Reporting Crimes and Other Emergencies
Daytona State College strongly encourages anyone who is a victim of or witness to a crime to promptly report the incident to Campus Safety. Students, employees and guests should immediately report crimes in progress, accidents and other emergencies by dialing
9-1-1, (remember to dial 9-9-1-1 from a campus phone)
or by contacting Campus Safety at
(386) 506-4444 (extension 4444 from a campus phone)
In case of power outage or College network service interruption call (386) 258-7374.
Campus Safety officers are not police officers and are not empowered as such.
Campus Safety officers or other Campus Security Authorities will assist you in making a report to law enforcement officers at your request.
Daytona State enjoys an excellent working relationship with the local law enforcement agencies. Uniformed police officers patrol campuses during busy times. Campus Safety has police radios to contact police and emergency central dispatch directly, allowing us to reach emergency responders more directly and reducing the response time when police and emergency assistance is needed.
Reporting Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, and Gender-Based Violence and Misconduct
If you are the victim of a sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking, you have specific rights under federal law. These rights include being assisted by Daytona State College Counseling Services at your request, being directed to local community resources for behavioral health and other assistance for survivors of crime, academic and, if applicable, living accommodations, and rights associated with disciplinary proceedings. Your rights will be honored whether or not you choose to remain confidential or make a police report. You will be treated with dignity and sensitivity by College officials. If you choose to make a police report, Daytona State College officials will assist you in doing so at your reqest. Upon reporting an incident of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, your confidentiality will be protected to the fullest extent permissible by law. More information on your rights as a survivor, resources, and Daytona State College policy and procedures is available by following these links:
Allegations of on-campus sex offenses, relationship violence, and gender-based misconduct will be investigated as violations of college policy. Violations of college policy are referred to the appropriate administrator for disciplinary proceedings. Incidents involving a Disciplinary Hearing will result in: Unfounded-Not Guilty; Warning; Reprimand; Probation; Loss of Privileges; Restitution; Suspension or Expulsion from Daytona State. During all phases of the disciplinary process, the accused and accuser are permitted to have others present with them. For more information on disciplinary proceedings refer to the Judicial Affairs website and the Student Handbook.
Campus Security Authorities
Certain College officials have the qualification of "Campus Security Authority" ("CSA") under federal guidelines, and are trained in taking reports of crime. These include but are not limited to: academic club advisors, Athletics Department coaches and managers, Student Services managers, Judicial Affairs officers, Human Resources representatives, and College administrators (e.g. directors, deans, vice presidents). You may make a report of a crime to a Campus Security Authority as well as to Campus Safety, for example, if you feel uncomfortable talking with a Campus Safety officer. See more information on Campus Security Authorities.
You may report incidents in non-emergency situations by contacting Campus Safety, either by phone or in person at the Campus Safety office on your campus.

TIPS FOR REPORTING CRIMES OR EMERGENCIES
DON'T HANG UP
- Stay on the line unless doing so places you in immediate danger. 9-1-1 operators are trained to get as much information as possible to determine the nature of the problem and its seriousness. On emergency calls, the operator already has sent the information to a dispatcher while continuing to ask additional questions. Stay on the line and answer the operator's questions until he or she terminates the call.
BE READY TO GIVE YOUR LOCATION
Learn the campus, especially the areas you frequent. Take note of parking lot names (e.g. Orange C) building numbers, and landmarks which will help a law enforcement officer or Campus Safety Officer find you.
PROVIDE AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSSIBLE
When describing a person, try to take note of age, height, weight, hair color, clothing description, mode and direction of travel.
When describing a vehicle, try to include the make, model, color, license plate number, insurance company name & policy number, etc.
If your property is stolen, provide a complete description, times you left the property and discovered it missing, serial and model numbers (if known), estimated value, and any other information that could assist in recovery.
IF THE SITUATION CHANGES BEFORE HELP ARRIVES, CALL 9-1-1 OR CAMPUS SAFETY AGAIN AND UPDATE THE OPERATOR.
SUSPICIOUS OR CRIMINAL ACTIVITY CAN BE REPORTED CONFIDENTIALLY TO OUR DAYTONA STATE CONFIDENTIAL HOTLINE.386-506-4500
All calls will be investigated.
