The Threat Assessment Team meets regularly to discuss issues relating to violence, physical safety, and potential threats directed at students, faculty, and staff at the LBCC campuses. The Team has adopted a multi-disciplinary approach that is a proactive, coordinated, and planned approach to deal with the complexities and volatility of violence & threats.
Safety on our campus and in our communities is everyone's responsibility. By recognizing and reporting behavior you believe to be a potential concern, you can help our community members get the assistance and services they might need. By practicing bystander intervention - that is advocating for potential victims, constantly reminding yourself to keep an eye out for our community, and encouraging others to act similarly, steps can be taken to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
Incidents observed or persons of concern can be reported online via this reporting web link or by contacting LBCC Campus Public Safety office - (541) 917-4440 or officer on duty - (541) 926-6855 (7x24 cell phone).
A Resource and Referral Guide is also provided with contact information when situations are encountered in which persons of concern are identified.
