Reporting Crimes and Incidents
Members of the College community are urged to notify the Campus Police Department immediately of any criminal activity or other emergency that occurs on campus. Campus Police officers will respond quickly and initiate whatever action is necessary to resolve the emergency, including the activation of off-campus police, fire, or medical agencies when appropriate. The emergency telephone number on campus is ext. 9-911 (Gaston County Communications). For all other calls dial 704-461-6200. All crimes reported to the campus police department will be investigated until an arrest is made, leads are exhausted, or the victim refuses to prosecute or cooperate. Reports will be used to calculate annual statistical information.
Reporting Of Crime Off-Campus
The campus community will also be notified within forty-eight hours of the College being aware of any crime of a severe nature that takes place near campus or at off-campus functions that are sponsored by Belmont Abbey.
