REPORTING A CRIME OR EMERGENCY
Regardless of how you 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. There are three schools that comprise the LSU Health Shreveport community (School of Allied Health Professions, School of Graduate Studies, and School of Medicine) and each have their own policies that outline standards of conduct governing their constituents and provide procedures for sanctioning violations of those standards. Allegations of student misconduct are forwarded to the designated official at the school the student attends 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 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.
