Who should use this form?
This form should be completed by individuals directly involved with Campus Police or administration who are likely to be the first point of contact for a victim, such as:
- Academic Deans

Students may also choose to use this form to report a crime or incident on campus.
When should this form be used?
The federal Clery Act requires universities to report information they receive about certain crimes. The information collected will be used to prepare crime statistics for the university's Annual Security Report.
Several types of crimes that must be reported using this form to comply with the Clery Act include:
- Hate crimes
- Sexual assaults
- Weapons violations
Rights of Victims and Witnesses
It is the policy of Oklahoma Christian University to ensure that victims and witnesses to crime are aware of their right to report criminal acts to the police, and to report university policy violations as appropriate (e.g., student conduct violations to the dean of students). However, if a reporting person requests anonymity, this request must be honored to the extent permitted by law. Accordingly, no information should be included on this form that would personally identify the victim without his or her consent.
Campus Police will use this form to determine the category of crime and location under which the crime should be reported according to the requirements of the Clery Act.
