Information For Crime Victims
Report all incidents to the NCCC Public Safety Department. The NCCC Public Safety Department (G106) is located on the North side of G-building, (Student Center) at the main entrance to G-building. Registration desk at NFCI.
The NCCC Public Safety Department seriously regrets any problem that you may encounter as a student at NCCC.
If you attend a NCCC class at one of our extension sites, report all incidents such as thefts, assaults, harassment, suspicious persons or vehicle accidents to the local police agency. In Niagara County this can be accomplished by dialing 911 during an emergency situation.
Report all incidents that occur on campus to the Public Safety Department ASAP. Public Safety personnel will be dispatched to your location.
Based on the type of incident, a determination will be made to call the NYSP or NCSO immediately or upon completion of the officer's investigation. A copy of the report will be forwarded to the police if necessary.
To assist us, we will ask for evidence, witnesses, suspects, identifying markings, and other related information. Serial numbers or identifiable markings are vitally important. Items may turn up on campus grounds, in pawnshops, during police arrests, and by inquiring through the National Crime Prevention Computer.
Be sure to inform us if you recover your property at a later date. If you gain additional information relating to the incident, please notify us.
NCCC does not carry insurance to cover the theft of personal property. If personal property is stolen from you, we suggest you contact your insurance agent for possible coverage through your home owners or automotive insurance.
When an investigation is successful, and an offender is identified; we will need your continued cooperation. You may be required to identify the property, sign an accusatory instrument, and/or a supporting deposition. These state that you did not give anyone permission to use your property.
The NCCC Public Safety Department will assist you and do everything within our power and resources to solve crimes and apprehend offenders.
Confidential Reporting of Crimes:
NCCC currently has no Policy for the Voluntary Confidential Reporting of Crimes for the inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics.
REPORTING INCIDENTS AND INJURIES
Accidents resulting in personal injuries to anyone on campus are to be reported to the Wellness Center (C122) at extension 6275. When the Wellness Center is not open, report personal injuries to the NCCC Public Safety Department (G106) at extension 6400. Sporting event injuries are reported to the NCCC Athletic Trainer (H167) extension 6242.
Notify your instructor immediately if an injury occurs in class, to insure that you receive prompt treatment for any injuries by obtaining first aid or medical treatment. If treatment requires first aid, the instructor or another person must accompany the injured person en route to the Wellness Center. Injured students are not to be sent to the Wellness unescorted to seek medical attention.
Parking Lot Car Theft
Every year several thefts occur from vehicles parked in campus lots. In an effort to stop this problem, the NCCC Public Safety Department has increased its surveillance of parking lots; but we cannot cover all areas at the same time. It's up to YOU to aid in this problem, and help us to make sure your vehicle is not a target for crime. The following preventative actions will help curb theft from our parking lots:
- Always lock your vehicle and remove the keys. This will reduce your chance of having your car stolen, and reduce the temptation of a basically honest person from entering your car. Most car thieves don't need to break in. They usually enter through unlocked doors; and many cases, find keys in the ignition. The most frequently stolen vehicle is the one left unlocked. Remember: Vehicle thefts can happen anywhere!
- Don't leave visible signs that tell someone what is in your vehicle. Remember to put wires and brackets out of sight for GPS and Satellite radio systems. Thieves are even clever enough to look for round spots (from suction-cup holders) on windows that show evidence of something of value is in your vehicle.
- Don't leave valuables inside your vehicle where they are highly visible. Learn to keep valuables locked in your trunk. Make this an everyday practice. We have never had a reported theft where items were removed from a secure vehicle trunk.
- Report suspicious persons to the Security Department as soon as possible. Take good notes of the incident. Be sure to get a good description of the person or persons, their location, type of vehicle, and license plate number if possible. If you see suspicious activity near your vehicle, do not precede to that area, call security to report it. Always err on caution and do not try to handle a problem yourself – get help, that's what we are here for!
