande police department works very closely with the Rio Grande Village Police, Gallia County Sheriff’s Office, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol in the enforcement and investigation of federal, state, and local statutes, as well as university regulations. The department maintains a staff of one full-time police chief, one full-time patrol sergeant, five full-time police officers, and five part-time officers, all trained by the Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy and the American Red Cross. The office also employs a full-time records clerk. The officers are uniformed and armed, are commissioned by the University with full enforcement and arrest powers. Officers provide vehicle and foot patrols throughout the campus community.

Contact Information/Reporting Crimes and Emergencies

The campus police department encourages accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes to the appropriate reporting agency, including a campus security authority.
Campus Security Authorities are staff and faculty of the University who are required to report information they receive about specified crimes. This could be a professor, Resident Assistant or even a coach. It is the policy of the University of Rio Grande to ensure that victims and witnesses to crime are aware of their right to report criminal acts to the police, and to report university policy violations to the appropriate office. However, if a student chooses to remain anonymous, that request will be honored to the extent permitted by law.

If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action with the University System or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With your permission, a Campus Police officer or Campus Security Authority 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.

Campus “Pastoral Counselor” 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. 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.

The University police department is a pro-active agency that provides community oriented policing to the Rio Grande community. Members of the community are encouraged to report criminal activity or emergency situations to the department by calling 911 or 9-911 on campus phones for emergencies, and campus extension 7286, or (740) 245-7286 for other non-emergency matters. Phone calls to the Campus Police office are automatically transferred to the on-duty campus officer if employees are not at the station. You may also inform campus police of a crime anonymously by accessing our electronic tip line from www.rio.edu by clicking on campus police and then clicking tip line or reporting your anonymous tip by calling ext. 7224 on campus or calling (740) 245-7224 off campus. Emergency call box phones are located in parking lots and on buildings across the campus. The phones dial directly to the Campus Police Department. You may also report a crime to: Dean of Students, Aaron Quinn at (740) 245-7454 or to the Director of Health Services, Marlene Childers at (740) 245-7389.

The department maintains direct radio contact with the Gallia County Sheriff’s Department, the Gallia County Emergency Medical Services, and the Rio Grande Fire and Police Departments, and the Gallipolis Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Further, the department communicates regularly with all other local law enforcement agencies, facilitating an exchange of crime-related reports and statistics. This information is made available in the annual campus safety report, at regular intervals in the campus newspaper, and in as-needed crime alerts from Campus Police or Campus Safety. Crime alerts are issued as needed by text messaging and student and staff email. You may sign up for emergency text messaging by accessing www.rio.edu and clicking on Campus Police and click on emergency text messaging.  The annual campus safety report can be picked up in print form at Campus Police or may be accessed electronically at www.rio.edu.

The Campus Police department is also responsible for maintaining a daily crime log, which catalogs reports taken by the department. This log is available for viewing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. M-F at the Campus Police Department.

University Police officers are here to help. Officers have received special training regarding sexual assault. They will work with the victim throughout the entire process. Initially, all contact with Campus Police will be considered confidential.

  • Call a support person (someone who can provide emotional support, transportation, and assistance). Choose a counselor, nurse, staff or faculty person, R.A., Hall Director, or a friend.

  • Get immediate medical attention. A health professional needs to determine the extent of injuries and necessary treatment. The University will arrange transportation for the victim. Expenses associated with a trip to the hospital may be covered under the Ohio Victims of Crime Program.

  • Do not bathe or douche and save all clothing. Evidence for a criminal case may be present on clothes. If clothes are changed, save what was worn and place it in a paper bag.

  • While the University encourages the victim to report a sexual assault incident, the choice is the victim’s. The longer one waits to report a problem, the more difficult it may be to prosecute. The Counseling and Health Services staff are available if there is a need to discuss the situation or to receive advice.

  • If law enforcement officials determine there is an immediate threat, a timely warning will be issued. A timely warning will include information that law enforcement feels is important for students and staff to be aware of. This will be sent by either text or email. Directions for how to sign up for our community-wide emergency texting system can be found on the main Rio website.

  • The University is prepared to assist a victim of sexual assault with changes in academic and living arrangements if desired and available. Both the accused and accuser of a sex offense are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during a disciplinary proceeding and will be informed of the outcome of any institutional disciplinary action proceeding an alleged sexual offense.

Disciplinary actions following a sexual offense disciplinary hearing may include removal from the residence hall, suspension or expulsion, depending on the severity of the offense.

Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures

The University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College has in print form a comprehensive emergency response plan and safety manual. These documents were updated in October of 2012. These documents are available for public inspection at the Campus Police Department Monday through Friday during business hours.

Students and employees can opt into the University’s emergency text message system to receive emergency notifications. Students and staff can register for the emergency text message system from the main web page at www.rio.edu. In addition, to receiving a text message, participants will also receive an instant email at an address of their choosing that is generated automatically as an added feature of the University’s emergency text messaging system called NIXLE.

The University has also acquired and installed an outdoor early warning system to also alert the campus community of pending emergencies. The system consists of a large siren mounted on a telephone pole that rotates 360 degrees that can be heard up to 1½ miles away indoors or out alerting all on campus of an emergency. The system emits different tones that represent different emergencies. Students and employees can access the main web page at www.rio.edu to familiarize themselves with the outdoor early warning system.

The University will without delay and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system(s), unless doing so will in the professional judgment of the authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

Upon learning of a possible emergency, the University Chief of Police will consult with the Executive Vice President and the President to determine the legitimacy of the emergency, who to notify, the content of the notification, and initiate the notification system. If necessary, the Police Chief will disseminate emergency information to other first responders outside of the campus community.
