Introduction The information and statistics contained in this publication are being presented in compliance with The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center Adult Education (ACWHCC) publishes this information to inform members of the campus community and other interested parties of incidents of crime and to educate them in effective crime prevention and safety measures so that they can make informed decisions relative to their safety. The crime statistics reflect incidents that occurred on ACWHCC campus or on public property adjacent to the campuses. Ashland County West-Holmes Career Center does not provide residential dormitories or facilities for on campus student housing. The Adult Education Director has primary responsibility for categorizing, disseminating and publishing crime statistics collected on campus and includes statistics obtained from local law enforcement.

Introduction to the Jeanne Clery Act The safety of students, staff and visitors is an important concern of ACWHCC. This report is intended to raise your awareness and provide you with information to protect your safety and well-being. In compliance with Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics (Clery Act), ACWHCC prepares this Annual Security report. Institutions participating in federal student financial aid must present to current and future students and employees certain crime statistics and policies in accordance with the Clery Act. In addition, it includes reported campus crimes, arrests and referral statistics to local law enforcement agencies and designated campus officials. ACWHCC does not have on or off campus housing no does it have student organizations. Therefore, no crime statistics or policies pertaining to such are included in this report.

Basic Crime Prevention Steps Effective crime prevention begins with personal involvement and responsibility. By taking a few moments to think before acting, we can all make ourselves less likely to become a victim or a statistic. The following is a list of DOs and DON'Ts to help you in protecting your personal property and yourself. DO lock your car at all times - when parked and when driving; DO report all crimes and/or suspicious activities to Adult Education Office promptly; DO mark your valuable possessions (books, calculators, recorders, etc.) i.e. with your driver's license number; DO treat all personal property as you do cash; DO ask a friend to walk with you to the parking lot; DON’T leave valuables in plain sight in your vehicle (iPods, GPS devices, books). DON'T leave books, handbags, book bags, wallets, etc. unattended in the library, cafeteria, restrooms or study areas; DON'T leave your purse or other valuables in an unlocked desk or file cabinet; DON'T leave cash or checks in your unlocked desk or file cabinet. Crime prevention is everyone's job. With some effort and forethought we can maintain a safe campus environment.

Sexual Misconduct & Dating Violence Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center (ACWHCC) is committed to a consistent effort in maintaining an environment free of sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment and sexual assault/rape) and all forms of sexual intimidation, exploitation and dating violence including stalking and domestic violence. In its goal to create an environment for all students, employees and visitors which is fair and free of coercion, the Center has adopted a sexual harassment policy with accompanying procedures as the basis for community education and complaint resolution. Sexual misconduct cannot and will not be tolerated at ACWHCC. Sexual misconduct is a form of discrimination in violation of Center’s policy and Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 (as amended), Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments and Section 4112 of the Ohio Revised Code. Students, staff and visitors at ACWHCC have a right to an environment free of sexual misconduct, not only by persons in positions of power, but by any ACWHCC employee, student or visitor. Sexual misconduct constitutes a serious threat to the free interaction and exchange necessary for educational and personal development. Sexual misconduct is not only a clear violation of the Center’s policy; it is a form of discrimination and is illegal. Consent is defined as voluntary, positive agreement between participants to engage in specific sexual activity. Sexual assault/rape is defined as penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim. Sexual harassment is defined as unwanted sexual attention such as staring, leering, ogling, sexual teasing, jokes, gestures, inappropriate touching, pressures for a date or sex, forced sexual relations or suggestions that sex can be exchanged for grades or a promotion. It can happen to both men and women, but women are more often the victims. Domestic Violence is defined as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate partner. Domestic violence can be

Annual Security Report 2016

Page 16

physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten, terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure, or wound someone. Dating Violence is defined as violence committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim. The existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on consideration of the following factors: the length of the relationship; the type of relationship; and the frequency of interaction between the persons involved. Stalking is defined as a pattern of repeated and unwanted attention, harassment, contact, or any other course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear for his/her safety or for the safety of those around him/her or suffer substantial emotional distress. Sexual Harassment may occur when a person in a position of control or influence over a person's grades, academic career, or job uses authority and power to gain sexual advantages and threatens or punishes for refusal. Another form of sexual harassment is peer harassment (by other students), and includes any of the above unwanted actions (except suggestions that can be exchanged for grade or promotions). Sexual harassment committed by students is a serious offense which could lead to dismissal from the Center. If an individual is the victim of sexual misconduct he/she is strongly encouraged to report such incidents promptly to the Adult Education Director, located in the Adult Education Office, 419-289-3313 Extension 2246, [email protected] If an individual is the victim of a sexual assault, formal charges alleging sexual assault occurring on campus may be lodged with the Adult Education Office which will make immediate contact with the local law enforcement agency in order to ensure a prompt and thorough investigation of the occurrence. If the victim is uncertain about reporting an instance of sexual misconduct, the Center’s officials strongly encourage victims to talk to someone about it. The Center’s crisis counselors are licensed mental health professionals and any conversation had with them is considered a privileged and confidential communication. They are not required to report any information about the incident to Center’s officials. The advocates are able to notify Center’s officials without disclosing any personally identifiable information about the victim.

Bystander Intervention Options Any campus community member that observes or is made aware of an incidence of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking occurring on campus is strongly encouraged to report the matter immediately to the Adult Education Office, 419-289-3313, Extension 2203. If the situation necessitates and immediate police presence, please call 9-1-1. Some other safe intervention options can include:  Notifying a Center’s official – see page 5  Avoiding use violence  Being honest and direct when trying to diffuse the situation  Recruiting the assistance of others around you  Keeping yourself safe at all times

Page 17

What to Do If You Are Sexually Assaulted: In the case of a sexual assault, it is extremely important that physical evidence be preserved.  Find a safe environment away from your attacker and call 9-1-1 immediately! If possible, ask a trusted friend to stay with you. And, remember, it’s not your fault you were attacked.  Write down everything you can remember about the incident and assailant (physical description, location of the attack, etc.)  Preserve evidence of the attack. Though you may want to, do not bathe or brush your teeth. Do not wash or get rid of any of the clothing that you were wearing. If possible, take pictures of any visible bruises or injuries you may have.  If the incident occurred on any campus, immediately report the information to any Center’s official 419-289-3313 Extension 2203, or dial 9-1-1. (See page 5) Information can also be shared with a campus advocate. Center’s officials will assist the victim in notifying the local law enforcement agency and navigating the reporting process.  Seek medical attention. Even if you don’t think you’re injured, it’s important to test for STDs and pregnancy. Ask the hospital to conduct a rape kit exam and, if you think that you have been drugged, collect a urine sample for analysis by a lab.  For survivors of sexual assault seeking counseling and support, Center’s officials have identified the following resources: 1. Rape Crisis Domestic Violence 2233 Rocky Lane Ashland, OH 44805 (419) 289-8085 2. National Sexual Assault Hotline 800-656-4673 3. National Domestic Violence Hotline 800-799-7233 4.
