This information is distributed annually to all current students and employees of Lane College, and, upon request, to any applicant for enrollment or employment.

The material presented here is subject to modification, update, and/or correction as necessary at any time.
JEANNE CLERY DISCLOSURE OF CAMPUS SECURITY POLICY AND CAMPUS CRIME STATISTICS ACT
Procedure for Reporting Criminal Actions or Other Emergencies
All emergency situations on or off campus involving:
1. A crime in progress
2. A medical emergency
3. A fire
should be immediately reported by dialing 911 or 9-911 if you are dialing from a campus phone. The 911 number should be used only in crisis situations where it is necessary to summon police, fires, ambulance, or other emergency service.
The Central Dispatcher who fields calls to the Jackson Emergency 911 number is prepared to handle police, fire, or medical emergencies.
Be ready when you call to provide your name, address, call-back number, and the location of whatever it is you are calling to report. Try to be calm enough to think about the answers to questions such as who, what, when, where, why, and how.
It is unlawful to call 911 in non-emergency situations. Callers to 911 should realize that when there is an emergency, their telephone numbers may be automatically displayed on a viewing screen located at the answering point. This display of the calling number enables emergency personnel to locate the caller if the call is disrupted by the crisis, and for other investigative purposes.
Residence halls are staffed on a 24-hour basis by Residence Counselors who are trained and ready to provide any needed assistance in emergency and other potentially concerning situations. Once informed of an emergency or non-emergency situation, Residence Counselors will take appropriate steps to contact Campus Security, a College Official, and/or the appropriate external agency (police, fire, medical).
Non-emergency incidents occurring on campus can be reported directly to the College Security by calling (731) 426-7645/426-7531 (Daytime), or (731) 426-7574/426-7531 (Evenings).
