Threats of Violence


TCSPP strives to maintain an environment free from intimidation, threats (direct or implied) or violent acts. The institution will not tolerate intimidating, threatening or hostile behavior of any kind. This includes threats, physical abuse, stalking, vandalism, arson, sabotage, possession or use of weapons of any kind on TCSPP property, or any other act that is dangerous in the workplace. Any object, regardless of its nature, is considered to be a weapon when used in a threatening or violent manner.

Emergency

If a threat seems imminent or if violent behavior is in progress, 9-1-1 should be called immediately for police assistance. After notifying local authorities, the campus Facilities department should be notified.

Non-Emergency

Upon learning of a threat of violence, members of the campus community should notify their supervisor, campus Dean, campus President, Facilities and/or Human Resources as soon as possible, and provide assistance with the investigation as necessary. Incidents may be reported anonymously if a victim feels that is it in his/her best interest to do so.

Employees who believe that they have been subjected to any of the behaviors listed above or who observe or have knowledge of a violation of the policies and procedures of the institution shall immediately report the incident to their manager, campus President, Facilities and/or Human Resources.
