To help members of the K-State community make informed decisions regarding their safety, the university’s Annual Security Report is published annually for each campus. K-State Olathe academic classes began in the fall 2012 semester, so this is only the second Campus Security Report published for this campus. Future annual security reports will contain information for the three previous years, as required. While K-State Olathe has not experienced any crimes in the past, crime is a national concern that affects us all. Developing and maintaining a safe and secure campus environment is the responsibility of the entire K-State community: security personnel, faculty, staff, students and visitors. The K-State Olathe Security Department, Room 102, in cooperation with local law enforcement and K-State Olathe’s Facilities Department, Student Services Department and Human Resources Department, annually prepares and distributes the K-State Annual Security Report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, formerly known as The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act. Notice of the availability of the Annual Security Report is distributed to every member of the university community by Oct. 1 each year. Anyone, including perspective students and employees, may obtain a paper copy by contacting the Security Department on the K-State Olathe campus, Room 102. The full text of this report is available at http://olathe.k-state.edu/ about/safety/index.html. Copies of the report can also be obtained at the K-State Olathe Security Department. All prospective employees and students may also access the report by the methods previously mentioned. For questions regarding this report or to obtain a printed copy, contact the Facilities Department at 913-3077309.

Alcohol Suicide Alcohol poisoning Suicide-risk factors, signs and prevention Alcohol poisoning is a medical emergency. Know the signs and resources to assist in an emergency. Signs of alcohol poisoning: • • • • Passed out or difficult to wake. Cold, clammy, pale or bluish skin. Slowed breathing. Vomiting while asleep or awake. Know how to help: • • • • Turn a vomiting person on his or her side to prevent choking. Keep the person awake. Never leave the person unattended. ** Never be afraid to get the help an individual needs. Call 911 Lifeline 911 policy Because it’s important that victims of alcohol-related emergencies receive medical treatment as soon as possible, the Lifeline 911 policy means that K-State students who seek immediate medical assistance for an alcohol-related emergency on behalf of themselves or another person will not be sanctioned for violation of any university alcohol-related policies. This policy allows students to make healthy decisions by seeking medical help without the fear of punishment. On-campus help Kansas State University’s Alcohol and Other Drug Education Services, a resource offered by University Counseling Services, is for K-State students, faculty and staff and offers the following: • Educational presentations on alcohol and other drug issues. • Responsible party hosting information, consultation, and promotion. • Professional referral resources (campus and community). • General education information (posters, handouts, fliers, etc.) • Consultation on special activities. • Sponsorship of Project ABC. • Free video checkout (i.e. drunk driving, alcoholism, and many other titles). • Local DUI regulations. • Non-alcoholic beverage recipes. • Basic assessment and intervention assistance. • DUI diversion counseling. Suicide is the second-leading cause of death in college students. It is also one of the most preventable forms of death. Because suicides and nonfatal suicide attempts have direct, profound, costly and emotionally damaging effects on the entire community, we strive to prevent both by educating Kansas State University community members about suicide prevention strategies. By understanding the risk factors and learning how to interact with someone who may be suicidal, suicide may be prevented. Ninety percent of individuals who complete suicide demonstrate some type of warning sign they are considering taking their own life. Warning signs for suicide Suicidal thoughts or comments, such as: • “People would be better off without me.” • “I can’t live like this anymore.” • “I might as well be dead.” • “I could do _______ to kill myself.” Behavioral cues, such as: • Purchasing a gun. • Stockpiling pills. • Giving away money or prized possessions. • Dramatic change in behavior. • Sudden interest or disinterest in religion. •Hopelessness. •Rage. • Uncontrolled anger. • Seeking revenge. • Acting reckless or engaging in risky activities, seemingly without thinking. • Feeling trapped or like there’s no way out. • Increased alcohol or drug use. • Withdrawing from friends, family and society. •Anxiety. •Agitation. • Inability to sleep or sleeping all the time. • Dramatic mood changes. • Expressing no reason for living or no sense of purpose in life. • Themes of death in conversation or other communication, including social media and texts. • Prior suicide attempts. Observing any of these warning signs in yourself or someone you knows means it’s crucial to get help. Asking someone if they are considering suicide DOES NOT increase risk of them taking action. Research has shown that once a person has been asked about suicide, they experience relief, not distress. Once ▪5▪ the question has been asked, fully LISTEN to what that person has to say and take steps to persuade them to get help. You may ask the individual any of the following: • Will you go with me to see a counselor? • Will you let me help you make an appointment with a counselor/doctor/etc.? • Will you promise me you will not hurt yourself until we can get help? If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide, consult with a mental health professional. Crime prevention and safety and security Safety is a shared responsibility Keeping K-State safe depends on the cooperation, involvement and support of all university community members. Carefully assess and modify your own behaviors and habits to lessen your vulnerability to unsafe conditions. We cannot list specific measures that will protect you from every threatening situation that may arise. Instead, we hope to teach you how to think “crime prevention” in day-to-day living. The suggestions presented should not be thought of a list of crime prevention measures, but as examples of common-sense behavior that will help you make life safer and more secure: Protect yourself • Download and use LiveSafe, K-State’s safety app. • Know how to recognize and use the emergency safety phones on campus. • Report any suspicious activity or person to the police immediately. • Walk and jog with a friend. • Use the best lit and most traveled walkways at night. • Ask visitors to identify themselves before allowing them access to your residence. • Park your car in lighted areas. • Sign up for K-State Alerts. Lock up • Always lock the door where you live, even when leaving for a short period of time. • Always lock your car, your bike and other valuables. • When you return to your car, have the key ready to open the door. • Never prop open exterior doors to residential areas. Prevent theft • Don’t leave personal items such as laptops. phones, or textbooks unattended — even for a short amount of time. • Engrave your valuable items at the K-State Police Department (no charge). • Keep a list of valuable possessions including the makes, models, and serial numbers. • Don’t keep large amounts of money on you. In an effort to promote safety and security awareness, Kansas State University offers a wide range of programs to educate and inform students, employees, parents and the community at-large on a variety of issues. Programs are offered throughout the academic year and summer, and specific program frequency may vary. Education Programs Fall Spring Onboarding Safety Orientation: All new employees, staff, students and tenents upon occupancy at K-State Olathe campus attend a building orientation session, which includes safety training, crime prevention awareness and emergency response procedures. Safety Awareness & Crime Prevention Programs: Each semesterat least one program is presented at K-State Olathe, including training for CSAs, ALICE active shooter training, crime prevention awareness and emergency response procedures.

Public apathy is a criminal’s greatest ally. Remember, suspicion is the only reason anyone needs for calling the police. Crimes, suspicious activity, or other emergencies on campus should be reported immediately. Do not assume that someone else has reported harmful, suspicious or criminal activity. If you suspect a crime has been or is being committed, call the K-State Olathe Security Department of the Facilities Department immediately. The Security Department is located in the main lobby, and officers are always available by phone when they are on patrol. A K-State Olathe security officer will immediately report to the scene of a reported or suspected crime. If you suspect a crime has been or is being committed, you should immediately call one of the emergency numbers listed in the table to the right: Silent Witness Phone Security Department Room 102 (in lobby) Office: 913-307-7318 On campus: 7-3718 John Bembry Office cell: 913-481-0575 Security Manager Cell: 913-274-6274 (Weekdays, 7 a.m.-3 p.m.) Alisha Thomas Security Officer (Weekdays, 3-11 p.m.) Cell: 913-481-0575 Facilities Department Room 150A/B (in dock) Office: 913-307-7309 On campus 7-7309 Andrena Keesee Facilities Manager Cell: 913-953-6050 Andy Stout Facilities Assistant Cell: 913-210-9594 Olathe Police 501 Old 56 Hwy Olathe, KS 66061 K-State has provided a Silent Witness program through the Kansas State University Police Department, which is a confidential and anonymous reporting procedure available to anyone who elects to report crimes or suspicious activity.

Reported criminal acts or emergencies on campus result in a security officer being immediately dispatched to the location of occurrence. The Security Department will investigate the incident, document the information and take appropriate action. This action may involve working with the Olathe Police Department or Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, Johnson County district attorney and other state and federal agencies, as necessary. Cases are adjudicated through either the city or county and/or through K-State’s disciplinary system. The K-State Olathe Security Department will also call in other emergency services, such as fire or ambulance, and aid in contacting other appropriate university offices that may need to respond. Other means to report crimes include in-person reports to the Security Department or Facilities Department phone reports, LiveSafe app, and the KSU anonymous silent witness reporting. Bystander intervention Bystanders play a critical role in the prevention of sexual assaults, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. For example, bystanders may have the power to stop assaults, get help for people who have been victimized, and/or alert the appropriate authorities. Kansas State University is committed to promoting a culture of shared accountability where bystanders are actively engaged in the prevention of prohibited conduct. As such, all members of the university community are encouraged to intervene or interrupt any acts of sexual violence they witness. The following are ways bystanders can intervene: • When it is safe to do so, confront or report people who seclude, hit on or sexually assault people who are incapacitated. • Speak up when someone discusses plans to take sexual advantage of another person. • Call the police when a person is being physically abusive toward another. • Refuse to leave the area — or call police — if a person is trying to get you to leave so they can sexually take advantage of another. • Ensure community members who are incapacitated are not left alone or in vulnerable situations. • Refer people to appropriate university and community resources, such as K-State’s CARE — the Center for Advocacy, Response and Education. Procedures to follow if a crime of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking has occurred Numerous options are available for support and reporting on campus and within the Olathe/Greater Kansas City community if an individual is a victim of sexual assault, dating violence or stalking. Accessing these options will depend on the wishes of the survivor; however, it is important to note there is no one correct response, simply different options to access resources and reporting options. To explore options confidentially an individual may want to speak with an advocate. The following information outlines a victim’s options, should a sexual or physical assault occur: • First and foremost, find a safe space — Safety should always be the first priority following an assault. • Consider taking steps to preserve all physical evidence — The victim is advised to not bathe, shower, brush teeth, douche or change clothing until they receive a medical exam. • Find support — Contacting a close friend, relative or victim advocate who can provide support and accompany the victim to the medical exam and/or police department, should they choose to go. Advocates from the Center for Advocacy, Response and Education (CARE) are available to the victim to provide support. • Get medical attention as soon as possible — An exam may reveal the presence of physical injury that of which the victim is unaware. The health and safety of all victims is of the upmost importance. The state of Kansas allows victims of sexual assault to preserve evidence, with or without reporting to law enforcement. If you choose at the time of your exam not to report to law enforcement, the evidence collected at your exam will be sent to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and held for five years. A Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) can be performed at your local or regional medical center. In addition to preserving and documenting evidence, obtaining medical attention might also entail providing prophylaxis, sexually transmitted infection testing, and follow-up treatment. Emergency contraception can be provided to victims at risk of pregnancy from the assault (if the victim is seen within 120 hours). If the victim reports memory loss, loss of consciousness or other circumstances suspicious for a drug-facilitated assault, a urine test may be done within 96 hours. Some of the commonly used drugs, however, are only detectable in the urine for six to eight hours after ingestion. • Consider talking to a counselor — Seeing a counselor or therapist may be important in helping victims understand their feelings and begin the process of recovery. ▪9▪ • Consider talking to a Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education (CARE) Coordinator: Care Coordinators provide assistance for victimized individuals and assist with communication and referrals to other offices and agencies on and off campus, including law enforcement, legal, medical and academic resources. Reporting of the PPM 3010 then an Administrative Review Team (ART) is formed. The ART evaluates the report, which can include an investigation, and makes findings of fact. If a violation of the policy is found, disciplinary sanctions will be recommended up to and including exclusion from the campus, dismissal from employment, or expulsion from the University. For more information on the PPM 3010 and the university’s procedures for investigating alleged violations, visit k-state.edu/affact/resolution. • Consider talking to the police — Sexual and physical assault are crimes. It is important to remember that • Consider talking to Office of Institutional Equity — An act of sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking may violate the university’s Policy Prohibiting The following information outlines different reporting options individuals may access: Discrimination, Reporting Harassment, Sexual Phone Location Website Options Violence, and Stalking (PPM 3010), and thus Confidential The Center 785-532-6444 206 Holton Hall http://www.k-state.edu/ violations are subject to for Advocacy, Manhattan care disciplinary sanctions Response, and through a report to the Education (CARE) Office of Institutional Title IX Office of 785-532-6220 103 Edwards Hall, https://www.k-state.

The guide’s purpose is to help you recognize some of the signs of students in distress, be supportive of their needs and facilitate referrals to the appropriate resources on campus. It also helps increase your awareness of the Office of Student Life. How to use the Faculty/Staff Student of Concern Guide When a student of concern has been identified, the Faculty/ Staff Student of Concern Guide provides a quick overview of K-State student support offices and emergency services. The guide has detailed support information, protocols and resource information, and it helps determine whether an issue is beyond a faculty or staff member’s ability to provide support. The guide also provides important information about the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA; the reporting requirements for Title IX; and information on sexual assault resources. Campus access Campus security The K-State Olathe Security Department helps preserve a safe campus environment where diverse social, cultural and academic values are allowed to develop and prosper. During normal business hours, the Olathe campus is generally open to employees, students, visitors, contractors, guest and invitees. Outside normal operation hours, access cards are required to enter the building. The campus currently consists of one building. K-State Olathe does not operate any residence halls. The Security Department has two full-time security officers who patrol the campus from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday. Officers also are on duty on weekends when the campus is open for scheduled events. While on duty, officers can be reached via cellphone at 913-481-0575 or at the office number 913-3077318. In addition, officers from the Olathe Police Department periodically drive through the campus as part of their routine patrols. The K-State Olathe building is equipped with 38 security cameras, an access control card-key system, and emergency code blue phones in the front and back parking lots. Custodial support for the building is scheduled while security officers are present. The Facilities Department oversees contract services for landscaping to assure trees, shrubs and other vegetation are trimmed back and do not obstruct exterior lighting or hydrants. The Facilities Department also contracts services to perform required inspections and maintenance of backflow, hydrant, emergency exit lights, extinguishers, fire alarm, kitchen hoods, and suppression gas and wet sprinkler systems. In addition, there are contracted services for the maintenance and software upgrades for the surveillance cameras and access control systems. K-State Olathe Security Department authority and jurisdiction The K-State Olathe Security Department communicates and coordinates with the K-State Police Department on the Manhattan campus and also maintains a close working relationship with the Olathe Police Department to maximize the services provided to the K-State Olathe community. Working relationship with local law enforcement agencies The contracted security personnel on the K-State Olathe campus have no authority to make arrests. They will attempt to apprehend or detain a suspect until the Olathe Police Department arrives to manage the situation or incident. However, if the suspect will not cooperate while being detained, the security personnel cannot force apprehension. The security personnel will assist the Olathe Police Department in containing the situation/emergency as necessary and in providing information as required for an investigation. Responding to emergency calls Emergency calls received by security officers are promptly referred to Olathe Police, EMS or Fire departments as necessary. Security officers will also notify the appropriate campus administrator and provide a written incident report on all emergency situations. Criminal investigations, vehicle accidents, and/or moving violations are referred to the Olathe Police Department. The Olathe Police and Fire departments respond to all police and fire calls on the campus.

A number of different acts fall into the category of sexual violence, including but not limited to rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, domestic violence, and dating violence. Use of alcohol or other drugs by a perpetrator or victim does not excuse acts of sexual violence. The determination regarding the presence or absence of consent shall be based upon the totality of circumstances in a particular case, including the context in which the alleged incident(s) occurred. If an individual can comprehend the sexual nature of the proposed act, can understand he or she has the right to refuse to participate, and possesses a rudimentary grasp of the possible results arising from participation in the act, he or she has the capacity to consent. A person may be incapable of giving consent because of mental deficiency or disease, or because of the effect of any alcoholic liquor, narcotic, drug or other substance, which condition was known by the offender or was reasonably apparent to the offender. Consent will not necessarily be inferred from silence or passivity alone. Sexual violence is considered sexual harassment, and is therefore considered to be discrimination. This policy covers employees, students, applicants for employment or admission, contractors, vendors, visitors, guests and participants in university-sponsored programs or activities. The academic or work relationship sometimes extends beyond the university campus and after university work and class hours. Therefore, in some situations, this policy may apply to allegations of discrimination, harassment or retaliation for behavior that occurs off campus or during afterhours functions sponsored by the university. Off-campus occurrences that are not related to university-sponsored programs or activities are investigated under this policy only if those occurrences relate to discrimination, harassment, or retaliation alleged on campus. If you wish to report sexual violence for criminal investigation, contact the K-State Olathe Security Dept. at 913-307-7318, Facilities Dept. at 913-307-7309 or the City of Olathe Polic Dept. IN addition, you may contact the K-State Police Department at 785-532-6412. If you wish to report sexual violence for investigation by the university, contact the Office of Institutional Equity at 785-532-6220. You can make reports and request that an investigation not take ▪ 18 ▪ place at the Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education at 785-532-6444. In some circumstances, however, CARE cannot guarantee that no investigation will be undertaken. CARE will provide its services, regardless of whether a report is made to law enforcement or to the university for investigation. K-State will provide written notification to students and employees regarding health, mental health, victim advocacy and legal assistance. The Office of Institutional Equity will evaluate and investigate complaints. The reporting party and the accused are afforded an equitable process throughout, and both are informed of the outcomes of the proceeding. Persons who violate this policy are subject to sanctions, up to and including violation specific educational programing, warning, probation, restricted access to university property, no contact directives, suspension, expulsion from the university and dismissal from employment or expulsion from the university. Remedial actions will be taken to restore any losses suffered as a result of a violation of this policy. Examples of remedial actions include, but are not limited to, re-evaluation of a grade, an evaluation completed by someone other than the respondent, reconsideration of an application for employment, placement in a position, back pay and lost benefits, withdrawal of a disciplinary action, or a change of housing. For more information, contact the Office of Institutional Equity at 785-532-6220. Information for crime victims about disciplinary proceedings Kansas State University will, in accordance with Section 487 (a)(26) of the Higher Education Opportunity Act, upon written request, disclose to the alleged victim of any crime of violence (as that term is defined in Section 16 of title 18, United States Code), or sex offense, the report on the results of any disciplinary proceeding conducted by such institution against a student who is the alleged perpetrator of such crime or offense with respect to such crime or offense. If the alleged victim of such crime or offense is deceased as a result of such crime or offense, the next of kin of such victim shall be treated as the alleged victim for purposes of this paragraph. Statements on alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, and controlled substances The possession, sale or furnishing of alcohol on the university campus is governed by the K-State Alcoholic Beverage Policy, found in Chapter 3053 of the university’s Policy and Procedures Manual, and Kansas state law. The Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Division is the state’s regulatory authority for enforcing Kansas liquor laws through the issue of state licenses and permits, monitoring product flow, conducting compliance reviews of licensed premises and enforcing restrictions on underage access to alcoholic beverages and a variety of other statutory violations. A bill passed by the 1987 legislature permits consumption of alcoholic liquor in nonclassroom space on property under the control of the Kansas Board of Regents. The policy adopted by the Board of Regents and enforced at Kansas State University can be found in Chapter 3053 of the K-State Policy and Procedures Manual. The enforcement of alcohols laws and policy on campus is the responsibility of the K-State Police Department. Kansas State University has been designated a drugfree workplace, and the possession, sale, manufacture or distribution of any controlled substance is illegal under both state and federal laws. These laws are enforced by the K-State Police Department, and violators are subject to university disciplinary action and criminal prosecution. Parental notification of drug and alcohol policy violations The U.S. Congress passed an amendment to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA or the Buckley Amendment) on Oct. 1, 1998, removing restrictions to disclosing information to parents or guardians of students under the age of 21 about their student’s violation of a university alcohol or other drug policy. Kansas State University notifies the parents or guardians as listed on the student record if that student has a second violation of a university alcohol policy or a first-time drug violation. This notification is only for students who are under 21 at the time of the incident and disclosure. moment and uses it as such. However, drug violations or repeated alcohol violations may indicate that a more serious problem exists, and the university notifies parents as an important resource for the student. Crime statistics This report provides statistics for the previous two years. The data covers a 12-month period, Jan. 1-Dec. 31 for each year listed.

On a student’s first on-campus alcohol or drug policy violation, the student is subject to a judicial review panel or an administrative review. Students are often given an educational sanction to learn more about substance abuse and how to make healthier decisions.
