Voluntary Confidential Reporting
The Campus Public Safety Office encourages anyone who is a victim or witness to any crime to promptly report the incident to the police. Because police reports are public records under state law, the Campus Public Safety Office cannot hold reports of crime in confidence. Confidential reports for purposes of inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics can generally be made to other PSU campus security authorities, as identified below.
Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) provide sexual assault services, and provides confidential counseling services. These services include providing information on how to file an official report for investigation, as well as information on the PSU Anonymous Report Form, located at: www.pdx.edu/shac
The Women's Resource Center can assist sexual assault victims in a confidential manner and provide similar information on how to file an official report for investigation, as well as how to provide anonymous reporting for inclusion in Clery crime reporting, utilizing the PSU Anonymous Report Form. These statistics are provided to the Campus Public Safety Office for inclusion in the annual Clery report.
Official reports of sexual assault that occur on campus should be made to the Campus Public Safety Office as 503-725-4407 (non-emergency) or 503-725-4404 (emergency only). Off campus incidents should be reported to the law enforcement agency with jurisdiction in the area.
