Mission Statement

ISU Public Safety endeavors to: (1) provide a peaceful and secure environment free from the threat of physical harm, property loss, and disruptive activity; and (2) promote mutual cooperation and conflict resolution in establishing a positive social atmosphere in which effective learning can take place.

Public Safety

Pocatello- Idaho State University Public Safety officers are on duty and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even though the officers are not sworn peace officers, they are responsible for enforcement of university rules and regulations. Public Safety officers are authorized to make citizen's arrests when necessary and detain suspicious subjects for questioning by the police. The ISU campus is within the jurisdiction of the Pocatello Police Department and is patrolled regularly by the Pocatello Police. Various buildings on campus are used regularly by city, county, and state law enforcement for training activities. County and state law enforcement periodically patrol the public streets on campus. Public Safety officers work closely with the city police and other law enforcement agencies to assist in safeguarding the campus community, including its facilities located outside of Pocatello.

Daily Incident Logs

Pocatello Police, Idaho Falls Police and Boise Police use computerized dispatch and records systems to collect and tabulate Uniform Crime Report data, which include crimes based on prejudice which means hate crimes. The systems are designed to record all incidents that occur on ISU property, whether on campus or off, and all incidents that occur at off-campus student organizations recognized by ISU. Crime statistics for all locations are recorded in this pamphlet. Under the Spillman Incident Reporting system, new information is added on the reporting officer's shift. Incident logs are available to the public during business hours on a daily basis. The logs are posted to the web site every 24 hours.

Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to ISU Public Safety, the Pocatello Police, designated campus officials, including but not limited to, directors, deans, department heads, advisors to student organizations and athletic coaches.

Each year, an e-mail notification is made to all enrolled students that provides the web site to access this report. Faculty and staff receive similar notification by postcard. Copies of the report may also be obtained at the Public Safety Department, 625 E Humbolt Streetm building number 27, on the ISU campus.

Public Safety officers are Idaho Peace Officer Standard & Training (POST) certified crime prevention specialists and have completed the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators Campus Officer Training program. Officers receive periodic training from workshops and seminars offered through in-service training and through other agencies. All officers receive updated training necessary for quality job performance.

Idaho Falls- Idaho State University and the University of Idaho offer graduate and undergraduate courses at the Center For Higher Education located at 1776 Science Center Drive, Idaho Falls, Idaho, and classes are conducted at the Idaho Falls High School. The facilities are within the jurisdiction of the Idaho Falls Police Department. A security officer is on duty Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Idaho Falls Police off-duty officers hired as public safety officers are at the Center for Higher Education site Monday through Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from noon to 6:00 p.m. These officers may be reached by calling the ISU dispatch center in Pocatello who will contact them by radio or by cell phone. The Idaho Falls Police patrol this area in the same manner as they do the rest of the city. Idaho Falls Police use the 911 emergency telephone system, and will respond to all emergency calls at this location as soon as possible. The Idaho Falls campus has no resident housing for students.

Boise- ISU's Boise Center located at 12301 W Explorer Drive, Suiet 102, Boise, Idaho, is within the jurisdiction of the Boise Police Department. The Boise Police patrol this area in the same manner as they do the rest of the city. Idaho State University does not provide security at this location, but it is patroled randomly during the evening and night time by a private security agency. Evening and night time entry to the building is by card access. Boise Police use the 911 emergency telephone system and will respond to all emergency calls at this location as soon as possible. The Boise Center has no resident housing for students.

Branch Campus and Satellite Offices

Please contact ISU Public Safety if you are unsure of where to file a report or from whom to request assistance. ISU Public Safety provides crime prevention and safety awareness training at these locations upon request.

ISU maintains facilities in Blackfoot, Soda Springs, Preston, Lewiston, Twin Falls, Mackay, Fort Hall and Boise (ISU Development Center). BSU, CSI, U of I and Lewiston publish their own pamphlets to inform ISU students, faculty, and staff of their policies and statistics. For crime incident information on the Pocatello campus, see the 2007 Crime Statistics. For crime incident comparison of the Pocatello campus, Idaho Falls branch campus, and Boise office facility, see the 2007 Pocatello Comparison Statistics. The Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) Campus Securty Statistics Website can be accessed at http://ope.ed.gov/security.

Campus and Residence Halls Access

Access to the ISU campus is not controlled, however, entry to residence halls and some buildings are controlled by card access. All Pocatello facilities are patrolled by ISU Public Safety 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the facilities are locked between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. on weekdays. Most buildings are locked 24 hours a day through the weekend. ISU Public Safety is included in new facility construction and facility remodel reviews.

ISU's student housing program is designed to promote a safe and secure environment for residents. Each residence hall complex has a minimum of two staff persons on duty each evening from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. The on-duty staff members are responsible for locking up the building nightly, doing rounds throughout the facilities, and providing assistance in the absence of the floor resident assistant. Public Safety makes randon patrol of all residence halls and apartment facilities.

ISU Housing has implemented a night security program and escort policy for dorms. Residence halls in cooperation with Public Safety hold a Safety Awareness Week each academic year with programs on personal safety, date rape, self defense, and residence hall and apartment security and safety.

Smoke detectors are installed in all rooms, and fire extinguisher training is required for resident assistants. A full fire safety program has been implemented in university housing.

CCTV (cameras) are used in most parking lots and some buildings.

Card reader access to some facilities is provided for faculty, staff and students. Card reader access to all facilities is being implemented.

All areas of all campuses that are revealed as potentially problematic have security surveys conducted by Public Safety officers who are crime prevention specialists. Administrators from the Student Affairs office, Facilities Services, Residence Life, and other concerned areas review these results. These survey's examine security issues such as landscaping, locks, alarms, lighting, and communications.

Substance Abuse Policy

The substance abuse program goals are: (1) to present factual and accurate information regarding drug and alcohol use, misuse, and abuse; (2) offer alternative behavior options; and (3) provide leadership in the dissemination of information; (4) students are required to obey the laws of the State of Idaho and the policies of the State Board of Education. The substance abuse policy is provided to all students, faculty, and staff in their respective handbooks. All members of the university community are encouraged to familiarize themselves with these policies and procedures.

Students- In addition to the academic development of students, the university recognizes the importance of the health and safety of its students. This includes establishing & maintaining proactive programs to deal with substance use and abuse issues including Red Ribbon Week and Alcohol Awareness Week.

Incidents of substance abuse reported to Public Safety and not prosecuted by the police are recorded officially in the Spillman Crime Reporting System, which is available to the local police at their terminals. These incident are referred for disciplinary action to proper campus authority, i.e., Housing Staff, Judicial Staff, and the Dean of Students, and these actions are recorded as official statistics in the annual report.

Actions Taken by Housing staff, Judicial staff, and through the Dean of Students

Rules and regulations prohibiting or regulating the possession, consumption, use or sale of drugs and alcohol are enumerated in the Student Code of Conduct. Violations include:

Disciplinary actions by residence hall or university systems range from mandatory alcohol education classes and probation to suspension. Students may also be subject to arrest and prosecution for violation of state and federal statutes. An additional consequence of violation of drug laws may be forfeiture of financial aid.

Applicable legal sanctions for the unlawful possession or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol include:

See Student Handbook for additional information.

Faculty and Staff- Members of the faculty and staff are required to obey the laws of the State of Idaho and policies of the State Board of Education which prohibit or regulate the possession, consumption, sale or use of drugs and alcohol on campus or during university related activities.

HEALTH RISKS OF ALCOHOL
Organs Impact
Bone Alcohol stimulates excretion of calcium; associated with osteoporosis in young and middle-aged men who are chronic drinkers
Brain Consumption of 3-9 drinks weekly is associated with increased risk of stroke from bleeding into the membrane covering the brain and spinal cord. (Other studies suggest drinking may protect against some types of strokes.) Heavy consumption can lead to dementia, blackouts, seizures, hallucinations, memory loss, learning deficit, difficult swallowing, depression, antisocial personality disorder.
Esophagus Especially in association with smoking, chronic drinkers have higher risk of cancer.
Heart Moderate consumption can bring on painful coronary artery spasms in susceptible patients. (Other studies have suggested low and moderate drinking may protect against some types of heart disease.) Higher levels can cause abnormal heart rhythms, decrease heart strength.
Larynx Alcohol abuse is associated with increased risk of cancer.
Liver Daily light drinking may cause reversible accumulation of fat in the liver; larger doses cause alcohol hepatitis; chronic drinking may result in irreversible cirrhosis, treatable only with liver transplant. Alcohol abuse has been associated with increased cancer risk.
Muscle Alcohol dependent people are susceptible to acute and chronic muscle injury and muscle atrophy.
Nutritional Deficiencies Alcohol interferes with absorption and metabolism of vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, proteins; resulting deficiencies may include anemia, neuropathies.
Pancreas Heavy alcohol consumption can cause pancreatitis.
Reproductive System Alcoholic men suffer low levels of hormone testosterone. Hormonal imbalances can cause testicles to atrophy, breasts to enlarge and impotence. Alcoholic women can lose menstrual period, become unable to ovulate, perhaps suffer early onset of menopause. Women who drink heavily may give birth to deformed & retarded babies suffering from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome or milder impairment called Fetal Alcohol Effects.
Stomach Regular consumption can exacerbate peptic ulcers, also lead to cancer

 

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy & Crime Statistics Act pamphlet is published annually and distributed to various public locations in Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Boise. Students are notified by e-mail of the web location for the pamphlet and that the pamphlet is available upon request. Notices are distributed by campus mail to staff and faculty that a pamphlet is available upon request.

A condensed edition is in the course schedule published each semester. Information about the statistics and information about the web site address is printed in a booklet about ISU distributed by Enrollment Planning/Recruitment and in the course schedule.

Crime Prevention and Safety Awareness

It is the goal of the university and ISU Public Safety to ensure that the campus community is conscious of their own safety. ISU Public Safety officers coordinate efforts with the Director of University Housing, the Dean of Student Affairs, the Director of Student Health, the Idaho Falls Center Director and local police Community Services Offices to initiate educational programs in the areas of crime prevention and safety awareness. This is accomplished through programs such as Campus Watch, New Student Orientation, New Employee Orientation, workshops, seminars, dorm meetings, newsletters and pamphlets that target individual areas of concern.

Public Safety conducts annual Crime Prevention and safety surveys and reviews construction plans of all university facilities. These programs are designed to encourage people to be responsible for their own safety and the safety of others.

Areas of concern include, but are not limited to, residential security, personal property inventory, vehicle safety, alcohol and drug awareness, personal safety, rape and acquaintance rape precautions, and what to do if you cannot avoid the occurrence of a problem.

Security education programs are conducted at residence halls at least once a semester. Freshmen orientation is done at the beginning of spring semester. Security seminars or newsletters are used regularly each year to inform faculty and staff of crime prevention issues and techniques.

Timely Warning

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgement of the Director of Public Safety, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide "timely warning" will be issued. Electronic media such as mass e-mail, phone mail, and a campus radio station are used to disseminate information to students, faculty and staff. Electronic bulletin boards are used and notices may also be distributed by hand and posted in affected areas of campus when warranted. This includes residence halls with door to door notification if needed.

Depending on theparticular circumstances of the crime, or other emergency, expecially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community, the Public Safety Department may also make notification through the reverse 911 system in coordination with the Pocatello Police Department.

Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to Public Safety by phone, 282-2515, or in person at 625 East Humbolt, (Building number 27), on the ISU campus.

Electronic media such as email, phone mail, the Public Safety website, the Campus Watch newsletter and a campus radio station are used disseminate information to the campus community. Notices may also be distributed by hand and posted in affected areas of campus when warranted.

ISU Public Safety provides safety escorts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 282-2515.

ISU Public Safety offers Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) training. RAD is the first "women only" class to offer the opportunity to train in basic self defense tactics. RAD is available to female students, faculty, and staff by contacting Public Safety at 282-2515.

Crime prevention packets are given to victims of crime. The packet contains information on reporting protocol, victims assistance and crime prevention suggestions.

All crime prevention pamphlets produced by ISU Public Safety, direct the reader to contact the police or ISU Public Safety to report incidents.

Campus Watch works with the PPD Neighborhood Watch Program.

A course requirement for the new freshmen First Year Seminar course is that the Janet C. Anderson Gender Resource Center present a one hour class for each section. Public Safety officers are invited to present to these classes as well. Information is distributed regarding personal safety, sexual assault and violence against women, safety in campus housing, and safety in campus or neighborhood apartment living. Pamphlets are handed out which describe how to report criminal activity.

ISU Public Safety directs a community oriented program, Students on Patrol (SOP), modeled after the popular Citizens on Patrol (COP). Students go through introductory training prior to engaging in any patrol like activities. SOP volunteers patrol campus and report suspicious activity via radio to Public Safety officers for immediate response.

Sexual Assault Prevention and Response

Sexual assault and sexual harassment are not condoned by the university and will be thoroughly investigated. The University educates the student community about sexual assaults and date rape through freshmen orientations, pamphlets and brochures, presentations to First Year Seminar classes, presentations through Rape Aggression Defense courses on avoidance and risk reduction techniques and other information programs. Literature on date rape education is available through the Anderson Gender Resource Center.

If you are a victim of sexual assault at this institution, your first priority should be to get to a place of safety. You should then obtain necessary medical treatment. Public Safety strongly advocates that a victim of sexual assault report the incident in a timely manner. Time is a critical factor for evidence collection and preservation. An assault should be reported directly to a Public Safety officer and/or the local police. Filing a report will not obligate the victim to prosecute, nor will it subject the victim to scrutiny or judgmental opinion. Filing a report will: (1) ensure that the victim of sexual assault receives the necessary medical treatment and tests. Medical treatment and tests are at no cost to the victim when requested by the Pocatello Police; (2) provide the opportunity for collection of evidence helpful in prosecution, which cannot be obtained later (ideally a victim of sexual assault should not wash, douche, use the toilet, or change clothing prior to a medical/legal exam); (3) provide a victin's advocate to be with and advise the victim throughout the crisis; and (4) assure the victim has access to free confidential counseling from counselors specifically trained in the area of sexual assault crisis intervention.

When a sexual assault victim contacts the Public Safety Department, the local police department and a representation from the Vice President of Student Affairs office will be notified. The victim of a sexual assault may choose the investigation to be pursued through the criminal justice system and the Student Affairs Disciplinary Counsel, or only the latter. A wavier may be signed with the local police that states the victim does not want the incident investigated by the Police. A representative of Public Safety and the Gender Resource Center will guide the victim through the available options and support the victim in his or her decision. Various counseling options are available from the University through the Student Health Center, the Gender Resource Center, Employee Assistance, and the Counseling Center, Counseling and support services outside the University system can be obtained through the family Service Alliance Center in Pocatello, or through the victin's advocacy program in your area.

University disciplinary proceedings, as well as special guidelines, for cases involving sexual misconduct, are detailed in the Student Handbook. The handbook provides, in part, that the accused and the victimn will each be allowed to choose one person to accompany them throughout the hearing. Both the victim and the accused will be informed of the outcome of the hearing. A student found guilty of violating the University sexual misconduct policy could be criminally prosecuted in the state courts and may be suspended or expelled from the University for the first offense. Student victims have an option to change their academic and/or on-campus living situations after an alleged sexual assault, if such changes are reasonably available.

The Anderson Gender Resourse Center trains, directs, and coordinates an advocacy program, "Project Hope" for women and men who need assistance. Advocates are on call 24 hours a day.

Each month an ISU campus case management team meets to coordinate assistance for victims. Monthly meetings of the Bannock County and Bonneville County Domestic Violence Task Force are attended by ISU Public Safety.

Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act

As a requirement of the Clery Act and the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act and the Idaho Sexual Offender Registration Notification and Community Right to Know Act, the Idaho State Police provides the university with s sex offender registration list and routine notifications of current students or employees on the list. Public Safety posts these updates and distribute them to the Dean of Students and Human Resources. The list is located in the Public Safety office. The list is provided by the Idaho State Police and connot be used to harass or intimidate anyone. Anyone using registry information to commit a crime against another is subject to arrest pursuant to Idaho Code 18-8326. Additional information regarding the Sex Offender Registry may be found at: Public Access to Sex Offender Registry. Information on sex offenders in other states may be found at http://www.criminalcheck.com/

Crime Reporting Policy

It is the policy of Idaho State University that all criminal activity is to be reported to ISU Public Safety, 625 E. Humbolt, (208)-282-2515, and to the police department in your location and that students, faculty, and staff should cooperate fully in any investigation of criminal conduct. Students may also report incidents of criminal offenses to the Vice President of Student Affairs Office, Hypostyle 284 Stop 8123, (208) 282-2794. Faculty and staff may also report incidents of criminal offenses to the Human Resources Office, Administration 312 Stop 8107, (208)282-2517.

Designated campus officials, campus security authorities, are provided training with information and forms to report to Public Safety any possible criminal circumstances that is reported to them. These officials include, but are not limited to, directors, deans, department heads, advisors to student organizations and athletic coaches.

As a result of the negotiated rule making process which followed the signing into law, the 1998 amendments to 20 U.S.C. Section 1092 (f), clarification was given to those considered to be campus security authorities. Campus "Pastoral Counselors" and Campus "Professional Counselors", when acting as such, are not considered to be a campus security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics.

The rulemaking committee defines counselors as:

Pastoral Counselor - an employee of an institution who is associated with a religious order or denomination , recognized by that religious order or denomination as someone who provides confidential counseling and who is functioning within the scope of that recognition as a pastoral counselor.

Professional Counselor - an employee of an institution whose official responsibilities include providing psychological counseling to members of the institution's community and who is functioning within the scope of his or her license or certification.

Annual letters are sent to campus pastoral leaders to notify them of University services and to ask them to encourage any crime victims they are counceling to report the incident to the police, Public Safety, or through our voluntary or anonymous reporting system.

Voluntary Confidential Reporting

If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the University System or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With your permission, the Anderson Gender Resource Center, the Vice President of Student Affairs office, the Housing Director, or Athletic Director, can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of the confidential repoort is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while takings steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, the University can keep an accurate record of the numgber of incidents involving students, determin where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution.
