REPORTING A CRIME OR EMERGENCY

LSU Health Shreveport University Police Department encourages prompt and accurate reporting of all crimes to University Police and appropriate police agencies, even when the victim of a crime elects to or is unable to make such a report. If you are a victim or witness any criminal or suspicious activity, fire, or other emergency you are urged to notify the University Police in a timely manner by dialing 318-675-6165 or 911, or by using the LSU Shield App on your smartphone. In the event of an emergency or ongoing threat, please get to a safe location first and then report the incident.

Regardless of how you to decide to report these incidents, it is critical for the safety of the entire LSU Health Shreveport community that you report all incidents in a timely manner which allows University Police to assess the complaint for the purpose of issuing timely warnings or emergency notifications. It will also ensure if an investigation or any appropriate follow-up actions need to be taken.  When someone chooses not to report the incident; we encourage survivors to at least consult a confidential resource, such as the SAVE Program to receive important counseling and referral information. Remember you do not have to file a report to obtain these services.

University Police also records and monitors, when notified by local law enforcement agencies, any criminal activity by students at non campus locations of student organizations officially recognized by the university (LSU Health Shreveport does not have any on- or off-campus housing facilities). University Police makes every effort to provide a record of the incident to the Dean’s Office for review and follow-up action. Student Code of Conduct violations are forwarded to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities for review. Employee matters are forwarded to Human Resources for review. When appropriate, an incident will be referred to the Title IX Office for review.

Voluntary, Confidential Reporting

LSU Health Shreveport wants everyone to feel safe reporting any wrongful conduct and is committed to protecting individuals from retaliation for having made a protected disclosure or for cooperating with an investigation. We understand and respect a victim may not wish to pursue a criminal investigation, but are strongly encouraged to file a voluntary, confidential report. With such information, the university can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving employees, students, faculty, and visitors; determine if there is a pattern of a crime regarding a particular location, method, or assailant; or alert the campus community to potential dangers. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the Annual Security Report. If an individual requests confidentiality when reporting, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, it may be able to be filed confidentially. LSU Health Shreveport will take all reasonable steps to honor the request for privacy and will be respected to the fullest extent permitted by state law or university processes. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with wishes to keep any personal identifying information confidential, while taking steps to ensure the safety of involved parties.

LSU Health Shreveport distinguishes between privacy and confidentiality. Privacy in this context means that information related to a disclosure or report of prohibited conduct will generally be shared only with those university employees who need to know the information in order to review, investigate, or resolve the matter. Confidentiality means that the information shared will not be disclosed without the individual’s permission or as required by law. Disclosure may be legally required if the reported conduct poses a threat of serious harm to the reporting party or others, or if the reported conduct involves suspected abuse or neglect of a minor. The university may not be able to assure confidentiality and will inform involved parties when allegations involving sexual harassment (including sexual violence) are reported, then they must be made available to the University’s Title IX Coordinator.
