Your Reporting Options

You have the right to decide whom and when to tell about what happened. Should you decide to report the incident to law enforcement, the Title IX Coordinator can assist you. It is also your right to have a support person (such as a sexual assault victim advocate, friend, or family member) with you while you report the incident to law enforcement and/or the Title IX Coordinator or designee.

The District’s primary concern is your safety and the safety of our campus community. If you have been affected by or witnessed sexual misconduct, you should not be discouraged from reporting the incident because you are concerned that you might be subject to disciplinary action for related student conduct violations, of drug or alcohol use. Unless the District finds the violations egregious, including, but not limited to, an action that places the health of safety of any other person at risk or involves plagiarism, cheating, or academic dishonesty, affected parties will not be subject to disciplinary action.

CRIMINAL REPORTING

SRJC District Police: 707-527-1000

Local Law Enforcement (police, sheriff)

Both Local Law Enforcement and SRJC District Police will:

  • Help you to obtain medical assistance
  • Help you obtain Emergency Protective Orders if appropriate
  • Conduct a criminal investigation if appropriate and requested
  • In the event of an arrest, help you obtain court order to protect you
  • Connect you with community support services

ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTING

Filing a Complaint with the SRJC Title IX Office:

To report sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, stalking, or threat of any of these committed by a student, staff, faculty, or other member of the campus community, with or without filing a police report and whether on or off campus, contact the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinators. You can also submit an online reporting form: Title IX: Sexual Misconduct Reporting Form.

Retaliation is prohibited against any person who assists someone with a report of sexual misconduct, or participates in any manner in an investigation or resolution of the sexual misconduct report. Retaliation includes threats, intimidation, reprisals, and/or adverse actions related to employment or education.
