220.019 – How To Report A Crime

Updated: March 2020

POLICY

MMW+C’s students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to report all crimes and public safety related incidents to one of the COT team members or Maine Media’s online incident report in a timely manner. https://www.mainemedia.edu/life-at-mmwc/incidentreport/
Crimes should be reported to MMW+C to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate.

PROCEDURE

Michael Mansfield, President, Elizabeth Greenberg, Provost, Kerry Curren, Director of Student Services and Cathi Finnemore, Director of Finance & Administration are the designated Campus Oversight Team (COT).

If a crime of a non- emergency nature occurs, students should report that crime to one of the COT team members, who can then assist the student in reporting the crime to local law enforcement authorities, if the student wishes to do so. Members of MMW+C’s community should report any crimes to the COT team if the victim is unable to do so.

Any crime of an emergency nature should be first reported to local law enforcement (911) in order to receive immediate help, as MMW+C does not have its own campus police.

An Incident Report must also be completed using Maine Media Workshops + College online report at https://www.mainemedia.edu/life-at-mmwc/incidentreport/

If you are a victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within MMW+C or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report to a COT team members or completing the online Incident Report, so that it may be reported in the annual crime statistics. In such cases, the report will be kept entirely confidential, and will be disclosed only as a statistic.

Make reports in-person, by phone, or email to a Campus Oversight Team member or online: https://www.mainemedia.edu/life-at-mmwc/incidentreport/
