How To Report Crimes on Campus

In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately. Students and employees should report any crime to the facilities manager at (415) 575-6283 and the Dean of Students at (415) 655-5573. Students and employees should also use the  CIIS Incident Report Form  and submit as soon as possible to any of the following:

 
Frank Talamantez, Director of Operations: ftalamantez@ciis.edu
Yunny Yip, Dean of Students, yyip@ciis.edu 
Human Resources: hroffice@ciis.edu 
 

Please report any crime that occurs in these locations:

  • On campus (Main campus on the 1400 block of Mission Street; Minna Street Center on Minna Street at 8th Street; and Fox Plaza, 1390 Market Street, Suite 111)
  • In any off-campus building owned or controlled by CIIS
  • On public property immediately adjacent to or accessible from the CIIS campus and the Minna Street Center

Students and employees are cautioned never to attempt to apprehend or pursue a suspected criminal. Crimes or suspected criminals should be reported to the facilities manager and dean of students or, if appropriate, to 911.

If you have any doubts whether to report something that has occurred, report it. Victims or witnesses of crimes may disclose them on a voluntary, confidential basis to the director of public safety or the dean of students. The designated CIIS administrators can then determine whether the event constitutes a crime that has to be collected and statistically reported. Your cooperation in timely reporting assists CIIS to issue timely warnings to the community. All crimes must be reported immediately.

See Tables on Crime Statistics for the CIIS Campus, or you may ask for the hard copy at the 4th floor reception desk at our main building (1453 Mission Street, San Francisco).

The Jeanne Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, codified at 20 USC 1092 (f) as a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private institutions of postsecondary education participating in federal student aid programs are subject to it. Violators can be fined up to $25,000 by the U.S. Department of Education, the agency charged with enforcing the act and with receiving information about alleged violations, or face other enforcement action.

The Clery Act was enacted by Congress and signed into law by President George Bush in 1990 as the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990. The law was championed by Howard and Connie Clery, whose daughter Jeanne was murdered at Lehigh University in 1986. The Clery's also founded the non-profit Security On Campus Inc., in 1987.

The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools give the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights and was amended again in 1998 to expand the reporting requirements. The 1998 amendments also formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery. The law was most recently amended in 2000 (The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act) to require schools beginning in 2003 to notify the campus community about where public "Megan's Law" information about registered sex offenders on campus could be obtained.

Clery Act Summary

Schools must publish an annual report disclosing campus security policies and three years of selected crime statistics.

  • Schools must make timely warnings to the campus community about crimes that pose an ongoing threat to students and employees
  • Each institution with a police or security department must have a public crime log
  • The U.S. Department of Education centrally collects and disseminates the crime statistics
  • Campus sexual assault victims are assured of certain basic rights

The Department of Education can fine schools that fail to comply.

POLICY FOR THE PROTECTION OF STUDENTS FROM SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

POLICY FOR THE PROTECTION OF STUDENTS FROM SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

 

In order to foster and maintain a community free from all forms of sexual misconduct, the CIIS administration has created a sexual misconduct policy.  This policy supports the new federal Title IX legislation that is aimed to protect the safety of its students.

 

We ask that you take a few minutes to review the policy found within the Student Affairs MyCIIS page.  Please do not hesitate to contact CIIS’s Title IX Officer with any questions.

Statement of Policy On Sex Offender Registration

In accordance with the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Jeanne Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, CIIS provides a link to the California State Sex Offender Registry.

 
All sex offenders are required to register in the State of California and to provide notice of each institution of higher education in California at which the person is employed, carries a vocation, or is a student.
 
Under California Penal Code 290 (the Sex Offender Registration Act), all sex offenders are required to register with local law enforcement if they live, work, or attend school in California. Those enrolled (part-time or full-time, degree-seeking or not) in or employed (part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid) at any California college or university must also register and update information with the campus police.
 
Since CIIS does not operate a full-fledged law enforcement agency, sex offenders must register with the agencies that patrol the areas in which our facilities are located.
 
In addition, by this policy, current or potential students must deliver written notice of their status as a sex offender to the college's Dean of Students no later than three (3) business days prior to their enrollment on the college or within five (5) days if their status changes while a student at CIIS; they must provide regular updates of moves, name changes, etc., as they do to local law enforcement.
 

 You may view a year-by-year comparison of crime statistics for CIIS. CIIS prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. The report is prepared in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies. You may view the CIIS annual crime report at: my.ciis.edu.
